TechTalk@MADWorld Awards Open For Entries

Covid-19 has forced digital adoption even with the most reluctant and boosted interest in digital solutions designed to support employee wellbeing. With home working or at least hybrid working likely to become the new normal, uncertainty continuing to fuel stress and anxiety and an increasing focus on preventative health, this trend seems set to grow.
Building on this, on 21st October, at the 4th annual MADWorld Summit, the TechTalk@MADWorld session will give 10 digital mental, physical, financial, social and/or environmental solution providers the opportunity to present to a panel of experts. The winner will be announced as part of the closing keynote session.

Finding the right fit

For this year’s TechTalk@MADWorld the organisers are encouraging entries from providers of inclusive, innovative digital solutions that support either mental, physical, financial, social and/or environmental wellbeing. They also welcome entries that can demonstrate they dovetail wellbeing with D&I initiatives.
There will be a maximum of 10 TechTalk entrants. Each solution provider taking part in this dynamic session will have three minutes to explain to the panel of judges what is different about their product or service and how it will make a difference to workplace wellbeing – both for employers and employees.
Guidance will be provided on how to prepare an impactful three minute pitch and the criteria that the judges will be using to assess the entries.
