The participant feedback from our 1st International Conference on Happiness at Work is and it looks like we hit that one out of the park.
Here are some of the participants’ comments:
The fact that we had concrete examples and take aways of each speech, that all the people talking were super inspiring and had so many things to teach each and everyone of us! thank you so much for organizing, keep up the happy work!
The whole event worked very well – all seems to have been thought about.
Excellent speakers and a very well prepared conference with a fantastic positive atmosphere.
Last week we had our first ever international conference with 200 participants from 19 countries and we had a BLAST. Here are my absolute favorite pics from the 2 days.
Speaker Rowan Manahan channels Gene Kelly (and possibly Mary Poppins)
Moderator Mikael Kamber, speaker Thomas Vibe and our Japanese attendee Hirokazu Kobayashi lead the audience in an energizing Japanese chant.
Maria Grosz comes on stage to lead the traditional post-lunch dance.
Here’s how that went:
The audience bows down to our final speaker (Tim Dorsett) chanting “We are not worthy.” Don’t worry, there was a point to this :)
Ending the conference with confetti cannons :)
The Woohoo inc team celebrates another successful conference with our moderator Mikael Kamber.
Participants having a good time :)

A great big thank you to our awesome photographer Gareth Garvey. You can find plenty more pics from the conference right here.
Last week we had our first ever International Conference about Happiness at Work.
We’ve done 7 previous events but they were all in Danish (mostly). This year we took the plunge and made the whole event international and in English and we’re so glad we did.
200 awesome participants from 19 countries came to Copenhagen to learn from some great experts, researchers and practitioners and by all accounts they had a GREAT time.
In the preliminary participant feedback, 95% give the conference the highest rating.
We’ve already released the first video from the conference – my talk on The Science of Happiness at Work. We’ll be releasing more talks over the next weeks – follow this blog or subscribe to our newsletter if you don’t want to miss them.
Happy workplaces are more profitable and innovative, attract the best employees and have lower absenteeism and employee turnover rates. Simply put, happy companies make more money.
But how do you create a happy workplace? Many companies try and fail because they focus on the wrong things.
Some of the best answers are found in the happiness science – a fascinating field with research going on all over the world.
In this talk from our 2017 International Conference on Happiness at Work I reveal the 5 most important findings from Positive Psychology and how they apply in the workplace.
We’ll be releasing more talks from the conference soon. Subscribe to our newsletter, if you don’t want to miss them.
