The day Alex watched award-winning author, Shawn Achor’s popular Ted Talk “The Happy Secret to Better Work”, started his journey to make Australian workplaces happier and more productive.
This thought-provoking, humorous Ted Talk encouraged Alex to read Shawn’s New York Times best-seller “The Happiness Advantage – The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work”.
Alex was fascinated by the concept of happiness improving performance and satisfaction at work, and our ability to rewire our brains to be more positive. Alex attempted to apply these insights in his work environment, but he craved for a deeper knowledge of The Happiness Advantage.
When he discovered companies could attend a comprehensive training program in the US, teaching them how to bring The Happiness Advantage to life at work, Alex decided to immerse himself in the three-day program, including a train the trainer module. He is now the only trainer in Australia certified to deliver The Happiness Advantage | Orange Frog Workshop.
Alex approached Luli to discuss the idea of a corporate happiness event in Sydney, in response to which she insisted they partner in a business to bring The Happiness Advantage | Orange Frog Workshop to Australia.
