Room: Panorama West

As a freelancer, how many times has the thought "Oh, Gosh, I wish I had more time to..." crossed your mind?
Believe me, we all know how it feels! #beentheredonethat
What if I told you that we can speed up, add a bit of fun, or even eliminate some of the "boring" tasks that are part of our daily routine (such as, signing/filling in NDAs) with the aid of technology? And that we can also use softwares and simple "tech tricks" to: deal with health issues after a long day of work (such as sore eyes and/or headaches); create and maintain glossaries; improve our way of researching (even inside our own computers), among many other things. Yes, I am serious - and it is not complicated as you may be thinking.
Let's have a nice and relaxed chat about different approaches to our business issues and find out how the technology that many of us try to avoid can help us find our balance and improve our quality of life in an easy breezy way.
