“Renée Kutner seems to have figured out how to achieve the impossible…organization,” notes Catherine Cattles, 2012 President of the BBA. “We are excited to hear from Renée about how we can utilize her organization and time management strategies to become more effective as business leaders.”
They say you should do what you love. It just so happens that Renée Kutner loves doing something many people find daunting, and even dreadful: organizing. So she founded Peace by Piece Organizing to bring order to chaos, and peace to our otherwise hectic lives.
Ask anyone who’s crossed Renée’s professional path and they’ll tell you no one they know could get so much done with so little on their desk. It became a trademark of sorts — so much so that starting early in her career, years before envisioning the formation of Peace by Piece Organizing, Renée was conducting workshops for peers and supervisors alike on efficient time and project management.
Prior to working as a Professional Organizer, Renée spent almost ten years in advertising and marketing, taking a short break to receive her MBA from UCLA. Despite the allure of photo shoots and TV production, Renée’s favorite part of advertising was actually the organizational challenge of turning mounds of client input into actionable strategies for effective advertising and marketing campaigns. All while maintaining day-to-day project management of hundreds of ad production jobs across multiple clients. Using that unique simultaneous macro and micro perspective, Renée helps clients envision ideal organizational systems that will make their lives easier, and takes all necessary steps to make these ideas a living reality. And she continues to enjoy the creative outlet of designing a new space, not so different from the creative outlet of ad design.
Renée’s organizational skills are also the reason Renée successfully works, raises three small children and volunteers on multiple boards and committees within her community, while continually maintaining a house that looks like she spends all day organizing herself instead of her clients.
Renée is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and the Georgia chapter of NAPO.
