congress ‘everybody happy’ – 3 october 2014

posted in agenda, business | by

Jigmi Y. ThinleyManagement training and event centre De Baak, the Netherlands is organising the “Everybody Happy” congress for entrepreneurs on October 3, 2014. Not that long ago, boardrooms or political meetings would echo with derision at the idea of anyone trying to put ‘happiness’ on the agenda. But now it has become a topic which both intrigues and inspires.

Happiness appears to be the ultimate factor for business success and for society’s quality. People work together better and make more of society if they are happy. De Baak is highly honoured to host a contribution from H.E. Jigmi Y. Thinley, former Prime Minister of Bhutan – the only country in the world where Gross National Happiness is measured each year.

Jenn LimCEO and Chief Happiness Officer of Delivering Happiness will explain  how happiness contributes to brilliant business results. Jenn was co-author of the book Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh, founder of online retailer Zappos. bhutan+partners is supporting De Baak with advice and clips with interviews of H.E Jigmi Y. Thinley on Gross National Happiness and environmental changes. Clips with H.E. Jigmi Y. Thinley on the Conference Everybody Happy (August 2014) and Climate Change (August 2010)
