Work Smarter Not Harder


Title: Work Smarter Not Harder
Speaker: Marissa Kotze
Date: Thursday, 22 August 2013
Time: 16:00 - 17:00
Venue: SAAO Auditorium


This is not an Astronomy talk!

Topics to be discussed include:
– Productivity
– Time-management
– Success and Failure
– Communication
– Teamwork/Collaboration
– Stress
– Balance

As someone that managed teams in a corporate environment for 10 years,
I’ve learned a lot about the importance of these principles. I’ve also
devoted 6 years to post-graduate studies in Astronomy (including NASSP
Hons and NASSP MSc) and am currently a post-doc at SAAO.

I therefore have a rather unique perspective and I’m willing to share
tips about techniques and attitudes that I have found very useful.
