Christina Bengtsson Speaker Biography


Christina Bengtsson is an author, international speaker, military officer, and precision shooting World Champion. With her exceptional background, international reach, and acclaimed book “The Art of Focus – 10.9” and the successful TEDx talk watched by 1M people, Christina is considered a global thought leader on the topic of focus. In different parts of the world, she has, among other things, been referred to as the Focus Icon, the Focus Avatar, and the Focus Goddess.

"In the pursuit of success, focus should be placed on who we are and what we have instead of chasing after what we are not and do not have."

Modern society is weakened by a lack of focus, and it’s costing us dearly. Christina Bengtsson has the tools to help us regain command of this crucial ability in both the short and long-term to live a purposeful and balanced life.

Spending her professional career exploring focus – an essential skill in today’s society with its intensive demands on performance – and its application to both our professional and personal lives.

“I came from a world where focus was elevated as a part of the work and was respected as a necessary ability, and I stepped into a world where short-term attitudes, quick-fixes, fragmentation, attention addiction and time poverty, were the norm. Focus, this vital skill, needs to be given more dedication, both within our self and in all of society”.

She was the first woman as head of the European Office, CISM, she is trained at the US Army Marksmanship Unit and has been recognized with the Swedish Supreme Commander’s coin twice. She has lectured to audiences worldwide and to major corporations and is a part of the faculty for the Stockholm School of Economics Executive International Program.

Christina gives tangible advice, based on more than 20,000 hours of training, on how to identify and let go of distracting thoughts and how to stay sharp, and shares her captivating story of literary going from zero to hero by using the power of focus.

Her initiative Reclaim Focus™ is exceptionally useful teaching on one of today's most important topics to engender sustainable change with high results and quality built on man´s own cognitive potential.

"When days are ruled by quick fixes that fail to serve one´s higher purpose, we must learn the ability to resist impulses, exercise self-discipline and maintain cognitive control, and to understand how presence, attentiveness and empathy increase our chances for success. Focus is the only trustworthy medicine against both individual and societal fragmentation”.

World Leader FOCUS
The global workforce, the future of work, and the world economy will face challenges—and opportunities—that will require both individual and united focus.

To meet these challenges, we need to Reclaim Focus™ and to protect humans’ cognitive potential. Focus is the only trustworthy medicine against both individual and societal fragmentation.
A sustainable world includes sustainable people with a healthy attitude towards their fellow human beings, towards society, and towards our future.

Team Leadership FOCUS
A successful team begins at the top. As a leader in your organization, you’re responsible for taking your team from a collective blur to a united focus. When you encourage employees to stretch their creativity, connect to their own core values and complete projects with quality, you’ll discover a wealth of innovation. You’ll also discover what’s been irrelevant all along. Learn how a focused mindset, free to explore, can guide your team towards the bigger picture with less stress and worry.

World Champion FOCUS
Being the best –– in sports or business –– requires five key skills you can master with a focused mindset. As a world champion in your arena, you must learn to handle pressure like a pro, appreciate small wins, control your emotions, relish failure, and always remain humble. Sound impossible? You’re probably closer than you think. As you strengthen your inner core and stay true to your deepest values, you’ll lead your team to victory with clarity and purpose.

Workplace FOCUS
Between the steady stream of emails and looming deadlines, it’s no surprise that our minds wander. Add to the mix a pro-multitasking mindset, and you’ve got the perfect storm for decreased productivity and quality. Believe it or not, the best way to develop a focused mindset at work is to embrace empathy. Being fully present with colleagues, tuning into facial expressions and body language, allows distractions to fade away. Best of all, a workplace built on empathy helps everyone focus on long-term success, which results in greater returns.
