Technology lets us be always connected, workplaces have fewer people to do more work, the speed of information and global reach demands 24/7 responsiveness, and things keep changing faster that we can keep up. Come join us and get some new perspectives on what it takes to stay sane in this “new normal.” Breakfast and a speaker don’t usually change your life, but who knows? Don’t miss the chance!
