Festival of Happiness 2018
Welcome to the UK’s first ever day dedicated to super-charging your happiness.
Led by Dr Andy Cope and Shonette Bason-Wood, this event is a celebration of happiness and an opportunity to create a huge ripple of positivity that extends across the UK.
You can expect bags of science, loads of fun as well as a fabulous opportunity to learn and apply some simple principles that will transform your life.
Andy Cope, has spent 12 years researching positive psychology, wellbeing and human flourishing, culminating in a Loughborough University PhD. Andy is a sought-after keynote speaker and also masquerades as a best-selling children’s author so is that rarest of talents, an academic with a mental age of 8. He has written several best-selling books and will share some simple philosophies, thinking and techniques that he’s learned along the way.
Andy describes it as ‘personal remembering’; deep down we all know the secrets of happiness but the world conspires to make us forget. Dr Happy will be prescribing a huge personal reminder.
Shonette Bason-Wood was born, in her own words ‘too happy’. She’s living proof that happiness is contagious! Described as the Jessica Rabbit of motivational speakers (‘I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way’), Shonette has a global reach and the Festival of Happiness gives her an opportunity to wow delegates with her brand of infectious self-help comedy.
Beneath the laughs, Shonette has a burning passion to make a difference to the wellbeing of the next generation.
