New year – special venue – new speakers!

What would it look like for you to thrive at work (and not just survive) in 2020? Join us for a ShfWIT new year special where we will explore together how to flourish in the tech sector, prioritise wellbeing and level-up through training.

There will be space to reflect on your own goals for the year and opportunity to ask a panel of experts your work, wellbeing and training related questions e.g.

  • How do I ask for a raise?

  • How do I achieve that illusive work-life balance?

  • I’d like to get into programming – where should I start?

 And as always there will be plenty of time for mingling and nibbles…

 All welcome.

5:30 – 6:00 – Nibbles and mingling

6:00 – 7:00 – Panel discussion and Q & A – Thriving in Tech in 2020

7:00 – 7: 15 – Space for reflection and goal setting

7:45 – 8:00 – Break out areas and more mingling
