Digital Detox is not the Long-Term Answer to the Effects of Digital Distractions and Addiction

I’ve known Monty Hamilton for the better part of 10 years. He was the architect of one of my favorite conferences, The Australian Digital Summit in Sydney and Melbourne. He also currently advises and hosts the incredible Pivot conference in Geelong. I’ve had the privilege of keynoting both.
