Hand pulling burnt toast out of a toast

Wednesday, September 20, 2023


Our “From Burnout to Balance” breakfast event is going to be an enlightening morning where we delve into two vital aspects of well-being. As women, we wear many hats - we are professionals, mothers, partners, and more. It is this dance of roles that showcases our adaptability, but also puts us at a greater risk of burnout. In addition, the boundaries between work and personal life are becoming increasingly blurred.

Our incredible speakers will guide you on a journey towards achieving equilibrium in the fast-paced world of technology, looking at actionable strategies to harmonise professional ambitions with self-care.

Brigette McGregor-Macdonald will speak to discovering the power of mindfulness and provide key techniques that empower you to stay centred, enhance focus, and build resilience against burnout.
Maya Lee will dive into the critical connection between nutrition, health and stress management, providing insights into putting your health first for peak performance, optimising energy levels and warding off burnout. It is time to invest in your well-being, embrace balance, and unlock your full potential in both your professional and personal life.

Join us as we change the narrative from ‘Burnout’ to ‘Balance’.
