Sakeenah Group was originally set up with the objective of fundamentally improving human lives by transforming Mauritius into a nation of economically independent individuals who are able to do more for themselves and society through entrepreneurship. Overtime, driven by its success, its area of focus extended to Africa and the Middle East. SKN Training Centre, a Sakeenah Group venture, was set up to provide best in class curated training workshops that:
- Focus on helping today’s knowledge workers improve themselves and consequently their organisation
- Teach practical skills and principles
- Are accessible and relevant to the way the world now operates
David Allen believes that, “Your mind is for having ideas, not holding them”, that is why he created Getting Things Done. After decades of in-the-field research and practice of his productivity methods, David wrote the international best-seller Getting Things Done (published in 2001). Since then the book has sold over 2.5 million copies, has been published in over 28 languages, and TIME magazine heralded it as “the defining self-help business book of its time.”
In 2015, he released the new edition of the book, with new insights, updates, and discoveries about the GTD methodology and its many personal and professional applications.
Today, David Allen is considered the leading authority in the fields of organisational and personal productivity. The David Allen Company, run by David and his wife Kathryn, oversees the certification academy and quality standards for global partners offering Getting Things Done courses and coaching around the world. David and Kathryn live in Amsterdam.
