Accessibility in the 21st Century: Do’s and Don’ts!
There are often many expectations and assumptions about being accessible at this time. With this conference, your audience will receive tips and tricks for optimal digital comfort in professional life.

Etiquette in digital work
How do we deal with digital communication? Sometimes we forget that this is communication between people and not between machines. What guidelines and agreements can ensure that digital communication is also effective? What “label” can we use to work digitally?

Smarter than your smartphone
your smartphone rings, seeks constant attention and is a seductive seducer for distraction. How is this relationship with your smartphone and how can we silence its seduction techniques? (Min. 8 p, max 16 participants, € 1000 excluding VAT)


During the session “Smarter than your smartphone” we were gently confronted with our own digital time usage. The participants effectively made their smartphone tingle poorer and each went to work to tackle their temptation to distract themselves! Thanks to Christine my smartphone “shouts” much less, Ihave less “online” time loss, more time for the things that give me fulfilment and I enjoy the small and big things online and off-line even more. Thanks Christine!

I followed this digital detox trajectory with some reserve. Still it became a reality check. Although I was (and still am) convinced that I was not addicted, it offered me a lens to analyze my own smartphone behavior, and still detect some very useful working points. Christine is experience expert and you can feel that, also in her book “Start to Digital Detox”, which is very accessible and not pedantic.
