Last week we held the 3rd international
Woohoo Academy. 21 people from 12 countries (including Malaysia, India, China and Canada) came to Copenhagen to learn all about happiness at work in our most intensive, in-depth, 3-day training.
It was a major hit – everyone loved it and everyone passed. Not only did we get to share everything we know about creating happier workplaces, the participants also got to share their best experiences and tips with each other and with such an experienced and varied group, that was incredibly valuable for both them and us.
Our next Academy is on October 18-21 in New York City.

UPDATE: Our partner in Hong Kong wrote about
his experience at the Academy here, saying:
Besides gaining in-depth and latest information on the subject, I have also learnt to pass on the knowledge and tools to professionals and leaders through short keynotes or full-day workshops.
It was one of the best training events, and included field trips, sightseeing and lots of fun and games.
Here are some of our favorite pics from 3 amazing days in Copenhagen.
While most of our speaking gigs are for client companies and therefore limited to only their employees, we also speak at some open events.

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:
Often our speeches are closed events for one client, but these are all open conferences where anyone can buy a ticket. See you there?
