I am in BBC Radio 3’s very loose adaptation of Kafka’s The Metamorphosis called Mr. Rainbow. Here Gregory, Kafka’s main character facing a scary transformation, seeks advice from different experts – including yours truly.
I’m a featured expert on World HR Net, with an interview where I talk about what makes us happy at work.
I’m also in the papers in Denmark today:
I just did a really fun interview for CNN Turkey. It goes out tomorrow at 4pm when they’re transmitting live from the conference I’m speaking at.
UPDATE: You can see the whole thing here. I’m on around 15 minutes into the video.
Did I tell you about the time British happiness researcher Nic Marks and I were the featured guests on a Bulgarian talk show? They had a live band playing while we talked and we also got to play improve theater.
In short, it was awesome :)
Here it is:
How awesome is that: This French article calls me le gourou danois du bonheur au travail.
Vive la France :)
I was in the New York Post this week:
My friend Rowan Manahan wrote to me that he liked the article but was sorely disappointed in the headline. After all, he said, NY Post is the newspaper that once ran the headline “Headless body found in topless bar” :)
In January I was in London to promote the UK release of the updated version of my first book (Happy Hour is 9 to 5).
I had many great talks and interviews but by far the best and the most interesting was the hour I spent with Brian Rose at London Real TV. You can see the whole no-holds-barred interview above. Watch it!
I’m famous :-) This commercial is currently running on Danish TV and so far I’ve been recognized from it twice.
The ad is for a Danish union called Krifa, who distinguish themselves by focusing more on creating great work lives for their members and less on creating an adversarial relationship with employers.
Translation for non-Danes: “Our work lives change constantly, and we should be happy all along. In association with krifa, I’ve created podcasts, trainings, an ebook and a film that you can use to create more happiness and better results. See the film on krifa.dk.”
Ok, THAT was a challenge :o)
I spent the morning in a recording studio making a radio ad for a client. It was fun but quite challenging, repeating the same 15-second message over and over with tiny changes in inflection and tone.
They seemed happy with the result though, so I trust I did an OK job.
The TV ads they shot in December start airing tonight and the radio ads should start next week.
