The founder of EKM, Antony Chesworth, is a perfect example of a 2%'er and recently spoke to Andy on our podcast - why not give it a listen?

Andy is a sought-after keynote speaker and also masquerades as a best-selling children’s author so is that rarest of talents, an academic with a mental age of 8. He has written several best-selling books and will share some simple philosophies, thinking and techniques that he’s learned along the way. Andy describes is as ‘personal remembering’; deep down we all know the secrets of happiness but the world conspires to make us forget. Dr Happy will be prescribing a huge personal reminder.

Described as the Jessica Rabbit of motivational speakers (‘I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way’), Shonette has a global reach and the Festival of Happiness gives her an opportunity to wow delegates with her brand of infectious self-help comedy. Beneath the laughs, Shonette has a burning passion to make a difference to the wellbeing of the next generation.

What happens when you get 1000 positive people in a room? Nobody knows, because it’s never been done before. The only way to find out is to BE THERE.
