We are very excited to announce that Paul Gapper is a Finalist for the Learning Professional of the Year at the 2017 Learning Awards!
The 2017 Learning Awards is an annual event hosted by the Learning and Performance Institute, recognising outstanding examples of high standards, best practice, innovation and excellence in Learning and Development.
Paul is a Senior Facilitator and has been at Happy for over two years. His training ranges from personal development courses such as grammar, punctuation and effective writing skills, through to presentation skills, project management and our four day Happy Workplace Leadership Programme. His training has had a material effect in changing the culture of organisations, creating workplaces based on trust and autonomy.
“People think of meditation as being about emptying your head or levitating,” explains Paul. “But it’s not about that. It can have real practical application in creating a more positive workplace where people can make the most of their energy to achieve the results they need.”
Paul’s evaluations this year tell clearly how happy and fulfilled his delegates are, with 99.1% rating him Good or Excellent on their overall verdict and 99.8% Good or Excellent on being a Supportive Trainer. Here are just a selection of comments from his recent training courses:
- “[liked] the way the experience was facilitated – absolutely dynamic!”
- “Good facilitator and dealt with potentially awkward situations very well. Made everyone feel relaxed.”
- “[liked] the general human delivery of it.”
- “I wasn’t sure it was for me but the techniques did work. I have a full understanding of mindfulness now.”
- “I came into this not knowing what to expect. But I’m gladly surprised and have learned a lot.”

His Mindfulness training course next takes place at Happy on 6th January 2017, or contact us if you’d like Paul to train Mindfulness, Resilience or any of our Leadership and Management training courses as a private group booking (either at your workplace or at Happy).
Please join us in congratulating Paul on this huge achievement, and wishing him the very best of luck at the awards in February.
