Bend YP Expert Lab: Mind Management with Dr. Mary Kelley—November 8

November 8, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Join Bend YP for Mind Management: The Scientific Reasons You Need to Increase Focus and Stop Task Switching with Dr. Mary Kelley
All are welcome to attend!
We all do it… Call it multitasking, task-switching, or just being good old jugglers. We’ve been taught to believe that it’s a superpower or a strength to be a multitasker, but the science shows that it’s actually draining your cognitive resources. We don’t just lose time and productivity. Task switching also causes us to become fore forgetful, less effective, and increases our level of stress. Our world is not set up to support our ability to remain focused, with constant notifications and distractions coming at us from all angles.

This Expert Lab will walk us through the neuroscience, offer a hands-on activity that demonstrates the science in action, and give us the tools we need to set us up for success in developing greater focus and improving well-being.

We’ll hear from Dr. Mary Kelley
Expert Labs are ninety minute conversations with local industry leaders. You’ll gain valuable insights from executives and leaders on how they were able to enrich their careers, expand their opportunities, or as they simply share their industry knowledge. Each session is convened with a Q&A session.

Doors open at 3:00 PM | Discussion from 3:30 – 5:00 PM
