This Funzing Experience:

Can being selfish have an up-side? Could it have a positive affect on our general wellbeing? Are selfless acts every truly selfless? Join Social Media Influencer and Communications Expert Toni Tone for an insightful talk; where we find out if we can improve our lives by caring less about others.

Selfishness often has negative connotations, but is it really as bad as everyone thinks? The word selfish is defined as “being concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself: seeking or concentrating on one's own well-being without regard for others”. Surely, focusing solely on yourself sometimes isn’t always a bad thing?

Communications Manager and Social Media Influencer Toni Tone will discuss the benefits of both selfishness and selflessness. This will include exploring the concept of self-love and why being happy may require a little selfishness sometimes. You will learn how certain types of selfishness can be essential to maintaining fulfilling and healthy relationships and review whether selfless acts can ever be truly selfless at all.

Toni is best known for holding engaging and thought provoking social media discussions which often seek to explore human relationships. Her online activity has her published in The Independent, Huffington Post, Mail Online, Cosmopolitan, Metro and much more.

Venue: BBB, Shoreditch

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
