A few kind words by our students

I would like to thank Happiness Business School for the Happiness Manager training. In this very hard time we are living in, it was very important to acquire new tools to keep the team together and happy.

Madalena in her wonderful videos and all the material provided, turned into authentic oxygen bubbles that improvede me a lot, with her simple but very objective speech, it made me want to be with my colleagues on a daily basis in a positive, assertive and more informed way.

I have been looking for training in this area for some time. As I believe that it will be an increasingly valued area in companies is undoubtedly the area in which I wanted to reinforce my skills.The course is very well structured and with very relevant content. It gave me a set of tools that I can use in my day-to-day life, with me and my team. I strongly recommend it.

Happiness at work is a topic that has been chasing me for years, that made me make personal choices, and that is fully aligned with my purpose. Today I celebrate another step on this path. It makes perfect sense that there is someone in companies whose sole purpose is to ensure the well-being of people and ensure the alignment between work, mission and values.

I received my Happiness Business School diploma and it was great to reinforce the beliefs in some of my convictions, discover studies that confirm my ideas, meet more people who, like me, believe that happiness makes the difference. The course gave me tools ready to be implemented, ideas that I want to test, and a great desire to make it happen.

Are you ready for this?

With a law degree, Madalena worked for several years in immigration and compliance, focusing on international education - but soon realized that that
was not her path to happiness. Followed to her discovery, and through coaching for personal and professional performance, she then started helping people improving their realities. 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 a Corporate Happiness Expert & Consultant, with several certifications: Chief Happiness Officer, Life Coaching, Business Coaching, and Neuro-linguistic Programming - besides a number of Professional Trainings: Science of Happiness (edX), Science of Well Being (Yale University), and Positive Psychiatry and Mental Health (University of Sydney). To this day, Madalena has helped hundreds of people and companies all around the world. Her main mission? Boosting meaningful work cultures to promote purposeful careers.
