  • Jessica Lyschik: Warum Introversion nichts schlimmes ist

    WordCamp Nuremberg 2016Speaker: Jessica Lyschik

    April 19, 2016 — Bestimmt kennt jeder so einen „stillen“ Menschen. Sie sind gerne alleine, Small Talk funktioniert nur bedingt und Partylöwen sind sie mal so gar nicht. In Meetings sind sie unscheinbare Teilnehmer, die selten das Wort ergreifen – meistens dann, wenn sie dazu aufgefordert werden.

  • Cory Miller: Entrepreneurship and My Mental Health

    WordCamp Denver 2015Speaker: Cory Miller

    July 2, 2015 — I’ve been through a divorce, had to fire friends, lived — almost daily — with insecurity no matter how successful we or I have been, felt the guilt of success as well. I talk openly about how I see a mental health counselor and am an advocate for good mental health, especially as an entrepreneur who now leads a team of 23 people. Would talk about some of the strategies outside of having a counselor that I have done/do to maintain good mental stability in this often crazy job.
