Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina is an internationally acclaimed thought leader, author and speaker (twice TEDx) on the topics of digital wellbeing and mental health in the digital age. Her message goes far beyond reducing the screen time.

Anastasia explores, how technology usage affects our ability to stay focused, build trust online, and the risks of outsourcing our cognitive and physical abilities to tech. Emphasizing the need to enhance human qualities, she advocates understanding how technology can support, not hinder, our wellbeing in the AI age.

Anastasia’s message is rooted in her personal story, as in 2015 she decided to leave her senior dream job in digital marketing and give up her smartphone, when she realized its negative impact on her creativity and mental health. This personal digital pause of 1.5 years led her to establish Consciously Digital, now an international network of 130+ digital wellbeing coaches. She directs the world’s first certification program in digital wellbeing recognized by two major coaching associations, ICF and NBHWC, preparing digital wellbeing champions at workplaces. She also serves as a mentor on ethical tech and founder’s mental health programs. Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina pioneered the evidence-based approach to measuring digital wellbeing in the workplace and explores the link between cybersecurity and digital wellbeing.

Anastasia presented her ideas at over 1000 global conferences, including Mobile World Congress (Barcelona), Sync Digital Wellbeing Summit (Saudi Arabia), National Wellness Conference (USA), CIPD Festival of Work (UK), HR Vision (Amsterdam) etc. Her clients include major tech companies, financial institutions, consumer brands, governments, and educational organizations that seek to build a digital culture that supports employees’ focus, creativity, and well-being in the digital age and cultivates trust in hybrid and remote teams.

She combines neuroscience research, case studies, and practical advice in her speeches, demonstrating how technology usage patterns impact future business outcomes. Offering keynotes, workshops, and certification program, she assists companies in creating a future-ready work culture where humans thrive authentically, rather than trying to behave like second-class machines.

Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina holds a PhD from Moscow State Lomonosov University, an MBA from SDA Bocconi and NYU Stern School of Business, speaks 5 languages, and is based between London, UK and Barcelona, Spain.

Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina addresses the problems that affect all of us in the digital age, no matter the background or location – the rapid dilution of our human qualities in the digital age, and its impact on our wellbeing. In her work, Anastasia shows how the way we use technology profoundly impacts our experience of being human – from losing the ability to stay focused and build trust in the online society, to the erosion of privacy and outsourcing cognitive abilities to AI.

In her speeches, she combines the latest neuroscience research with case studies from her own practice and the one of over 130 coaches from Consciously Digital network, explaining complex concepts in an entertaining and understandable way. Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina possesses a unique talent for connecting the dots and demonstrating how your employees’ current technology usage impacts your business in the future. She delivers keynotes, workshops, and trains digital wellbeing champions within organizations to help create the culture ready for the future of work.

Are women more at risk online?

The Internet has greatly democratized our lives, but does it bring real gender equality, or deepens the existing inequalities? Online environment still represents psychological and professional challenges for women.

The research conducted by Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina on digital wellbeing at work shows that women have a lower digital wellbeing score than men. When working remotely, women often are those who take fewer breaks, experience more digital stress and have to manage more distractions. They get less chance to contribute in online meetings. While remote work allows them flexibility, it also often means that they are less promoted compared to male counterparts. Young girls are more likely to be concerned about their body images as a result of social media usage. Women of all ages are more likely to be targets of online abuse.

In this talk Dr Anastasia Dedyukhina discusses, why the existing social inequalities get amplified in the online space. She suggests, how to make online environment and remote work more friendly and safe for women, and how women can best take care of their digital wellbeing. The talk mainly focuses on the work life of women, but also discusses psychological safety.
