Synopsis: Katrina will talk about ‘Managing time as an asset’. The talk will explore aspects of time management in the context of health and wellbeing, looking at personal time management in a world where the boundaries between work and leisure time are becoming increasingly blurred. During the pandemic, working remotely is causing individuals and organisations to think about how and where different types of work are done. Katrina will talk about how we reflect on the patterns in our daily lives and the importance of pacing and prioritisation.
