Workplace Productivity Strategist

Ann Michael is an author, a speaker and a coach who is passionate about helping people create a work environment that actually allows them to work! Her work is conducted both virtually and in-person with individuals and groups to improve workplace productivity.

Ann Michael has spent her entire professional career helping busy professionals get the information they need to get their job done.

During her first career, as a sales representative in the online information industry, long before “internet” became a household word. She worked for The New York Times Information Service (NYTIS) and later for Mead Data Central (Lexis/Nexis). Her clients included Fortune 500 companies, major media organizations, and law firms. Her time as a branch sales manager found her responsible for overseeing the team selling to the financial market. This included investment banking, commercial banking and insurance companies from Philadelphia to Boston. The branch’s revenue increased from $3.9 million to nearly $19 million in four years. Ann Michael won multiple top sales rep and sale manager awards during her tenure.

What she observed during the dozen years in that industry was a common theme…the professionals who effectively managed information—whatever the source—are the ones who are the most productive and lead a balanced life. This observation led Ann Michael to found Mise En Place.

Ann Michael is the co-author of three productivity books:

  • Focus Organization Productivity: Ideas for Improving Success in the Workplace
  • Exploring Productivity: Ideas from Industry Professionals on Getting More Done in the Workplace
  • Insights on Productivity. Ideas from Industry Professionals on Getting More Done in the Workplace
