Dermot Crowley is one of Australia’s foremost thought-leaders on productivity. He is the author of Smart Work, and the founder of Adapt Productivity. Building on many years of experience in the productivity training industry, he created Adapt in 2002 with a vision of helping management and staff in Australia’s leading organisations to manage their time, priorities and emails more effectively using tools like MS Outlook and mobile technology.
Dermot has a highly inspiring yet practical approach to productivity in the modern workplace. His passion is creating real behavioural change, and has developed a system for working productively that is applicable to anyone working in today’s busy, email driven workplace.
While remaining heavily involved in the training activities of the business, much of Dermot’s time is spent working with senior leaders and leadership teams on their productivity, and their ability to lead productivity in their teams. His pragmatic approach and wealth of experience ensure that he brings relevant strategies to the table for the leadership level. His focus on productivity technology ensures that executives are getting the most from the tools at their fingertips.
