At this event we explored a highly anticipated topic: burnout. We’ll cover what it is, how to recognise when it’s happening and how to use boundaries and other tools to come through it, avoiding future occurrence.

Emily Alpert - Vodafone: ‘It’s Not Them, It’s Me’
Ever wondered what Siberian Huskies and ‘just saying no’ have in common? For one woman, they were her reason and her strategy for overcoming and preventing burnout.
With all the pressures in and outside of the office to work harder, work longer hours and just prove yourself, burnout seems inevitable. But against the odds, we do actually have the ability to find work-life balance, we just have to create it.
Emily is a UX Designer at Vodafone UK. She recently made the switch to UX Design after completing an immersive course at RED Academy London. In her former life, she campaigned to reduce poverty in Africa and Asia through improved farming, nutrition, and rural development while working for charities such as Oxfam America and The ONE Campaign.
