“We outsource our memory to Google, and are less and less able to concentrate on something for a long time."

Learn how to stay focused in the age of digital distractions – TEDx speaker and author of Homo Distractus, Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina, will look at how the internet is changing our brains, and ultimately influencing our decision making and innovation thinking.

Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina is an author, TEDx speaker, Huffington Post blogger, organiser of mindful tech festival Focus Inside and a former senior digital marketer.

Having spent 12+ years working for global media and internet brands, she ditched her smartphone in the middle of her senior international career in London, when she realised how dependent she had become on the gadget.

Today she acts as a business mentor supporting ethical tech startups, and runs tech-life balance consultancy Consciously Digital, helping companies and individuals be more productive and less stressed in an age of digital distraction.
