Dan Nixon is a writer and consultant with expertise in the broad theme of “attention and society”. His work centres around how our capacities of attention and awareness matter in a range of social, economic and philosophical debates. Dan has recently written about human-digital relations, ‘mindful’ economics, attention vis-à-vis ego, and sustainability issues. Dan previously worked for over ten years at the Bank of England and has a strong academic background in philosophy, economics and mindfulness.
Together, Florian and Dan will speak about the economic, societal and emotional impact of our ‘Attention Economy’ – and what we can do to rebel.
This 1.5 hr long networking session will be facilitated by Andrew McNeill (MI Workplace Policy Lead) and will be in the format of panel debate and breakout rooms.
This webinar is open to Mindful Workplace Community Members only.
