Maximise productivity, minimise distractions

Pam Brook heads up her family business, Brookfarm, a venture that began as a dinner party remark to become an Aussie success story. Today, Brookfarm employs 75 staff and exports across the world – not bad at all for a business that started in the family kitchen. Brookfarm won the 2007 Telstra Business of the Year and Pam is now a judge for Telstra Business Awards. In episode three, Adam speaks to Pam on how to maximise business productivity, while managing distractions along the way.
