Q&A with Tom Dawkins, Kate Clugston and Mikey Leung (founder, Digital Storytellers)Personal sustainability and creating a culture of care are crucial for long-term success. When you’re creating or running a business that does good in the world, chances are your passion is fuelling you to create that positive change. But what happens when the work starts to deplete that early passion? Burnout is all too common among changemakers and social entrepreneurs. This workshop will familiarise you with this dynamic and how to avoid it.
