Last week we had our 7th annual conference about happiness at work in Copenhagen and this one may just have been the best one yet.
We had 14 inspiring speakers and 350 engaged participants to help make it a great day and as always, we filmed all the speeches and will be releasing them over the next few weeks. Here’s the first video – David Marquet’s excellent closing speech on how leaders can improve results by giving up control:
We’re arranging the first ever conference in India about happiness at work in November. We have a GREAT lineup of speakers, but we’re looking for more sessions for the two-day program.

The best part about speaking at Lego is the engaged, fun and passionate people you meet. The second best part is the presents they can give you :)
A few weeks ago I spoke in Holland at the awesome Happy People Better Business conference and here’s a 40-second impression of that speech. We’ve always felt that a speech about happiness at work should be happy to be effective and I think the video conveys just that.
Last week I spoke in the UK at the Service Desk Institute conference, this week I’m speaking at Transbank in Chile and next week I’m in Poland at a conference for innovators and startups.
Last year I spoke at the Happy Startup Summer Camp – an awesome event for startups who want to do things differently.
I also did a workshop on happiness at work at the camp (happiness being the foundation of success for any startup) but in my main speech I focused on how to be a startup rebel.
Because let’s face it: Starting your own company requires you to take risks, ignore any-sayers and not be afraid to be yourself. You can see the whole speech above.
Here are the upcoming international events you can catch me at:
March 23, The Hague, Holland: Happy People Better Business
April 12+13, Birmingham, UK: #SD16 Service Desk Conference
April 27+28, Wroclaw, Poland: Kongres E(x)plory Innowacje
May 9-11, Miami, USA: WorldBlu Summit
Often our speeches are closed events for one client, but these are all open conferences where anyone can buy a ticket. See you there?
If you go to only one business conference this year, make it the WorldBlu Summit on May 9-11 in Miami.
I have been to all their previous events, they always knock my socks off and this one promises to be absolutely amazing and inspiring again.
The theme for the event is democracy at work, ie. how do you create workplaces that are based on freedom rather than on command and control.
Here are three reasons why you should go too.
1: Make your company more profitable
Freedom-based workplaces reduce unneeded hierarchy, processes, bureaucracy and red tape and set employees free to do really good work. This makes the company more innovative and profitable.
2: Make your workplace happier
Secondly, democratic workplaces are happier workplaces. When you grant employees trust, autonomy and freedom to make decisions, there is a much bigger chance that they will be happy at work.
3: Meet and network with some awesome people
The conference attracts some amazing speakers and companies that are only happy to share their ideas and best practices. I have met so many cool people at this conference and I think you will too.

On November 26+27 I will hold an in-depth two-day workshop about happiness at work in Prague. We don’t do a lot of these longer trainings, so this is a rare chance to get the complete scoop on how to create happy workplaces.
