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.
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.
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.
We’re looking for 1-3 corporate sponsors for our conference in May – companies with a strong focus on happiness at work who would like to be associated with the best damn conference on workplace happiness anywhere in the world :)
Reach out if you know a company that fits the bill.
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!”
