IoD evening briefing - Working Smarter in an Always Connected World

In the last ten years, many individuals and organisations have become all too familiar with the paradox of the ‘always connected’ world of the smartphone, tablet and laptop.

Technology allows us to be more productive, but it can also serve up endless information and distractions, making us constantly busy and unable to focus on what’s most important in our organisations.

What’s at the root of this always connected habit? And how can we use technology in smarter, more effective ways - maximising the benefits while minimising some of the negative unintended consequences?

Aidan Healy, Co-Founder of specialist consultancy UnPlug, will discuss why leaders have a duty of care to establish a strong digital culture, and will share his insights and experience.


Registration will take place from 17:00 with the briefing beginning at 17:15 sharp, followed by Q&A and refreshments.
