As The Inefficiency Assassin™, productivity expert Helene Segura empowers stressed out professionals on the go with the tools to slay wasted time. Personal inefficiency at work leads to increased stress levels, lower morale, higher absenteeism, more turnover – and rising spending on employee health care and hiring. Why not improve productivity, decrease stress levels, and increase profits instead?
The author of two Amazon best-selling books, Helene Segura has been the featured productivity expert in over 100 media interviews including publications such as Woman’s Day Magazine and Money Magazine, as well as on Fox, CBS, ABC and NBC affiliates. She has coached hundreds of clients to productivity success and performance improvement by applying neuroscience and behavioral modification techniques to wipe out destructive, time-wasting habits. Kanban, Kaizen and time management may be fuddy duddy terms; Helene’s content-packed keynotes and workshops, however, are anything but. Helene turns time management on its head by sharing both client case studies and pop culture examples to teach her mind-bending framework for decreasing interruptions, distractions and procrastination so that companies can spend more time generating revenue.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, a former soccer player for Texas A&M, and an avid world traveler, her wide variety of life experiences and exposure to cultures around the world allow her to offer unique insight and assistance to her clients and audiences. Her education background – both in her schooling and teaching – influences everything she does. Her Bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University is in Political Science. She focused on international affairs, so she learned about negotiations and the importance of dissecting situations from different perspectives. Her Master’s degree from UTSA is in Educational Leadership. She learned about running a business, as well as about educational psychology – behavior change and behavior management. She loves studying the mind! As a secondary teacher for 11 years in a Title I district, she was able to apply all of this and figure out what makes individuals tick and, therefore, what will get them to change and be successful. She left the classroom in 2004 to start her own company. In both her individual consulting and keynotes, she uses all of these skills to teach audiences how to pin-point their barriers to personal efficiency and implement changes that will save their sanity – and save the companies for which they work a great deal of money.

An observer’s rating for Karaoke Singer is directly proportional to the amount of adult beverages consumed by the listener and the amount of heavy machinery noise in the immediate vicinity. (And, yes, I do realize that Karaoke was misspelled by the graphic artist in the chart, but since it would take me awhile to fix it, and it’s such a minor mistake that most people don’t even know it’s misspelled until I tell them, I’d rather use my time to have more cheese and wine. ;>)
