On-Site Speaker (Planned) Jon Binner
Abstract Scope As you get older you realise that whilst life gets faster and faster and more and more technically sophisticated, actually, an awful lot never really changes. People are still the greatest delight – and the biggest pain. However, I think that it is certainly getting harder to build a career. There is so much more competition for every position; expectations have certainly gone up and it is now exceptionally easy to fall into the trap of working vast numbers of hours and having a lousy work-life balance. This talk will draw on my career and I will endeavour to provide some life-lessons that I have learnt from when I have got things right, whether by design or chance, and when I have definitely got things wrong … Hopefully, there will be something in it for everybody.
