This Funzing Experience:

Consciously Digital: Manage your phone, or it will manage you

How many times per day do you check your smartphone?

How many of these times do you actually need to go online?

If you often complain that you don’t have time to do things you’d love to, here’s where your time is going.

You might have not noticed it yet, but we are already living in the Matrix, claims former senior digital marketer, TEDxspeaker, Huffington Post blogger, book author and owner of Consciously Digital Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina.

Tech companies convince us that we’re powerless without gadgets, and create them so that we come back to them again and again in order to make money. Our attention and consciousness is what fuels the tech industry. Steve Jobs did not allow his children to use iPads, and many senior tech executives are very low-tech in the private life, for a reason. The real cost of allowing your gadgets to dictate our agenda and behaviour is your depleted ability to take decisions, stay focused, think clearly and creatively, sleep well, and ultimately, manage your own free time and choices.

In this insightful talk Anastasia will explain, how tech companies purposefully create devices and software that make us use it over and over again, and suggest practical tips of how to take control over your tech without giving it up. Her talk combines the latest neuroscience research, exercises from positive psychology with insights into tech industry.

Venue: Battersea Barge, Vauxhall

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

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!
