The new year is the perfect time to adjust how we work in order to be more productive. On Tuesday, January 20, EAC Toronto branch kicks off 2015 with a double feature of experts discussing practical suggestions aimed at making work better, more productive, and even healthier. (Note that this month’s meeting is on the third Tuesday of the month.)

Luigi has written for organizations including Microsoft, MTS Allstream, and the province of Ontario’s Ministry of Health, as well as consumer and trade publications such as the Toronto Star, itbusiness.ca, and cbc.ca.
