About this Experience

Although we’re all trying to be greener, paper continues to be a fact of our lives. 80 percent of the paper we keep is never given a second glance! Before we know it we have a paper monster on our desks. Wouldn’t it be nice to know, once and for all, what you really need to do with all this paper and how to organize it all? In this informative and interactive presentation, your whole office will be introduced to Lis’ unforgettable system for not only organizing your paper, but also getting more done.

Lis is a professional organizer who holds a masters degree in clinical psychology from John F. Kennedy University and a certification as a professional organizer. Her professional goal is to help otherwise successful people deal with the physical, emotional and existential burdens of their "stuff" - both paper and things - and to alleviate that burden through organization. Her work is designed to inspire, inform and motivate people to take action over their own personal paper monsters.

What other offices had to say about this Experience

"WOW, that was amazing! Lis was the best speaker and presenter of the entire conference! From her passion right out of the gate, to her (hilarious) numerous examples, to her tips and tricks, to her easygoing presentation style, she was dynamic and captured the audience from beginning to end! I highly recommend Lis to speak and present at your next conference! Thank you so much Lis, you made my conference!"
