This was a great experience. I was in the need of a speaker for an upcoming conference as was worried that I had waited to long to find someone. Chief Happiness Officer was so wonderful to talk to and offered lots of options for us. We booked him for two events because he was so great!

We guarantee you will find his message insightful and thought provoking. Easily one of the best talks we've had recently. It was one of the best programs I have attended at our always valuable General Membership Meetings

Heather MacAdam

Training & Employment Counselor, Yuba County One

The participants at our monthly speaker series were highly motivated by Edwin Edebiri. His skill as a trainer is exceptional. The audience felt his workshop was extremely valuable and had a practical application. His personal, honest, and humorous style was readily welcomed. It's apparent his intent of impact goes far beyond the walls of the classroom. His goal of spreading the awareness of happiness around the world is very infectious. You can't help walking out of the room knowing that true happiness comes from within and it's something you have control over in these challenging times.

Danielle Darbro

Resource Specialist, Butte County One Stop Community

Edwin Edebiri's presentation was very much focused on how to use networking to land a job, but his energy and his presentation style are quite uplifting and encouraging. Edwin is energetic, positive, and great at teaching others how to develop their networking skills. He combines lightness and humor with practical tools anyone can use.

Yes Edwin, Your message hit the mark. Many of them have come up to me after the meeting and expressed their thanks for having you come. I certainly got a lot out of it and enjoyed your message. Sorry I didn't get to give you a formal good-bye. Thanks again and I will endorse you to my fellow managers and VP's as someone who could deliver a much needed message to our agents.

Sheila Moore

Director, Yuba County One Stop

Edwin gave a 90 minute presentation to staff at the Yuba County One Stop's training and employment counselors. We enjoyed his energy and positive attitude. He gave us great tips on how to stay positive and happy and not let the job bring on too much stress and how to get back to our "happy" place when things are not going good. We are all now wearing our "I Am Happy" pins.
