Meet the Prez
Joanne Burke Peterson is President and CEO of New World Office. Joanne works with organizations who want to be more profitable by having their employees find the information they need when they need it. These companies care about their employees’ well-being and professional development, and want them to excel and strengthen the company.
With Joanne’s help busy professionals can identify the hidden actions in their day-to-day workflow processes that can negatively impact productivity and profitability.
Her goal is to have company employees learn to use their limited time more productively, to have a sense of accomplishment, and to add to a healthy work environment.
Clients say that Joanne’s easy to understand approach help them put their new-found skills into immediate action for immediate results.
Her experience working in industries such as finance, manufacturing, publishing, educational television, and trade associations enabled her the opportunity to develop workflow processes and streamline day-to-day procedures, saving companies time and money.
In corporations, teams can get stuck working the same way with the same unsatisifying results. Joanne shows corporate workers how to identify their "sticky" points and then moves them forward to work more smoothly on their own, and more cohesively as a team.
Establishing relationships with small business owners, Joanne saw a need to help these self-starters thrive. She shows them that despite the numerous hats they wear, becoming more efficient in how they work in their offices can lead them down the road to success.
Time is a precious resource best not wasted. Because of her time management skills, Joanne actually has time to spend on things she likes to do. Making the most out of Colorado, she enjoys hiking and backpacking in the mountains, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and running crazy obstacle course races. And with a drop-zone so close, you might even find her hanging out with other skydivers.
