Working in a team has changed considerably over the last year. We've been forced to adapt and explore new ways of working in order to face the difficult situation head on. However, these challenging times can and do have an impact on our mental health. For our May meetup, we have Jon McNestrie joining us who is set to discuss how leadership has evolved in order to help teams move forward in a remote world, support mental health and what we can expect for the future. NE:Tech will be hosted online via the attached Zoom link. Although we would like to return to face-to-face meetups, the health and safety of our members is a top priority. We are paying close attention to the government guidelines and will return to physical meetups when it is safe and sensible to do so.

Do leaders dream of mental well-being?


Delivery & Process

Over the last year leading teams and indeed being part of them has been a little different. We'll look at how leaders can help teams to cope with difficult times? We'll explore how the role of leaders & managers in tech teams has changed in a remote world & consider the mental health continuum & really looking after people. Let's also have a little peak into what might come next as we start to get back together in the real world.
