Best week ever!!!!!

Speakers at Arbejdsglæde Live! 2009

Speakers at Arbejdsglæde Live! 2009, our annual conference about happiness at work.

Last week has been the best week ever in the history of our company. It’s fun to be able to look back at and go “whoah – I’m glad we don’t rock that much every week :o)”

Here are a few highlights from the week:

We had our conference about happiness at work on Tuesday. 12 speakers from Denmark and USA and a great audience made this the happiest conference on Danish soil this year.

You can read more about the conference here (In Danish).

Here’s Steve Shapiro, our morning keynote speaker, giving his take on the day:

My new book (Hurra, der er krise / Hooray, there’s a crisis) debuted on the Danish non-fiction top-10 bestseller list. I was mostly edged out of the top spot by sudoku books and cook books:

The book was also reviewed in JyllandsPosten (a major Danish newspaper) and receieved 5 out of 6 stars for usability and 6 out of 6 for entertainment value. Some choice quotes:

Every time you finish a page, you just want to read another one. One of the most relevant books on the shelves right now. Read it and get happy.

You can see the review here (In Danish).

To cap off the week, I went to London to speak at London Business School. I was a guest speaker at Dr. Srikumar S. Rao’s class on Creativity and Personal Mastery and I had a blast with them. I also really enjoyed the previous day’s guest speaker Ben Zander, the conductor of the Boston Philharmonic.

So here’s to a great week – and here’s hoping that not every week has to be this intense :o)

  1. So are you telling me that there has to be a few not-so-happy weeks to distinguish the intense great weeks? I wonder what would happen if you had a string of great weeks? Enjoy reading the blog – thanks-

  2. Alexander, great news. It is extremely cool that your book made the top-10 list (and that you beat the book of song lyrics for Danish schools by one spot :-)

  3. I’ve been subscribing to your blog for quite some time. I lived in Brazil for 6 mos and my three closest friends were Danish. So, I’m sure I ‘ll be in Kopenhagen soon :). Great blog.

  4. Super with the new book allready having an impact. And great with a positive angle on hard times, more of that!
