David Allen, author of Getting Things Done, guest of The Xplorers Toastmasters

The 7th of June 2011 has been quite an important day in the history of our The Xplorers Toastmasters Club.

We had the honor and pleasure of having the world-famous David Allen as our guest. David is a personality in the world of personal productivity, he is the author of the book “Getting Things Done – The Art of Stress-Free Productivity” and the methodology which is famous for its acronym “GTD”.

David and his wife Kathryn were passing through Milan, and by pure luck they were available for a half hour before going to dinner. And David, being the great communicator that he is, gladly accepted the invitation to present in front of our Toastmasters members for a dozen minutes.

And we had to have David’s picture holding a copy of the Toastmaster Magazine!

Here is the video of David’s presentation, enjoy!

      Assolutamente d’accordo, e per me è un vero onore conoscerlo personalmente da un anno, ed averlo incontrato sia in Italia (per due volte) che essere andato a trovarlo a casa sua ad Ojai, in California. Lui e Kathryn sono due magnifiche persone.
