The technology that promises

to save us time and optimise our efficiency and output is actually sucking it away - and it’s having a serious effect on employee health and productivity.

Employee wellbeing is a major focus for Australia's leading organisations. To boost morale and foster a positive, healthy culture, employees are being offered great benefits such as health screenings, subsidised gym memberships and flexible work conditions.

But in our digitally-dependant workplaces, what about the impact of technology?

The endless pings and dings of emails, alerts and notifications are sabotaging even the most engaged employees.

And it’s not just in the workplace. Technology has seeped into every aspect of our lives, blurring the lines between work and personal time. We check our phones in bed, accept work calls at the dinner table and send emails at all hours of the day and night.

Digital habits like these are unhealthy and unsustainable and it’s taking a massive toll on both our physical and psychological health and wellbeing and compromising our productivity.

How digitally dependant and distracted are you?


We’re at the point now where we literally can not switch off.
But without devices, most of us simply can’t do our jobs.

So what are you supposed to do?

Want to learn how to tame your tech habits and deal with the endless digital distractions in the workplace?

(Without the need for a ‘digital detox’, or worse - a complete digital amputation!)

Here's How:

  • Digital Health & Productivity Seminars


    Dr Kristy has signature presentations for all employees and executives exploring the impact of technology on our health and productivity. These can be delivered as a 60 minute Lunch and Learn seminar in your workplace (Digital Wellbeing and Digital Distractions). She also offers a tailored 90 minute keynote address for conferences or conventions (Digital Wellbeing & Productivity).




  • Digital Parenting


    This is a presentation designed for employees and executives who are also parents. It can be delivered as a 60 minute Lunch and Learn seminar in your workplace, or as a 90 minute keynote address at a conference or convention. It can be tailored to parents of children of different ages.


  • Taming Your Tech Habits Masterclass


    Dr Kristy’s online program has been carefully designed to support employee’s health and wellbeing in a highly digitised workplace. It offers practical advice and immediately actionable strategies to help tame tech habits and boost productivity. The program can be used as a stand-alone resource, or offered as part of a Corporate Digital Wellbeing Package that includes a Lunch and Learn seminar with Dr Kristy as well as access to this masterclass as a follow-up resource.

  • The Switched on Parent’s Portal


    An online resource created by Dr Kristy for working parents of kids aged 4-16 who want to raise happy healthy kids in the digital age (but don’t have time to be searching for answers on Google, or attending in-person parent seminars). The portal houses a library of quality video resources, masterclasses, live seminar recordings and webinar replays on a range of the most relevant topics and biggest issues related to kids, teens and screens. Parents can access these highly informative videos and digital resources anywhere, anytime to help solve any digital dilemma and can submit questions which Kristy will answer each month via an ‘Ask Dr K’ video.

Dr Kristy has worked with some of the biggest corporations in Australia:



Kristy's session was fabulous and very well received by the group at the Randstad conference. She addressed their work/life balance and the pressures of their roles placed on them to be constantly available online.

Kristy was entertaining and a relatable way of presenting.



All feedback was extremely positive, they felt that while the content was frightening, it was balanced and there were some great tools that they could use to assist. I know directly that at least three people that I have spoken to since, have implemented one or more things that Kristy spoke about already!

A brilliant session! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kristy to any organisation or event that is looking for a knowledgeable, engaging presenter.



There is a huge buzz around the great conversations you led and we are quite sure that these are going to lead to deeper reflections around the effective use of technology.



Thanks again for coming in yesterday and presenting to the company, it was a great presentation.
