Previous participants said
The Chief Happiness Officer Academy was, without a doubt, the best training I have ever experienced (and I’ve participated in many trainings). It was very well organized, and provided the latest research, practical strategies and opportunities to engage in many meaningful experiential activities.
– Danielle Forth, Canada
After the course I came back to my organisation full of ideas, plans and time lines on how, who and when this was going to happen.
I have attended many motivational and leadership courses over the past 20 years and never came out with so much clarity as after this course. It was interesting with so many nationalities, experiences and angles to the same topic.
The value vs time spend for me was immense as my entire organisation of over 100 people will benefit directly.
– Monika Hilm, Czech Republic
Thank you for such an inspiring and energising academy. LOVED every moment of it.
– Dr Jenny Brockis, Australia
