HappyMaven’s Chief Happiness Officer, Suki Bassi says:
“When HappyMaven held an informal & uplifting 30-minute session with our partners, Goodsted, to wrap up Mental Health Awareness Week in May this year, I found the experience simply enjoyable and fun - feelings that had been missing for a little while. Having inspiring and uplifting conversations with our guests and being able to provide them with something tangible to develop their personal, professional or community wellbeing gave me great pleasure and reminded me why I do the work that I do.
I believe this combination of bitesize sessions, pertinent topics, stimulating guest speakers and two-way conversations make for a memorable and valuable experience - personally and professionally. And so to continue to share this with our amazing HappyMaven tribe the idea for a monthly #FeelGoodFriday event was born!”
Watch along to HappyMaven and comedian and creator of Improv for Business UK, Charlie Vero-Martin, who creates live environments where people can embrace their spontaneous flair with creative thinking, teamwork and a dash of silliness for #FeelGoodFriday this month.
“Practicing improv is about giving yourself a toolbox so that you can take on whatever situation is thrown at you and also help support those around you to do the same.”
