Event Details

Join us for a unique and inspiring evening with international best-selling author, innovator and happiness thinker Mo Gawdat.

As Chief Business Officer at Google X (the innovation arm of Google), Mo has spent years developing “moonshot” ideas to help make the world a better place. Following the tragic death of his son Ali, Mo is now on a mission to help one billion people become happier.

Mo has discovered that happiness follows a predictable equation and has distilled this into practical actions which are relevant to all. His recent Channel 4 interview went viral with over 80 million views.
