I want to say a great big Thank You and a High Five You Rock to the conference arrangers and all who attended my keynote at Talks 2.0 in Oporto on May 7. Thanks for a fantastic time – I really enjoyed it. You guys were great and the entire day was fun and inspiring.
The background for the event was serious, namely the financial crisis in Portugal, which is affecting every aspect of work life in the country.
In my keynote, I presented my view, which is that a serious crisis only makes it MORE necessary to focus on and create happy workplaces. If we don’t the resulting stress, frustration, hopelessness and cynicism ruins peoples’ work lives and private lives, it makes us less productive and creative, and it means that economic recovery takes longer.
It was my first time in Portugal, but I got a great impression of the country and especially of the people. With this much energy, creativity, passion, humor and happiness, there is nothing you guys can’t do!
Here are some materials from the day including, slides, videos, articles and more.
I’d love to know what you thought of my speech – please write a comment on this blog post and give me your honest feedback. Thanks!
My e-book in Portuguese – for free
As mentioned I decided to release the Portuguese translation of my book as a free e-book.
And let me make this perfectly clear: It’s free and you may copy and send this pdf to as many people as you like. Send it to everyone you know who doesn’t love their job or who could use a little more happiness at work.
Did I mention that it’s free?
