“The most thought-provoking and action-oriented sessions at this year’s Foresight & Trends conference was John Havens' Happathon platform. Besides his dynamic and engaging presentation skills, he took the topic of happiness and proved that it could be measured. He provided ways to take what he spoke about and activate it personally and professionally. I didn’t want the session to end. We need someone like John to empower and educate our company on how to approach and embed happiness & wellbeing in the workplace and apply metrics to that.

“The “Really Happy Employee’s” session with John C. Havens was incredible. Not only did he share some excellent resources regarding the importance of our mental health and well being, he also provided gentle reminders of the fact that we all have control of our own happiness. One of my favorite quotes from his session was, 'Be choiceful about what you put in your brain and in your heart'. He went on to share various apps available for our phones that help to track our daily disposition, and then engaged us with an activity during which we were to genuinely regard the person next to us! We were to ask them what they’re grateful for, listen carefully to them, and then repeat back to them the thing they’re grateful for. I will carry this activity with me always, as we tend to move so quickly in this fast paced digital world that we often don’t give proper attention to the people and places that bring joy to our lives. Thank you, John, for an excellent reminder of how tangible happiness truly is for each and every one of us!”
