Sofie Sun

Keynote: Define Your Happiness

When Sofie was 6 years old, she already realized that it was not always good to be herself. She was an introverted, sensitive and critical child. However, she was surrounded by people who told her that this was not the way that children should be. That is when she started to create a mask, partly to protect herself. She tried to learn to be extraverted and to please others. Her heart was locked. She knew deep down that this was not who she really was. She longed to be herself, to feel free without all those masks. After a long and intense search that lasted 28 years, she has found herself again.

In her talk she will share with you what happiness means to her and how you can take the first step to get closer to your own happiness.

09:50 – 10:20

Mo Gawdat

Keynote: Solve for Happy at work

In this talk, Mo Gawdat offers solid research on how happiness affects productivity and performance at work, the difference between employee happiness vs satisfaction, and how managers and HR professionals, especially in challenging times, can build an environment that promotes employee happiness based on his international bestseller – Solve for Happy – and his 11 years of experience as a Google executive.

At the end of the talk, the attendees will be left with a much clearer understanding of the value employee happiness brings to company performance and the clear steps to take in order to create a work environment that promotes happiness.
