Time:
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location
Macquarie University City Campus, Level 24, 123 Pitt Street


Technology engulfs our lives. From the way we communicate, the way we learn, our mobility – technology is all around us. Given all the advantages that using technology has provided us, we’re happy to be able to use it in every aspect of our lives. We have become so attached to using technology, such as our phones, that for the majority of us it’s the first thing we reach for in the morning and the last thing we scroll through at night.

Society’s heavy reliance and dependency on technology today has had collateral consequences. The impact of technology on our mental and physical health can be devastating if we don’t keep ourselves in check. If left unattended, technology-related stress can cause depression, poor sleep, memory loss, decreased concentration, diminished productivity or stomach discomfort.

The Department of Accounting and Corporate Governance at Macquarie University is hosting this interactive workshop to raise awareness of the negative impacts that technology can have on you and those around you; access tools to help you better manage your use of technology and improve your resilience to technology-induced stress.

Participants will also be shown how technology-related stress affects us and what steps can be taken to better cope with the negative technology-induced stress in our lives and harness the power of positive technology-induced stress.

This workshop forms part of the Vivid Sydney program of events, so make sure you register to secure your spot.
