Congratulations. You've survived Nancy's keynote!

Hey, playful human. What a joy to have you at my workshop or keynote. As promised, here is some more background information and links about timing, deep work, chronotypes and hormones. 

In any case, thank you for your energy and playful presence. Please feel free to get in touch if you'd like me to come play with your team or organisation. Or, sign up for my Random Rambles below - a (more or less) weekly newsletter full of playfulness. 

But above all: keep on playing. 

PS. Did you really, really, truly enjoy my keynote or workshop? Then I have a question for you.

Recommended reading:

This keynote was based on my (professional) experience in combination with these three excellent books:

Why is it important to have more diversity in tech?

If this is a real question to you, with all due respect, please please please do educate yourself. This one hits pretty close to home for me; tech is a world that's close to my heart.


We have some serious problems on our hands:

The demand for ICT professionals in Europe far outstrips the current supply. The European Commission estimates a shortfall of up to 11 million ICT specialists by 2030 (European Commission, 2023).

One of the solutions to this problem is trying to get rid of mono cultures within our tech companies. How? Read on!

Gender diversity in tech is being talked about, but women are still underrepresented, underpaid, and often discriminated against in the tech industry. A change is needed!

What did you think?

Did you really enjoy my workshop or keynote? Did it get you thinking or make changes in the way you work day-to-day? And do you have five minutes to spare? Then I'd be really honoured if you'd leave a quick recommendation on my LinkedIn profile.

 

Why? There's nothing the LinkedIn algorithm gods like more than a juicy recommendation. And hopefully, this helps more people to find out about me and my work, and discover the power of play for themselves. More people playing = a better world all around. 

Four tips for betting timings:

TIP one

Respect differences.
