“ Focusing on Success: Doing Your Best When It Matters Most ”


Concentration”, or the ability to focus on what is most important in any situation while ignoring distractions, is vital for successful performance in everyday life (e.g., in business, law, sport).  But how can we learn to concentrate effectively ?

In this TALK, Professor Moran will draw on his research findings and extensive consultancy experience to provide some practical concentration techniques that will help people to do their best when it matters most.
