A few kind words by our students

Rafael Cerveira Pinto,
Managing partner @Squadra

Last year I visited Google. Since that day, I have felt how far ahead the positive culture of this company was, as well as the genuine concern for the well-being of its People. Since then, I tried to get to know this new corporate culture in a more structured way. I opted to undertake the CHO training and it was a great investment. It gave us access to extremely interesting concepts, case studies and tools for the future.

For someone passionate about PD, it is not easy to be surprised when the topic is organizational behavior. What a pleasant surprise these 3 days! Challenging, rewarding, filled with moments of validation and hope. A dynamic and tireless trainer, who extraordinarily combines the cognitive-technical-practical vein with the emotional, empathic, and human touch! Full access to scientific studies and powerful tools. An organization full of affection.

Adriana Oliveira,
Head of People @Sanitop

Thanks a lot to Happiness Business School. Amazing days... absolutely inspiring! Influencing everyone to be happy at work is crucial. 3 days of pure transformation where we learned how to easily apply theory and concepts to a company's daily routine. Come with us on this hapinness journey because together we achieve more.

Natacha Lopes,
Happiness Consultant

More than ever, happiness at work has become not only a trend but a need that all companies must fulfil. This certification comes as must-have for every professional that wants to contribute to a better and happier workplace. There were three days full of learning, development and inspirational people to learn with. I would totally recommend it.

Alexandra Martins,
Marketing & Communication @Evershed Sutherland FCB

In a world that was turned upside down in the last year, happiness at work is no longer an employee bonus but an essential asset to guarantee corporate success and, most important, people success. The work Happiness Business School does, in teaching and training people in this philosophy, is of paramount importance. I do believe the Universe conspires and that it has brought me the Chief Happiness Officer Certification at the right time. Three full days of a perfect blend of science and heart, numbers and people, strategy and empathy. I have learned so much, consolidating and acquiring knowledge but also sharing positive experiences and dreaming of a brighter future together with a group of unforgettable people. It’s time to start spreading the magic. I mean, happiness.

Eunice Barroso,
Permaculture Designer

At house at Happiness Business School, I found a home, inhabited by amazing people and decorated with genuine and sincere smiles. It was so good to be together with such different people and to feel that we all have something in common and that we invested in this training to have more tools to sow happiness colours in the sometimes so gray corporate world. Nowadays, it is essential to create paths that lead us to the best of oursevlves. Choosing to be happy takes work, but it is in the day-to-day and in the little things that we can make all the difference and influence everything around us. Obtaining a CHO certificate gave me the necessary structure to, together with my experience, work in the professional environment creating solutions with the goal of increasing well-being combined with productivity.

Diana Ferreira,
Human Resources Specialist @EDP

I believe Hapinness is the new black. Action for Happiness helps people take action for a happier and more caring world. More than ever, we all need to feed our minds and seed positive feelings both in our family and workplaces context. It was in this sense that I participated in this certification last October. Where I gained expertise in how to design and implement an efficient Organizational Happiness Strategy in a company. I am grateful to have known this amazing tribe with such good vibes. Step by step we can influence and create more happy moments, making the corporate world a better place. 

Sofia Teixeira,
