Happiness ‘ambassador’ to speak on positive thinking
Belgian author Leo Bormans, the self-styled ambassador of happiness and quality of life, will deliver a breakfast talk on ‘The Power of Positive Thinking’ at Floriana’s Phoenicia Hotel on June 1.
The event, including a public debate, will be moderated by Prof. Joe Friggieri.
Organised by Leading Talks, in collaboration with the University’s recently launched Re-search, Innovation and Development Trust and the Malta Philosophy Society, the talk is open to social workers, businessmen, teachers, academics, NGOs, and government officials.
Mr Bormans challenges the myths about happiness and positivity. A Belgian journalist, inspirator, writer and motivational speaker, he is the chief editor and author of the international bestseller The World Book of Happiness – a collection of 100-odd short essays about happiness. The book has been translated into several languages and has been sent by European Council president Herman Van Rompuy to all leaders of the world as a New Year’s gift in 2012.
“Researchers are encouraging a relatively new discipline of positive psychology,” Leading Talks’ Patrick Parnis explained.
“If we have a better understanding of our inner positive potential and look at the bright side of things, then we can make better use of our profound techniques to create happiness around us.”
Leading Talks has brought a number of high-profile speakers from industry, media, and entrepreneurship to lead seminars to selected audiences over the past year.
