However, we’ll share your paper on the website so that the audience can access your full paper. 

Again, thank you very much for your kind support for the conference and we look forward to seeing you at the second Conference.

Impact on a person

Activity: In January 2018 Everard gave a course to staff in a healthcare institute. A part of the course went into the topic of ‘happiness’. How can we make our residents happy?  How can we make our colleagues happy? And , last but not least, how can we be happy ourselves?  Since, happy staff makes happy patients. For that purpose questions were asked like what makes you happy in life.

Impact: One of the participants was a nurse from the Philippines that worked abroad, a long way from home in the Caribbean Auxiliary Home. On my way back to Amsterdam the nurse was with me in the plane. I asked him, if he was on holiday. He said: “No, you made me go home forever. I have been reflecting a lot on your questions concerning happiness and I know now I need to go home to my family and find work on the Philippines, where I can really be happy. You changed my life”.
