This Funzing Experience:

Want to feed your brain and your stomach? Join us for a dining experience like no other at one of our unique Dim Sum Talks, where you can delve into a fascinating subject whilst sampling a selection of Ping Pong's finest dim sum.

In this entertaining and insightful talk TEDx speaker, Huffington Post blogger, book author and owner of a digital detox agency Consciously Digital Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina explores, how internet is changing our brain. Quoting the latest neuroscience research, she explains how digital distractions are preventing us from good decision making and innovative thinking, and will give practical tips on how to coach your brain to stay focused in the age of digital distractions.

Your brain online: how to stay productive and focused in the age of distraction

Does it happen to you to go check your email or social media just for a second, and then two hours later find yourself mindlessly clicking on yet another cat video? How about reading something online, and then immediately forgetting what it was about? You are not alone.

Our brain is undergoing a massive transformation as a result of internet penetration. Since the beginning of this century, our attention span, or ability to concentrate on something, has become shorter than that of a goldfish. We don’t try to remember things anymore, as we can google them at any point. We are constantly trying to catch up with new information.

Venue: Ping Pong Dim Sum, Covent Garden

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.

Funzing Talks is a new concept which aims to take the well known 'Tedx' style talks, and make them more accessible. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire and re-invent your after work beers.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a Funzing Talks @ Night event makes the perfect after work mid-week activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
