Disconnecting with Technology, The Mystery of Digital Burnout Solved

HANCOCK, Michigan, August 7 – Keweenaw Young Professionals (KYP) is hosting Part 3 of their Professional Development Series later this month.

The event, “Disconnecting with Technology: The Mystery of Digital Burnout Solved, presented by Jeremiah Baumann, will take place on Monday, August 21st from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm at the Jutila Center, room 323, in Hancock.

People tend to blame technology for keeping them too “plugged in.” Our way of life has us connected and on-call 24/7.

However, technology itself isn’t to blame. In this session, you’ll learn about tips, tricks, and tools that utilize technology to actually help you disconnect, relax, and escape from that traditional digital burn-out.

Attendees Will
1.) Learn how to identify their “connected touch-points”
2.) Understand how technology can be utilized to help disconnect
3.) Walk away feeling more in control of their digital connection
