Startup Digest Dublin
Startup Digest Dublin
The personalized insider newsletter for all things startup in Dublin.
Hi everyone,
Over the weekend, Dr John Sharry said, “Now as we face into the second wave of the virus, the public mood is more fractious, jaded and fatigued. We are facing into a challenging winter with no end in sight. It is easier to experience a sense of camaraderie queuing outside the supermarket in the summer than during a cold, dark wet winter’s evening.” Read his Irish Times article on ’How to fight the psychological fatigue of Covid-19’s second wave’.

Also, Laya Healthcare have a free webinar series called ‘Wellbeing Live’ and it’s guest this Wednesday the 30th @1pm is Tech Correspondent, Jessica Kelly. You’ll get no nonsense advice on all things tech and working from home. Register [HERE]
