About the speaker:
Henry now speaks at conferences in the UK and around the world on how to create happy, productive workplaces. His first book, Relax: A Happy Business Story, was published in 2009. His second book, the Happy Manifesto, was published in January 2012. Both are available from Amazon or as a free PDF download from the Happy Manifesto website.
In 2011 Henry was added to the Guru Radar section of the Thinkers50 list of the most influential business thinkers in the world. “He is one of the thinkers who we believe will shape the future of business,” explained list compiler Stuart Crainer.
Outside of work, Henry lives in Hackney and is married with 3 children. He was, for 15 years, Chair of Governors of his local primary and comprehensive school (which his children attended). His other passion is cycling. In 2008 and 2010 he completed the Etape, the public stage of the Tour de France. In 2016 he cycled the Haute Route, 7 days through the Alps, climbing the equivalent of a third of Everest every day.
