Christina Colmer McHugh, Co-founder and Director

Day 1: Lead Through Disruption
10:15-10:30 The Employee Happiness Index: How to Support From Afar

The UK inventor of a wearable emotion tracker has revealed how the device, which began as a solution for her daughter, is set to become a new metric for happiness around the world. Inspired by her seven-year-old’s struggle in school, Christina Colmer McHugh came up with the idea for the Moodbeam bracelet as a way to see her daughter’s wellbeing ‘live’. Launched in 2016, the promise of the device has since found a wide range of new potential users, including adults, and the data collected from these devices is forming an increasingly important metric for people’s emotional state. It was a year ago when the company took its then consumer-focussed wearable to world-renowned tech show CES, just weeks before COVID-19 struck. Soon after, with the monumental shift to home-working, the start-up began receiving interest from companies who were now left in the dark about their workforce’s state of mind. The demand was such that the firm has now created a B2B arm, and is in the process of hiring new salespeople, accelerating app development and increasing manufacture of the wearable.
