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.

Filipa Gameiro
Talent Development @Amazing Vision

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

Embracing various entrepreneurial opportunities, she initially collaborated with Happiness Business School on several training projects before taking the lead in our Certified Partners and Consultants Program, creating a fantastic experience and preparing them for success.

Through her experience (and tons of data), Madalena realized the number one reason for her clients' unhappiness and depression was related to labor issues - and found in her the urge to fix it. Madalena is today the Founder of Happiness Business School & Sustainability Buiness School, Course Diretor of the MBA Organisational Happiness in Lisbon and a Corporate Happiness Expert & Consultant, with several certifications and executive training: Coaching, Business Coaching, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Chief Happiness Officer, Science of Happiness, Science of Well Being (Yale University), and Positive Psychiatry and Mental Health (University of Sydney).
