“When we are happy – when our mindset and mood are positive – we are smarter, more motivated, and thus more successful. Happiness is the center, and success revolves around it.”
Shawn Achor, The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work.

Let’s get happy together and celebrate 3 years of SmartWomen Connect at our official Brisbane Launch!

Hosted by Clayton Utz, you will have the opportunity to learn, connect and enjoy the company of other amazing women. There will also be the opportunity to become Founding Members of our Brisbane SmartWomen Clan.

If you ask someone what they want from their life, and from their career, it’s highly likely their answer will involve some variation of “I want to be happy”.

And the latest findings in positive psychology, neuroscience and the related research studying human thriving show that they are on to something – all the findings show happy people experience huge benefits.

Based on the bestselling book ‘The Happiness Advantage’ by Shawn Achor, Alex Dawson, our keynote speaker, will introduce you to the proven science of happiness, as a vehicle to drive greater personal and professional success.

During this session you’ll gain an understanding of the three core philosophies foundational to The Happiness Advantage and apply your new knowledge to build an action plan for developing a new positive personal habit, so you can begin your journey to capitalise on the proven benefits of a positive engaged brain.
