9.20am  WHAT TECHNOLOGY IS DOING TO PEOPLE – AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT

Lauren Parsons Wellbeing Specialist, speaker, coach and consultant.

Technology affects the way that we think, move, work and play. The current pandemic has created upheaval for team members who have been thrust into working remotely.

Even before covid-19, social media and technology have taken their toll on people’s wellbeing as people remain constantly connected, yet socially disconnected, overloaded with information and easily distracted.

If you want to maintain a close-knit team, who are engaged, connected and performing at their peak - this is the session for you.

You'll discover:

  • The serious negative impacts of technology on relationships, wellbeing and productivity
  • Why technology is a two-edge sword and how to wield it effectively
  • How to wrangle technology, avoid information overload and regain control
  • Practical ways to ensure your team stay resilient, connected and engaged during challenging times
