Conversation & Coffee

Date:  March 15, 2017 at 7:30 AM
Location:  Playhouse in the Park

Topic:  Unlock Your Potential, Get Organized 

There are many emotional and personality traits that can prevent people from getting organized. In this program we will explore the obstacles that hinder progress. We will also discuss how to get the office organized with everyone’s help.

  • Break free from perfectionism
  • Stop procrastination and start organizing
  • Strategies to help manage ADHD. Many adults are not diagnosed, which is affecting their home life and work performance
  • Team approach to organizing the office

This program is taught by a professional organizer who understands getting organized is not always about the stuff.

Speaker:   Lori Firsdon, Owner, Forte Organizers, LLC

Lori Firsdon, owner of Forte Organizers, has been organizing professionally since 2006. She works with individuals and families in their homes as well as business people in their offices. She is a sought-after public speaker on personal and business organization skills. 

Lori is a regular Dayton Daily News columnist and has been featured on national television shows focused on organizing, including on A&E Television’s popular Hoarders.
