Our latest Academy was a BLAST

Our latest Happiness at Work Academy  was a HUGE hit. 24 participants came to Copenhagen from 15 countries to learn all about happiness at work – including some from as far away as Australia, Hong Kong, Colombia, USA and Canada.

We had 4 amazing days with high energy, great conversations and a ton of networking. The group consisted of both internal HR people and leaders looking to make their own workplaces happier as well as external consultants who focus on happiness at work.

It’s a real treat for us to be able to go much more in depth with the topic than we usually have time for in our speeches and workshops – especially with a group that’s already passionate about the topic and practicing it in real life.

The next two Academies will take place on:

  • October 17-20 2017 in Copenhagen Denmark
  • February 13-16 in New York City USA

Here are some of my favorite pics from this Academy:

Another happy client

Woohoo! Yesterday I did a workshop for a team of 100 people from a big Danish pharmaceutical company. Here is what they wrote afterwards:

Thank you for an amazingly inspiring day full of facts and specific suggestions for action. The workshop was incredibly energetic and the exercises were engaging. The participants have only had positive things to say and have already adopted the behaviors.

THAT’S the kind of impact we LOVE to make.

Our First International Conference on Happiness at Work was a HIT!

Last week we had our first ever International Conference about Happiness at Work.

We’ve done 7 previous events but they were all in Danish (mostly). This year we took the plunge and made the whole event international and in English and we’re so glad we did.

200 awesome participants from 19 countries came to Copenhagen to learn from some great experts, researchers and practitioners and by all accounts they had a GREAT time.

In the preliminary participant feedback, 95% give the conference the highest rating.

We’ve already released the first video from the conference – my talk on The Science of Happiness at Work. We’ll be releasing more talks over the next weeks – follow this blog or subscribe to our newsletter if you don’t want to miss them.

Using the Science of Happiness to Create Happier and More Successful Companies

Happy workplaces are more profitable and innovative, attract the best employees and have lower absenteeism and employee turnover rates. Simply put, happy companies make more money.

But how do you create a happy workplace? Many companies try and fail because they focus on the wrong things.

Some of the best answers are found in the happiness science – a fascinating field with research going on all over the world.

In this talk from our 2017 International Conference on Happiness at Work I reveal the 5 most important findings from Positive Psychology and how they apply in the workplace.

We’ll be releasing more talks from the conference soon. Subscribe to our newsletter, if you don’t want to miss them.

What a day. What a lovely day.

Our first international conference on happiness at work is done and WHAT a day. 200 participants from 19 countries met in Copenhagen for a day full of talks by experts and representatives from some of the world’s happiest workplaces.

We will start releasing the videos from the day soon, but here’s a short video with some of our favorite photos from the day, all taken by our amazing photographer Gareth Garvey.

Is your company’s purpose this clear and inspiring?

Last month I gave a keynote at Danish pharmaceutical company Xellia. While waiting in their lobby, I noticed the sign above, carrying probably the simplest and most inspiring company purpose I’ve ever seen.

As you may know, one of the biggest current medical crises is the increasing risk of infection by multi-resistant bacteria, that are immune to traditional antibiotics.

Xellia produces an antibiotic that is still effective against multi-resistant bacteria. Their research and products directly saves lives all over the world and we are proud to have them as a client.

After the keynote, they sent us this feedback:

“Your speech clearly showed why happiness at work is so important and helped us focus on it and maintain it in our workplace. You gave our entire team a huge and much-needed boost – thank you!”

Our upcoming international keynotes and workshops

Wow – I cannot believe how many fascinating international events we get invited to speak at.

While most of our speaking gigs are for client companies and therefore limited to only their employees, we also speak at open events.

If you want to see me speak about happiness at work, these are my upcoming international speaking gigs that are open to the public.

And of course – don’t forget our own International Conference on Happiness at Work in Copenhagen on May 18+19.
