Biography

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.
