Mia's Talk

Design, or be designed

Tuesday, 12 March — 09:30

So many of our tools and beliefs shape the way we work. Contemporary open office plans paired with a plethora of collaboration and communication tools have created new standards for work speed and interaction frequency. We bounce between Slack, Asana, InVision, daily standups, email, and more, playing notification what-a-mole to be good team players. And it all feels urgent in the pressure cooker of tech.

We'll talk about how to more consciously design your time to be your most creative, resilient self.
