Updated: Sep 29

This phrase (a neat combo of phone and snubbing) relates to the practice of ignoring another person due to being so engrossed in a mobile device.


The question is, how have the events of the last 16 months affected the way we interact?


❓ Have we become more present in our face-face discussions after months of virtual communication?


❓ How can we communicate with intent and increase engagement and intention by eliminating the distractions and interruptions?


❓ And what about the online equivalent of phubbing? How does it affect the quality of our interactions when a person is multitasking on a group video call, becoming readily distracted by the devices that surround them?


Hosted by our own Simon Scott-Nelson and the GBWWA the table was filled with experts with great insights and advice
