Focus…the Most Important Skill of the 21st Century

Monday, 04 September 2023
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (UK time)
    • Sha Hussain, Founder, The Wellness Movement

Come and join award-winning wellbeing consultant and founder of The Wellness Movement, Sha Hussain for a session themed around the skill focus.

Attention is limited – and being able to focus means to consciously decide what you pay attention to. Ironically, nowadays whole industries live on the fact that you do just the opposite. Whether you’re clicking from one YouTube clip to the next, combing through photos of more or less famous people, succumbing to Netflix binges or just reading the news – distractions are everywhere.

From an economic point of view, it matters what you pay attention to as the flow of your attention ultimately determines the flow of your money. Our attention is the real currency of the present age.

Learning to focus isn’t just important because it’s a rare skill, but because it also increases your chances of becoming a successful and happy person. In this workshop we take a closer look at what holds us back from a genetic and societal perspective and reveal how you can sharpen your ability to focus in your personal and professional life.

Sha Hussain is an award-winning wellbeing consultant and has until recently held a volunteer role as a verifier of the London Healthy Workplace Award in association with the Mayor of London's office. He is an experienced wellbeing professional with an in-depth knowledge of health and wellbeing issues at work.

Sha is continually improving his knowledge in the wellness space and has recently completed a course in the Science of Wellbeing at Yale University, Run Coach, and Mental Wellbeing in Sport & Physical Activity with UK Athletics.
