This is an update from me to say that I’ve decided to close off my diary for any new talks (in-person or virtual) unless they are paid opportunities between now and 14 April 2023. This is because as well as my day job I will be focusing on delivering International Imposter Syndrome Awareness Day on 13 April and working on the new monthly event that I’ll be launching on the back of what was #InfosecLunchHour in my spare time.
I’ve got the following talks/events to do between now and 14 April though:
Wednesday 22 February 2023, 10.15am – Virtual Deskflix event, Security in the Cloud: Fostering Greater Collaboration in Cloud Security to Combat the Growing Cyber Threat.
Wednesday 22 February 2023, 12.00pm – Virtual Thrive Mental Health and Neurodiversity Webinar, The Importance of Neuro-inclusion for Better Mental Health.
Monday 27 February 2023, 12.30pm, Virtual ISACA Mental Health Webinar – Avoiding Overload: Managing Stress and Burnout in Cyber Security (for ISACA members only)
Tuesday 28 March 2023, FundApps In-Person event in London, speaking slot TBA.
Tuesday 4 and Wednesday 5 April – In-Person event, UK Cyber Week London – speaking on 5 April at 3.30pm: Stronger Together: Fostering Greater Collaboration in the Cyber Security Industry to Combat the Growing Cyber Threat.
I am conscious about spreading myself too thinly and always have regular schedule/diary reviews to make sure I’m not overloaded and risk a period of burnout. My mental health and not doing too much is so important to me, I’ve had burnout a few times and it is not at all fun.
Please do feel free to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org with any speaking opportunities post 14 April, both virtual and in-person, and I will happily consider them.
