Talks and Events
If you work with digital technology to get your work done, it is quite likely you have taken on working habits, availability expectations and biases.
The untethering of digital technology from a fixed landline has meant that travel around with the internet in our pocket and our work at our fingertips – always on, always available.
These talks aim to shine a light on the behaviour and psychology around our workplace digital technology use, so we can take back control of, and build a better work-home-play balance into our lives.
