Can you imagine life without the internet or social media? Johan van Houten can! He went offline for an entire year. Back to a landline telephone, finding your way without Google Maps, postcards instead of apps, and flirting face to face in a café.

The challenging times of COVID-19 forces us to spend even more time online. It’s a blessing and a curse at the same time. Don’t you wish you could take back control of your life that is ruled by e-mails, phones, and social media?

In this workshop tonight, Johan van Houten will share the benefits of spending time offline and gives practical tips on how to achieve a healthy digital balance, step by step. Sign up here.

And there is more: Check out the full day program below.
