Spring 2022 Business Update

April Forum


Two main topics were discussed.


1. What is your relationship with your mobile phone? Guidelines to help you manage it:

– keep your phone on silent

– turn off notifications

– sort apps into folders or just use the app library, delete apps no longer needed

– having social media on your phones was a split call.

– NO phone for first 30/60 mins in the morning, or last thing at night.

– have separate work and private phones


2. Apps that our members use that improve your effectiveness – this touched on some for personal use, too:

– sanebox – AI for your e mails, learned behaviours leading to auto-sorting

– seatfrog – train upgrades to 1st class

– what3 words – for travel, more pinpointed than Waze e.g. if just post code.

– intromate / imovie- for short videos

– picturethis / seek – for nature, flora, fauna and wildlife identification

– ways – navigation, inc. speed cameras

– duolingo – languages

– headspace – meditation, sleeping

– microsoft to do – links to 365

– lastpass – password security

– authy – double authentification

– voicemail – email notifications for voicemail messages

– exclaimer – email signature management
