This Funzing Experience:
Are you paying attention?

It’s not news to any of us that our collective attention span has waned as the dominance of social media has.........................................................................

But, what if a company paid you for your attention online? Would you agree to that? Attention is a limited resource, and it might just become the new currency, and the new economy.

The cycle of moral panic around screen time, distraction and how the “the internet is ruining us” feels endless – why this is happening is complex and difficult to fully understand.

Meet Scott McArthur and discover how we ended up with such short attention spans, why self awareness is so important in the digital age, and more, including techniques you can use to deploy your attention much more strategically.

Venue: Sway

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 are here to re-invent your evenings, creating an exciting alternative to having a drink in your local pub or bar. Funzing Talks pull together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire your evenings and expand your mind.

Held in a carefully selected range of intimate spaces, Funzing Talks is the ultimate boredom-buster.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives with like-minded, equally curious people. It's time to try something different - you never know where it may take you.
