New Chief Happiness Officer Academy announced for Copenhagen in December

Participants from 16 countries at the CHO Academy in June 2019 in Copenhagen

Our regular CHO Academy in June sold out very quickly and had a long waiting list so we added an extra one in November. That one is now also sold out, so we’ve added an extra extra Academy in Copenhagen on December 8-11 2019.

If you want a deep dive into the theory and practice of creating happy workplaces then this is the training for you.

Previous participants loved the training, and said things like:

“Without a doubt, the best training I have ever experienced.”

“I came back to my organisation full of ideas, plans and time lines on how, who and when this was going to happen.”

“An inspiring and energising academy. LOVED every moment of it.”

Our latest Chief Happiness Officer Academy was a hit. Engaged participants from 8 countries (USA, Argentina, Mexico, Turkey, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Belgium and Czech Republic) all contributed with high energy and tons of great ideas and questions over the 3-day training.

And for the first time we even got to do the Academy at the offices of WD-40 in San Diego so we could experience their culture in person.

WD-40’s CEO Garry Ridge gave us a tour and explained their amazing culture

Our latest CHO Academy was a huge hit

In June we had our latest Chief Happiness Officer Academy, which is our longest and most intensive training on creating happier workplaces.

The Academy was completely sold out with 25 participants from 15 countries (and a long waiting list) and it was a huge pleasure to share our tools and methods over three days with such an engaged group.

The participant feedback has been amazing with an average rating of 9.7 out of 10. Participants wrote:

“THANK YOU! This was really fantastic.”

“I think it was just very well organized. You were just really good at taking care of us and making sure that everyone would get a good experience. The venue was perfect – very personal and cozy and super inspiring. I would like to come back.”

“It has been really an amazing experience. Amazing students, amazing teachers, amazing future that we have outlined. I have found myself for my next career :) Thanks.”

Our next two Academies have been announced. They are:

  • February 12-15 2019 in San Diego
  • June 24-28 2019 in Copenhagen

Congratulations to the graduates from our Chief Happiness Officer Academy in NYC

We just completed our 6th Chief Happiness Officer Academy. This one took place in NYC and had participants from 6 countries. One person even flew in from Tokyo to attend!

We had a wonderful three days with the group, where we explored the theory and practice of creating happy workplaces.

The participants loved it – the average feedback rating is a solid 10 out of 10. Here are some of their comments:

“THANK YOU! This was really fantastic.”

“The message was clear and the tasks were helpful. Group work kept engagement high and time for reflection was important.”

“I took away so many good ideas about creating happiness at workplaces and a theoretical background about happiness at work.”

If you want to be a Chief Happiness Officer, our Academy is perfect for you. See the upcoming dates here.

Our latest Academy was a BLAST

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.

The next two Academies will take place on:

  • October 17-20 2017 in Copenhagen Denmark
  • February 13-16 in New York City USA
