Episode 6: Intermission: What taking a break can teach us about work, with co-hosts Veronica Collins and Kevan Gilbert
Kevan’s back from paternity leave! Which makes this the perfect episode to talk about breaks: sabbaticals, leaves and disconnections in general. Listen in on a lively conversation between two colleagues about the value of taking time away from work to see both yourself and your work more clearly. Kevan and Veronica draw on their own and each other’s experience to explore the topic of leaves, trust, identity, and what being a human-centred organization is all about.
Domain7’s Facilitation Practice Lead, Kevan brings wisdom from over a decade of experience leading award-winning digital strategies for a wide variety of institutions and businesses. A seasoned and engaging facilitator and speaker who has been with Domain7 since 2010, Kevan has helped shape our collaborative and people-centric culture. He’s studied design thinking and innovation processes at the THNK School of Creative Leadership.
Veronica coordinates and co-creates Domain7's content, exploring themes around digital making and human flourishing. A creative leader with rich experience in brand and storytelling for tech, social purpose, and higher education, Veronica enjoys cultivating a deeper understanding of how contemporary technologies can aid and support healthy human connection and create new spaces for meaning to emerge.
