About talk

In his 2018 SXSW presentation, Brian Solis cast a light on the dark side of digital devices and social media. He explored their impact on day-to-day life, how we learn and work, how we think, how we communicate and also, and the unforeseen, and widespread consequences of technology's impact.

Following his talk, he too found his work affected by his day-to-day digital routines. He set out to solve his problem and share his journey with all of those also struggling with digital distractions. The result is his new book, debuting at SXSW, "Lifescale: How to live a more creative, productive and happy life."

Brian's work aims to answer, what happens in a world where we simply cannot unplug but still need to find balance and thrive as distractions mount? And, what if we don't know we're distracted? How do we see the full impact of the diversions we don't think twice about today?

Lifescale is a journey of self-discovery and growth. It’s about getting back into balance, and mastering our destinies. In this talk, he opens up about his life's journey, the lives of those he studied and the path and ways they learned to grow and move forward.

Together, everyone will see the importance of breaking-free from distractions, increasing focus and productivity, sparking meaningful creativity and unlocking new possibilities.
