Leadership: Randall Stephenson, chairman and CEO of AT&T Inc. AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) is a modern media company that brings together premium content, direct to consumer relationships, advertising technology and high‐ speed networks to deliver a unique customer experience. AT&T has recorded 34 consecutive years of quarterly dividend growth and is a Fortune 10 company. The recently completed acquisition of Time Warner – now known as WarnerMedia – brings together the four key elements that define a modern media company: • Premium Content: No one does premium content better than the terrific talent at HBO, Turner and Warner Bros. Add in targeted content such as Bleacher Report and Boomerang, and our Otter Media properties, and we have a robust content portfolio that can drive viewer engagement to new levels. • Direct to Consumer (D2C) Relationships: We have nearly 300 million1 D2C relationships across AT&T’s wireless, video and broadband businesses that provide valuable subscriber insights to better inform how we deliver advertising, what content we distribute and how we distribute that content. And we also have an opportunity to significantly grow our D2C streaming services such as HBO NOW and DIRECTV NOW. • Ad‐technology Platform: We’re focused on investing in and growing our new advertising and analytics business, Xandr. That includes our acquisition of the ad‐technology leader AppNexus, which was an important step toward creating a real‐time video advertising marketplace to unlock value for advertisers and publishers. Not only will this platform utilize customer insights from our millions of customer relationships, it will also enhance premium video advertising, with greater relevance and higher yields – potentially with fewer ads. • High‐Speed Networks: The more customers engage with premium content the more access they will need to network bandwidth. And demand will only continue to grow with 4K and virtual reality. That's why we invest heavily in 5G wireless and our fiber network, and plan to be the first to deploy standards‐ based mobile 5G in the U.S. by the end of 2018. As the appetite for premium video consumption continues to grow, our high‐speed gigabit network will be ready to deliver a great experience for our customers … at home, at work, on mobile devices, through augmented and virtual reality or in the car. The combination of these four elements is powerful, creating a virtuous cycle…great content to drive engagement…broad, direct‐to‐consumer distribution…high speed networks to reach more consumers…all fueled by relevant advertising and insightful analytics to improve the overall consumer experience. We are reinventing the way the media and entertainment industry works for consumers, content creators, distributors and advertisers. What is AT&T? AT&T is comprised of four distinct business units: • AT&T Communications provides mobile, broadband, video and other communications services to U.S.‐based consumers and more than 3 million companies – from the smallest business to nearly all the Fortune 1000 – with highly secure, smart solutions. Revenues from these services totaled more than $150 billion in 2017. • WarnerMedia consists of Turner, Home Box Office and Warner Bros. WarnerMedia received 37 Primetime Emmy® Awards, including 23 for HBO, the most awards of any TV network for the 17th straight year. And WarnerMedia won 12 News and Documentary Emmy Awards — 6 wins each for HBO and CNN — a record for CNN. Together, these businesses had revenues of more than $31 billion in 2017. 2 • AT&T Latin America provides mobile services in Mexico to consumers and businesses, plus pay‐TV service across 11 countries in South America and the Caribbean.

The Oxford Dictionary defines Time Management as: time man∙age∙ment NOUN the ability to use one's time effectively or productively, especially at work: "time management is the key to efficient working" ∙ "students may need help in developing time management skills“ Time management is the process of planning and exercising conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency or productivity. It is a juggling act of various demands of study, social life, employment, family, and personal interests and commitments with the finiteness of time. Using time effectively gives the person "choice" on spending/ managing activities at their own time and expediency.[1] [1]Stella Cottrell (2013). The Study Skills Handbook. Palgrave Macmillan. pp. 123+. ISBN 978‐ 1‐137‐28926‐1. Why is Time Management Important? • Allows you to prioritize your activities and make the most of your day; classes, assignments, tests, sleep, eating, work and even some fun • Helps you meet all your objectives on time • Helps you remain organized • Keeps you on track to meet your desired outcome (pass a class, obtain your degree, get a job, etc.) • Helps you from wasting time as time is limited and valuable • Be sure to schedule in sleep and eating times, you need to be nourished and rested to help you stay healthy and energized. Who wants to be “hangry”? • Allows for working on larger projects/assignments over a longer period of time • Allows for flexibility, you may need to change your schedule based on what you have learned over time.
