Testimonials for Dr Fiona Kerr

I have been very active on social media making sure that the entire company knows how impactful the breakfast and particularly Fiona’s presentation was on the psychology of patient adherence to treatment, and how to change their habits, using empathy, touch and AI. I think I counted at least 6 clinicians that came up to Fiona after the breakfast to ask further questions or ask for your card.

Firstly, can I again say a very sincere and hearty thank you for your contribution to the CBA LBB conference on Monday. You were incredibly well received - the standout - so well done and, again, many thanks. I'm sure the team would be thrilled to engage you again. I hope you had a pleasant flight back, delightful to work with you, you really brought a different focus to a banking conference and in the process provoked some great insights and conversations (oh, and in passing, you ruthlessly crushed your opponent in the debate :-)) Many thanks, Tim

Dr Fiona Kerr's Biography

Dr Fiona Kerr is an advisor to companies in robotics, technology, health/medicine, ageing, AI steerage and ethical AI in defence, holds 3 board positions and 3 honorary academic positions globally

Dr Fiona Kerr is a thought leader in human connectivity and synchronization, partnering with technology and leading future ready, resilient organizations.

Fiona is Founder of The NeuroTech Institute, which researches and consults globally on future proofing organisations and sectors to ensure the transformative power of technology is combined with the unique attributes of humans to enable the best outcomes. This includes how leaders build better brains; the cognition of resilience; the neurophysiology of human interaction and how to partner effectively with Artificial Intelligence.

Fiona advises the robotics industry, health, aging and education sectors, Finland's national AI program, and Defence (USA and Australia).

Speaking Topics Include

Human-technology interaction: The impacts of technology on human cognition and communication

The neurophysiology of how humans shape each other during face-to-face interaction is altered by the use of technology in various ways, 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 even complex problem solving, resulting in an adaptive, resilient 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, crafting a culture of high trust, shared values, collaboration and creative problem solving that allows everyone to navigate ambiguous conditions (complex thinkers).

 

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, so balancing the use of tech with human interaction is the key.
