    Why we all need a Digital Detox

    It's not unusual for technology to leave us feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and struggling to stay focussed. We often feel the need to be always connected, always busy and never seem to have time for the important things like relationships, careers, or even our own health.

    But it doesn't have to be this way

    Digital detox expert Colin Corby will explore the benefits that regular digital detoxing brings using research and simple to implement techniques that will enable you to have a more sustainable relationship with technology and in the process improve your creativity, productivity, and physical and mental health.

    Being human in the Digital Age

    In this thought-provoking talk Colin Corby invites the audience to explore what it is to be human in the digital age and how we can preserve our individual identities and humanity when more and more of our lives will be determined by Artificial Intelligence (AI). Taking inspiration from some of the latest ideas from technology, neuroscience and philosophy, Colin asks some difficult questions about whether we have already passed the tipping point and what steps we can all take now to become more human resilient.

    Is your digital footprint killing the planet?

    The United Nations have said that climate change is the defining crisis of our time and time is running out. The agreements and compromises that governments reached at the COP26, 27 & 28 Climate change conferences, although incredibly important, don’t go far enough. There is now a large scientific consensus that humans are the leading cause of climate change.

    Many people already know that we all need to play our part and consume, waste and emit less. However, you may not have realised that your online digital activities are not as clean as you might have thought and may have serious consequences for the planet too.

    This talk follows the TEDx guidelines and so is less than 18 minutes long.

    Digital wellbeing - Individual coaching

    Your attention is a scarce resource.

    Who we are and who we will become to a large extent depends on what we pay attention to and what we choose to ignore. But for most of us it doesn’t seem like we have much choice at all.

    We live in a distraction economy where almost everything is competing for and demanding our attention. It’s easy for the brain to be overloaded with too many choices, and when this happens, we often make no choice at all and just accept the easiest option.

    Individual coaching sessions designed for executives, professionals, SME business owners and individuals to help you focus on really matters to you.

    Digital Distraction & Productivity

    Would you like to win back an extra 30 minutes a day?

    Dive into the strange world of why we love to be distracted, how the environment and digital habits trigger our behaviour, why being busy is not the same as being productive and how attention management allows you to get more done and with less stress.

    We live in a world where we have constant access to technology 24/7 and the boundaries between work and our personal lives have become blurred. Multiple apps compete for our attention, and algorithms and AI try to anticipate, personalise and influence the choices that we make. Therefore it's no surprise that the cost of so many distractions is the build up of stress and the feelings of constantly being busy.
    But it doesn’t have to be this way.

    This workshop is ideal for organisations with remote and hybrid employees.

    In this workshop participants will be provided with information and insights, and easy to implement practical strategies to improve focus & productivity, and to reduce the cumulative build up of stress.

    Consulting – Why a healthy digital culture matters.

    The pandemic has increased the levels of anxiety, stress and work-related burnout risks worldwide. The more digitally transformed the workplace becomes, the higher the risk of burnouts. While digital transformation at work has many benefits and makes it possible for employees to work remotely and more efficiently, it creates business challenges that impact employee’s productivity, creativity and morale.

    Colin Corby is co-author of the international paper ‘Why a healthy digital culture matters’. He brings his wealth of experience in technology and digital wellbeing to help organisations create a healthier and more successful digital culture.
