Ever wonder if there is a better way to manage all the information to which we have access. We want to find it, filter it, organize it, consume it, store it, share it – on and offline – across all our devices – and save time and effort while we do it all.
Our guests for this session will share their work flows and associated applications they have found to be successful such as Pocket, Feedly, Evernote, DIIGO, INNO reader, etc. There will also be an opportunity for participants to share their works flows.
