Our Comment

"Paul is an outstanding speaker and world-leading expert on the science of happiness. His acclaimed book, "Happiness By Design" (Penguin, 2014) argues that pleasure is not the only ingredient of happiness - the amount of purpose we feel in what we do is also crucial. And while standard research into happiness tends to ask whether certain 'inputs' (such as money or being married) make us happy, he argues it's more important to ask how much time our attention is directed at things that make us happy or sad. Paul's pioneering research has led him to work with Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman, consult for the British government and advise global corporations on behavioural and happiness issues affecting the productivity of their workforce."
