"Julie Ireland is a 5-star black-belt executive coach and a 'productivity whisperer' who tailors her coaching to clients to keep them laser-focused on their goals and projects for work and life. I could not recommend anyone more highly for someone looking to accelerate his or her personal productivity and meaningful goal-setting in life."

"I worked with GTD for a number of years, but when I took on a new, expanded role in my company, I found that my system didn’t scale with my new responsibilities. So, I engaged Julie Ireland as my GTD coach to help me refine my system and clear my runway. After two sessions, I found myself out of a job due to a company restructuring. I am so thankful that Julie was there as she led me through an intentional process of the GTD areas of focus and the natural planning model where I was able to get really clear on my priorities and what was important. I went into the coaching sessions thinking GTD was about control and managing actions but soon learned that the true power of GTD is clarity and focus. Julie was a wonderful, empathetic coach who has a contagious enthusiasm for the GTD methodology and lives by the principles."

“I have been student, fan, and proponent of GTD since I first hired David Allen to consult with me in 2001. After David and I met, he quickly recommended I continue my journey with Meg Edwards. It’s now been 16 years since I started in this journey, and the lessons and coaching Meg has provided for me still resonate with me daily. It has allowed me to build several multi million dollar companies, and much more importantly, design a life worth living by my standards. If you get a chance, even if it is just a quick call, to connect with Meg, you will perhaps have found someone who genuinely can help you design the life you so desire.”
"As I progressed in my career and my responsibilities increased, I found myself struggling to stay in front of all my personal and professional responsibilities. I was no stranger to GTD having read the book, attended their single day course and worked with the GTD system for nearly 8 years. Sensing a need to be even more productive, I began working with Julie Ireland and the GTD Coaching program in April 2011. Julie was able to quickly diagnose my ‘system’; with some tweaks and adjustment, I was able to realize immediate benefit. With time the focus of coaching has shifted from the runway to the higher altitudes; from improved productivity to life fulfillment. With Julie’s guidance, what started as a desire to ‘get control’ has turned into a journey striving to be more intentional and more balanced – both personally and professionally."
"Julie works for the David Allen Company, and has been a GTD coach for 12 years according to Linked In (so...she's been teaching other people how to implement this stuff since long before either of us picked up the book). We worked together when I was just getting up and running at Wayfair, and I recommend doing exactly what she recommends without question...she knows her stuff and has definitely worked with bigger messes than you.
I was attempting to describe to Rob how working with Julie not only got my tasks, commitment, emails, and workload under control, but also got me thinking (and operating) at a much higher level about WHAT tasks, commitments, emails and work I actually wanted to let into my life in order to have the life I want. "Productivity Coach" is the most understandable way to describe what Julie does, but it's a massive, massive undersell of what you'll be able to accomplish if you take her advice if your experience is anything like mine."
"Reading the book and implementing the system in Getting Things Done (GTD) was essential to my understanding of productivity. But the blind spots in my grasp of GTD were stumbling blocks that kept me from mastery for years. Finally, I reached out to the coaches. Julie Ireland, was cunningly adept at doing what I most desperately needed: she sussed-out my weak spots and got me moving on the right track. She helped me to grab the low-hanging fruit of GTD competence, which for me turned out to be the implementation of ground level next actions, and went on to resolving my real obstacles. I make this sound fairly straight forward, but it’s a hair-raising process best managed by someone who knows what she’s doing—and she does. Although individual strengths and weaknesses vary, I believe that the stuck places of our lives warrant the attention of a coach who has a thorough knowledge of and a proven history with the application of GTD. It is not an overstatement that GTD and the virtual coaching changed my life significantly for the good: the time and resources I invested in this process have been more productive than could I have imagined or hoped, and I’m deeply indebted."
