Guest Anna Andersone has graduated from SSE Riga in 2002. In this podcast with Anna we look beyond the coronavirus to the fundamental role physical contact between human beings plays in our mental and bodily health, and how a simple hug can have a range of benefits.
As a consultant and a leader, she has worked in different projects encouraging women to join the tech field. She is co-founder of FROONT, a design tech startup that provides a responsive web design tool for designers, and CEO of Riga TechGirls. In addition she is founder of the company "Be-with" which mission is to bring people closer together by providing space and opportunities for physical touches.
This podcast was recorded earlier this year just before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
