Work-Life Balance


KEYNOTE: Fight for It: How to Take Control and (RE)Design Your Life

Call me an eternal optimist but I know that crafting the life you want is possible.  Now, I know naysayers and skeptics will tell you that work-life balance is little more than a myth.  Others will say work-life is either a fluffy term used to promote yoga and meditation programs or a gateway into get-rich quick schemes.

The truth is finding work-life happiness and balance is not just possible it is often within your grasp. All you need to do are two things: Design it and fight for it.  During this powerful keynote Paul Artale will discuss his life, his emerging research, and more importantly how you can fight for the life you want.  As some one Participants will:
