About Happiness Talks

In support of the “U.A.E's Happiness and Positivity programme” and to connect the community through Happiness in the “Year of the Giving 2017”, The Spreading Happiness Team: Touch Points Consultancy, RIT Dubai and Vonni  have collaborated to bring to the community, “Happiness Talks – Spreading Happiness”

If you are looking to enable a “Happy Mindset” for inner and sustainable happiness rather than a happy event for a short lived pleasure or joy this is the place to be.

On a monthly basis at Happiness Talks we will share with you thought provoking sessions by industry and topic experts, who will give you tips, tools and techniques using the science and neuroscience of happiness, to develop a happy mindset and live a happy lifestyle.

Become a part of this unique initiative to attain and spread happiness as a mindset and a lifestyle.

Introduction to Happiness

Happiness is certainly not an option. Everyone wants to be happy, and be happy all the time. It is a very basic and an undeniable human requirement. It is a reality that must be enabled in you to be a happy person for the good of yourself and others, in organisations to achieve better business results and in communities to be a happy country. 

Developing a “Happy Mindset” is where it needs to start otherwise Happiness remains just an event that is short lived, not consistent and definitely not a lifestyle.
