Humans and Systems Bio
Claire Burge is best known for radical ideas on cloud technologies, the future of email, optimal working environments and how systems impact human behaviour. She is a regular commentator on TV and radio and she is also a regular contributor to productivity blogs. She undertook a very difficult experiment in 2012 to eradicate email from her business entirely. The experiment caught the attention of the world’s media and has gone viral which is understandable because research proves that it is the one place where people are unhappiest and she hit this nerve head on. She is currently working closely with a number of technology start ups to solve this problem and to make the workplace a happier one.
She heads up the international productivity training company: Get Organised in Ireland and has worked with clients such as EY, Johnson and Johnson, Kia, Opel, PWC and KPMG.
Her career started in industrial psychology but very quickly turned to corporate change and turnaround. She brings a unique approach to her work by merging people, finances and the systems that make up the workplace. She has a passion for the bottom line but realises that people cannot be ignored and that systems either inhibit or maximise their performance. Her approach is therefore very integrated.
