Laurie Michel

Speaker and founder of Vivala

Passionnée des chevaux depuis l’enfance, Laurie a débuté sa carrière professionnelle comme cavalière professionnelle de saut d’obstacles. Membre de l’équipe de France junior, elle a participé aux plus belles compétitions en France en Grand Prix nationaux – internationaux et dirigé une écurie de chevaux de sport, élevage et tourisme avant de se former au management de la qualité interne selon les normes ISO 9000 et 9001.

Pendant plusieurs années, elle va prendre en charge les fonctions de Responsable qualité et communication dans l’une des agences d’audit française les plus réputées dans le domaine de la certification de logiciels, marque NF.

En 2014, elle s’envole pour le Québec et va se spécialiser dans le marketing numérique pendant plusieurs années et va développer au bout de plusieurs mois des problèmes d’addiction aux écrans, passant proche d’un épuisement.

Interpellée par les problèmes d’addictions aux écrans qui touchent toutes les générations, ainsi que par son comportement et celui de son entourage face au téléphone cellulaire et aux réseaux sociaux, elle décide d’agir concrètement en créant Vivala en mars 2019.

She is the author of the book Less screens more present moments, un programme d’aide à la déconnexion numérique de 30 jours, pour partager les astuces qui l’ont aidé à instaurer de saines habitudes autour de la technologie et avec les conseils avisés d’une psychologue clinicienne. Elle intervient en entreprise pour sensibiliser les équipes à l’hyperconnectivité et aider les organisations à instaurer de bonnes pratiques autour de la technologie par le biais de conférences, accompagnement et formations.

Elle a outillé plus de 10 856 employés et gestionnaires au cours des 12 derniers mois!

Laurie was a speaker at the WEQ 2022, le plus grand événement numérique francophone d’Amérique du Nord et est chroniqueuse spécialisée dans le bien-être numérique pour divers médias: Henkel Média, Gestion Revue, Jobillico, Carrefour RH…
