Peter TurlaFormer NASA rocket designer, Peter Turla, a world-renowned time-management expert, can say with authority, “Time management is not rocket science; with proper training, anyone can learn to dramatically improve their time management and achieve more in less time—with less stress.”

Peter Turla’s exciting, innovative time-management tips have been featured in dozens of publications including the New York Times, Industry Week, USA Today, and The London World News. He has also appeared on more than 200 radio and TV shows.

While at NASA he helped design the propulsion system of the Saturn 5 rocket. He also developed practical techniques to accomplish multiple priorities with minimum time and effort. He now teaches organizations how to deal with fast-changing priorities, frequent interruptions, stress, too much to do, and tight deadlines.

His managing-time-and-multiple-priorities seminars get rave reviews. Participants love the wide variety of practical techniques taught in a way that motivates and educates.

Turla’s seminars are part of the productivity training for many of the world’s top organizations.
