Are you or your team experiencing burnout? Do you feel like everything coming at you is urgent? You are not alone - burnout is the new pandemic. As women navigating diverse roles and responsibilities, it's essential to prioritize our well-being. Our first event of 2024 is dedicated to addressing this issue and equipping you with powerful tools to combat it. At this event we will:
  • Explore self-awareness, mindfulness, and the strategic pause to mitigate burnout.
  • Learn practical strategies to navigate stress and maintain a healthy work-life blend.
  • Connect with like-minded women in a supportive environment, sharing experiences and insights to inspire one another.
  • Enjoy a delicious lunch while building authentic connections that extend beyond the event.
We look forward to seeing you there!
