We are very excited to announce our speaker line up at our 2019 Happy Workplaces Conference.

You will hear from fabulous speakers who are creating happy workplaces:

  • Traci Fenton, CEO of WorldBlu: Ten Great Examples From Some of the Most Democratic Workplaces on the Planet

Each of these speakers will be sharing their experiences of creating happy and engaged workplaces, with great ideas that you can take back to your own workplace. You will also be able to meet with dozens of people who share a belief in building trust and freedom – we guarantee you will leave feeling inspired!

"We must have talked to at least 90% of the people in the room with the mix of speed networking, speaker questions for table discussions, break-out sessions and quick-fire breaks. If anyone is putting on a conference in the near future, have a chat with team Happy, I’m sure they would help you elevate the day and enable every attendee to come away raving about it.”

Nikki Gatenby of Propellernet on the 2018 conference

On Day 2, Henry Stewart will be hosting an optional masterclass at Happy’s HQ in Aldgate that will focus on the practical ways you can create a happy workplace.

Our Early Bird pricing ends soon on 29th April – tickets are currently £295 + VAT for the one-day, or £495 + VAT for both days. Visit the 2019 Happy Workplaces Conference page to learn more and to book your place.
