Join Nic Marks, Founder of innovative tech-based company; Happiness Works, who will draw on evidence that everyone benefits when businesses take happiness seriously as well as exploring what your business will benefit from increased happiness in the team.


Nic Marks helps businesses build happier, more productive workplaces.

Described as a “Statistician with a Soul” because of his unusual combination of ‘hard’ statistical skills and ‘soft’ people skills, he draws on scientific evidence to show that everyone benefits when businesses take happiness seriously.

Nic founded Happiness Works, an innovative tech-based business with offices in London and San Francisco, to be the catalyst in changing the world of work for the better.

Nic was an advisor to the UK Government Office for Science on the Wellbeing Foresight Programme and has written over 20 publications.

In 2010 Nic was invited to speak at the prestigious TED global conference. His TED talk has now been watched well over a million times, and he authored one of the original three TEDbooks, entitled ‘A Happiness Manifesto’.

As well as being the CEO of Happiness Works, Nic is a board member at Action for Happiness, a charity campaigning for a happier and more caring world whose patron is the Dalai Lama and a Fellow of the New Economics Foundation.

This dinner will look to explore, but will not be limited to:

  • How to measure happiness and what questions you should be asking your team
  • How to create a team onboarding process which instils happiness from the outset
  • The real reasons why happiness in the workplace is so important for your business
  • What benefits your business will see if your team happiness increases
  • How happiness can vary between different sectors
