Empathy, connection and community are fundamental to our sense of wellbeing and purpose. And yet always-on digital connectivity can leave us feeling – paradoxically – more disconnected than ever.

How can we bring more authentic human connection to our digital lives?

Join our panel of inspiring speakers as we explore three approaches for reconnecting with ourselves and others in life and work:

Personal – Information overwhelm, FOMO, anxiety, comparison and an overload of choice – how can we come back to our authentic selves online? Wellness expert Cari Merriam leads us in understanding who we are and how we create our identification of Self online.

Social-Cultural – How many people can we really maintain relationships with online? How many is too many? Social media angel Katie Brockhurst explains how we can increase the quality of our digital connections.

Professional – How can we retain a sense of connection, empathy and belonging when working remotely and with dispersed teams? Digital transformation consultant Sofia Trojanowska on how we can thrive privately and professionally in the digital world.
