Bust Your Busyness  The world we live and work in today is constantly ON, with immediate access to emails, information, 24-hour online shipping and TV streaming services o name but a few. Technology as no off switch, so it relies on our discipline and the example we set for others.

Learning Outcomes: 

1. What is Burnout and How to recognise it
