Technology has the power to enhance our lives, to bring us together, enabling us to live with ease and acheive things that were once unimaginable.

It also has the power to take over our lives, taking stress with us wherever we go, leaving us disconnected and susceptible to burnout, anxiety and depression.

Learning the skills to build a healthy relationship with our devices is imperative to sustainable success and optimal wellbeing. In this 60 minute interactive talk we will explore the good, the bad and the ugly side of the digital world.

From the neuroscience and physiological effects of too much screen time to the ways we can use digitial technology to enhance our daily lives we will explore

  • the impact of being connected 24/7 on working memory, cogntive function and physical health
  • how developpers can have a positive impact on the world and their responsibility to do so
  • how we can take control of our own use of technology, ensuring it enhances, rather than hinders our ‘real life’ off screen
  • how we can influece our communities to have a healthier relationship with tech and make balance the status quo

You will leave with the tools to cultivate a more conscious relationship with your smartphone use and ensure a healthier digitially enhanced future for us all.
