Francesco is brilliant! Like he says at the beginning, this isn't just a rehash of the book, but the principles behind the method. We can apply the tactics and get the immediate gratification of accomplishment; but the training takes us deeper into a new way of approaching our day where we become the masters of time.

Robert Begley

Francesco shows us how to engineer time to be a friend instead of a predator.

Maria Elena Manfredini

I attended the Pomodoro Training 1 online with Francesco. The course is great! It went beyond my expectations because it does not only deal with the use of the Pomodoro technique, but it provides the partecipants with a lot of interesting views on the concept of time.

Judy Michael

The Pomodoro Technique is much more than a timer. The technique is about focusing your intent and energy for maximum productivity in short sprints, not long marathons that your brain was not designed to do. The first Pomodoro was the hardest, but it is teaching me how to become more efficient professionally so I can enjoy my personal time more.

Simone Casciaroli

I thought I knew the pomodoro technique and I assumed it was simply a time boxing technique. The course helped understand how deep time affect our decision making and show how to incrementally get better at organising your life while being more in control of time.
