You don't need us to tell you that we're more connected than ever and rely on technology every day.

what are people saying

We truly believe in the benefits of techtimeout, but don’t just take our word for it.

Andy Lawrence

"The concept of being addicted to technology isn't something I'd particularly thought about previously. We all use tech in the office and we have innovated utilising technology across the business which has pushed us ahead of the curve for years. However techtimeout has given us a new appreciation of some of the negative impacts of technologies and how we can adapt our practices to be more mindful of these adverse effects."

"The concept of techtimeout and the support around it has helped my team enjoy a healthier relationship with technology. In particular I’ve found our meetings are now more focused and more productive"

Neil Lloyd

Managing Director, FBC Manby Bowdler

Lisa Williams

"We spend too much time living through technology rather than connecting in real life. It's lazy and it distracts you from fully experiencing what is happening in that moment. And none of that is good for our mental health."
