The evidence is clear: organisations which focus on creating happy workplaces are more productive and more successful. But the knowing-doing gap persists. Many managers struggle to build the culture and practices required for real engagement and performance. Could you be doing more to engage your people at work?
Happy Workplaces 2015 is one day conference for leaders who are ready to embrace high-trust, high-autonomy, high-performance management. Building on previous Happy Workplace Conferences, our focus for 2015 is squarely on doing. You will leave not only inspired, but fully equipped to take concrete action steps in your organisation.

Feedback from Happy Workplaces 2014
Usually at conferences I come away with 2 or 3 good ideas. Yesterday at Happy Workplaces I had 4 pages worth. Brilliantly done.
