How to get ahead in digital (without burning out)

Brought to you by Techdept

Are you busy "crushing it" in digital? But the curse of the digital world - and indeed the modern world - is overwhelm. We have an abundance of opportunity, which is growing exponentially. But we are analogue creatures.
Do you wish you could find some more balance before you burnout?

Join Techdept's co-founder & CEO in a discussion about "how to get ahead without burning out".

Dan has been building businesses in Sheffield since 2001, and has the battle scars to show for it. He’s also creator and co-founder of Getahead, a not-for-profit initiative which plans to help a billion people ‘get ahead without burning out’ by 2043. Getahead launched in 2018 with a 24 hour festival (& 1000 attendees) as an official "Top 10" event during London Tech Week. It is back in London on Friday June 14th this year. Get chance to learn from Dan's experiences, so you can avoid burnout, or better deal with it.
