A Day in The Life: TechWomen and Mentemia's Dil Khosa

"Dil Khosa is working on multiple projects in the tech ecosystem, from operations & people at Mentemia, a mental wellness tech organisation, to being a NZ Ambassador for StartupGenome. She's also an advisor to NarrativeMuse, the co-chair of Tech Women NZ and the former operations director of Parrot Analytics. She recently restructured her life after experiencing burn-out triggered by her busy executive career and is leading a much more balanced life these days. She shares the key learnings she's gleaned after readjusting her work and lifestyle, her daily rituals and how she reached an improved, healthier outlook on life.
