Attention Economy – develop power focus in a digitally distracted world!

About the event

Understand why we need more than simple willpower to maintain attention in the modern world.

Modern technology brought us many blessings, but it is also fraught with some risks. As we become more dependent on the use of our devices, we find that dealing with distractions such as notifications, maintaining our focus and concentration is becoming increasingly hard. Our attention spans, the ability to think deeply and maintain focus became victims of the battle for our attention waged by the tech companies and advertising giants. During the session we will expose the chasm the data-rich tech industry is creating at the cost of focus-deprived individuals.

Join the interactive workshop by Female Ventures led by professional coach Monika Matuszewska from LaMatu and gain deeper awareness into where your attention goes. Practice asking good questions that will help you make healthy choices both in the workplace and your daily life. This session will touch upon current trends such as social media detox and dopamine fasting and examine the possible impact on our mental health. Please bring with you to the event an open mind, friendly attitude, curiosity and positive energy.

Our speaker will be Monika Matuszewska, the founder of the coaching practice LaMatu, which offers a variety of individual coaching services, as well as workshops and keynotes.

She is passionate about the topic of attention economy and maintaining focus in the world full of distractions.

The event will be at TheHagueTech, a technology community in the heart of The Hague region, where creative talent, businesses, government, and research institutions work together. THT’s aim is to fire up your tech ideas that will change society.
