The Art of Connection

Tuesday, 16th July 2024, 6.30pm

A fireside discussion led by Ellie Turner Coughlin & Maude Hirst, co-founders of Home of Connection with Marine Tanguy, CEO of MTArt Agency & Author of The Visual Detox. The people we surround ourselves with, the content we consume and our own inner dialogue have a huge impact on our mindset, our success and our lives. In this discussion, Marine will share how the imagery we see shapes our wellbeing and will give us tools for visual decluttering and combatting information overload so we can reclaim our focus and peace of mind. We’ll discuss Marine’s journey as a leading entrepreneur and explore the importance of curating our network and external influences, as well as sharing practical tools for enhancing wellbeing and building connection.
