Event Details



We are bombarded with stories about how to live a happy life. But which ideas are helpful and which ones are misleading?

At this special event, Karen Guggenheim and Professor Paul Dolan will share inspiring insights and the latest research to help us rethink the prevailing view of happiness and discover a more authentic and meaningful way of living.

Karen founded the hugely successful World Happiness Summit; and Paul is an LSE behavioural scientist and best-selling author whose ground-breaking work challenges conventional thinking on happiness.

"Dolan is especially illuminating when it comes to bigger life-choices and what will truly make you happy" ~ Oliver Burkeman

"Karen is an inspiring force for good at the heart of the global happiness movement" ~ Dr Mark Williamson (Action for Happiness)
