WorkHuman: a highlight of my first quarter!

It has been literally YEARS that I wanted to attend the annual event organized by the company Globoforce (for those who don’t know them, they are super innovative and leading edge in Recognition and Engagement. They thrive to inspire leaders in creating more inclusive workplaces where everybody can contribute… I strongly encourage you to look at this company).

“WorkHuman” has become over the years a global community bringing together professional who are passionate about bringing more humanity into the workplace and to lift up everyone. The event has also been famous for ensuring great speakers and facilitators are there… People like Gary Hamel, Michelle Obama, Adam Grant, Michael J Fox, Arianna Huffington have been speaking at WorkHuman.

In 2018 WorkHuman hosted Simon Sinek, Brené Brown, Salma Hayek Pinault, Amal Clooney, Shawn Achor, David Rock…

And I was there ! No, not as a speaker… not this time. This time was just a treat for me. To get stimulated, to generate new ideas on how to best support my clients, to meet other great people, and of course to get inspired by these great thoughtleaders. So many WOAW moments!

One of them was a unique moment with Simon Sinek talking about his last book… A moment I still remember and will for long. Did you know that he has family in Geneva?

I was also so moved by listening to the life story of Salma Hayek Pinault. Many of us know her as an actress… she is one of the funniest, brave, determined woman I have ever met! She graved in me a special moment, one of those you know will never go away… so special!

And the moment with Amal (Clooney ;-)) was a treat too! So chic and adorable, but not only. Smart, courageous, inspiring and humble. We need more women like her to make the world a better one!
