Happy’s upcoming conferences: February and March 2017

We have an exciting programme of events coming up over the next few months!

Beyond Budgeting

First up is Beyond Budgeting 2017 on 6th February 2017, with an optional workshop on 7th February, hosted at Happy’s training centre in Aldgate. This conference is the third event co-hosted by the Beyond Budgeting Institute and Happy, and is all about transforming traditional management systems. You will learn how to remove bureaucracy and get rid of suffocating control systems, and how to trust staff with information and giving them time to think, reflect, share, learn and improve.

Speakers include Anders Olesen (Director of the Beyond Budgeting Institute), Bjarte Bogsnes (VP Performance Management Development, Statoil, and Chairman, Beyond Budgeting Institute), Denise Hudson Lawson (Enterprise Customer Success Manager, Pluralsight) and Kevin McCoy (Managing Director, NextJump).

While in day one you will hear case studies and practical examples from organisations who have tried, tested, and implemented these ideas, in the second day, our interactive workshop will give you the tools to do it yourself. Henry Stewart (CEO of Happy) and Anders Olesen will answer all of your questions about how to get started, convince others, and start your journey Beyond Budgeting.

Creating Happier Workplaces in Health

And finally, we will be hosting Creating Happier Workplaces in Health in partnership with the Faculty of Medical Leadership and Management on 1st March 2017.

You will hear from healthcare organisations that have used techniques to increase the happiness within their workforce and therefore increase the value of the organisations’ work, including Mr Peter Lees (Chief Executive and Medical Director, FMLM), Dr Natalie Silvey (National Medical Director’s Clinical Fellow at NHS England) and Val Frost and Denise Thiruchelvam of First Community Health in Surrey.
