2020 Happy Workplaces Conference

Our biggest event of the year will be back next year on Wednesday 17th June 2020 at Friends House in central London! The current line up includes Ynzo van Zanten, Choco Evangelist at Tony's Chocolonely — with more speakers to be announced soon.

Make sure you save the date — book at our Early Bird rate of £295 per person until 30th April!

Join our movement to create happy workplaces

Imagine a workplace where people are in control of the work they do. Imagine they have freedom, within clear guidelines, to achieve their results. Imagine they are able to have the life balance they want. Imagine they are accountable for the work they do, rather than the time they spend at their desk.

This is what we mean when we talk about happy workplaces — organisations where staff feel trusted and have freedom within clear guidelines to do their work.

The Happy Workplaces Conference is the annual event for anyone currently working towards a happy workplace, or who would like to learn more about how to start.

Join us on 17th June for fantastic speakers, lively discussions and networking opportunities with others committed to creating a happy workplace.

Save your place now at our Early Bird rate of just £295 each for a single day or £495 each for both days, when you book before 30th April! (A saving of £100 on each ticket!) Contact us or call 020 7375 3700 to book.
