With the 'Organizer Extraordinaire', Eve Abbott
Since 1988 Eve Abbott has taught thousands of clients—corporations, non-profits, government agencies, small businesses, and individuals—how to work at least 25 percent more effectively through her programs and consultations.
"If your mom handed you a milk crate and said, 'Put everything you love in here, we're moving tomorrow,' and if she did that 10 times before you were 12 years old, believe me you would have great prioritizing skills," Eve says with a laugh. Unlike many organizational specialists who help tidying up desks and closets, Abbott focuses on organizational tips that reflect her humorous, practical approach to finding stuff and saving time. As she wryly observes, "You can't teach someone better management skills if they can't find their car keys."
The author of How to Do Space Age Work with a Stone Age Brain™ (2004), Eve has degrees in Sociology and Psychology from the University of California and holds a Lifetime Adult Teaching Credential. She appears in New York Times, Working Woman and Home Office Computing articles, and her clients range from Hewlett Packard to S. C. Johnson & Son, Inc. and Alameda County as well as countless professionals. Eve Abbott is a member of the Board of the Institute for Management Consultants, Northern California chapter and coordinator of the IMC-NorCal Speakers Bureau.
