ABC Amsterdam - Tuesday November 6, 17:00
Public servant/author/professor/CEO Robert C. Pozen, will talk about his most recent book, Extreme Productivity, followed by a book signing at the American Book Center.
Besides teaching at Harvard Law School, he served as "supersecretary" of economic affairs for Mitt Romney, governor of Massachusetts in 2003. There he oversaw the agencies which eliminated a $3 billion deficit, now one of Romney's strongest campaign arguments.
Speaking in Amsterdam on U.S. election night, Pozen is willing to talk about his years in public service and academia as well as his his role as CEO in the financial sector and law firm partner.
How does he do all that? He explains it all in his book, Extreme Productivity, a book he wrote for anyone feeling overwhelmed by an existing workload. Pozen shows that in order to be truly productive, professionals must make a critical shift in their mind-set: from hours worked to results produced. He helps people at all stages of their careers read, write, and make presentations quicker and more effectively-while leading full and productive personal lives as well.
