Fiona speaks on a range of topics, including:
- Human-technology interaction: The impacts of technology on human cognition and communication
Technology can alter the neurophysiology of how humans shape each other during face-to-face interaction. This affects humans in various ways which can be both good and bad. Understanding this allows us to use technology as a true enabler, and choose when it is not the best solution.
- Leading flourishing, adaptive organisations
The neural duet between brains can happen individually and at scale. In organisations, it facilitates trust, collaboration, communication, shared values and complex problem solving, resulting in an adaptive and flourishing organisation.
- Future proofing in emerging environments
Change is by nature full of weak signals. The ability to register and read this information and to understand how it will shape change, enables leaders to influence, tend and steer the organisation in an adaptive direction, and build the capability to act dynamically in the emerging environment.
- Cognition of resilience
Resilient organisations have candid, empathic leaders who are pragmatic optimists. These leaders have the ability to craft a culture of high trust, shared values, collaboration and creative problem solving. This allows everyone to navigate ambiguous conditions.
- Partnering with AI for human centric future: quality vs quantity choices and partnerships
Both humans and technology bring their own unique capabilities to a situation and both can be transformative if used appropriately. Understanding these unique strengths, and how and when to combine them allows us to gain exceptional results.
- Building a human centric technologized healthcare future
Medicine is being constantly transformed by amazing new technology from nanobots to telehealth. Human interaction and empathy increases healing, trust, hope, patient compliance and even medical decision making. Balancing the use of tech with human interaction is the key.
