Meik Wiking is a keynote speaker who serves as the  CEO of The Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen.  Meik is also a Research Associate for Denmark at the World Database of Happiness and Founding member of The Latin American Network for Wellbeing and Quality of Life Policies. He holds a degree in business and political science and has previously worked for the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Vilstrup Research and as a director for the think tank Monday Morning.
