Join us in March – April 2021 for our WOOHOO CHO Academy in English and in April – May 2021 in Spanish. On both academies we teach you everything we know about happiness at work in – or as much of it as we can cram into this course. In 6 weeks you will get an in-depth background in happiness at work, the latest research in the field, and learn how to use this in your business.

“The Chief Happiness Officer Academy was, without a doubt, the best training I have ever experienced (and I’ve participated in many trainings). It was very well organized, and provided the latest research, practical strategies and opportunities to engage in many meaningful experiential activities.”
“After the course I came back to my organisation full of ideas, plans and time lines on how, who and when this was going to happen.
"I have attended many motivational and leadership courses over the past 20 years and never came out with so much clarity as after this course. It was interesting with so many nationalities, experiences and angles to the same topic."
"The value vs time spend for me was immense as my entire organisation of over 100 people will benefit directly.”
"Thank you for such an inspiring and energising academy. LOVED every moment of it."
