We are counting down the days until The Culture Project 2018 (69 days to be exact!) It will be a day filled with cultural learning, breakout sessions, snacking, coffee, and more! To make this day the very best it can be, we have two brilliant and talented keynote speakers joining us to share their thoughts on the importance of workplace culture and creating a positive environment for your employees.

Introducing Jenn Lim, CEO & Chief Happiness Officer of Delivering Happiness. She co-founded the company with Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos.com, where they take a scientific approach to inspire happiness, passion and purpose at work, home and in everyday life.

As a consultant for Zappos, Jenn has seen the company grow from its start-up days in 2003 to the $2 billion business it is today. She has contributed to this success by creating the Zappos Culture Book, a how-to guide for companies in successfully creating cultures based on happiness, while also increasing productivity and profitability.

Jenn’s experience with Zappos culture, combined with developing scientific frameworks for companies to create their own unique work culture, created the evidence that happier employees = happier customers = successful companies (and meaningful lives). She has delivered talks to companies in over 30 countries on this equation and shares the evidence as to HOW this equation works.

Delivering Happiness has evolved into a culture coach-sulting company helping all types of workplaces find their ideal culture for positive ROI. Today, Jenn is dedicated to growing the social venture of Delivering Happiness to Inspire, be Inspired and create happiness. We cannot wait to hear her expert take on all things happy.

Next up, Claude Silver, Chief Heart Officer at VaynerMedia. As Gary Vaynerchuk’s right-hand woman, Claude cultivates the heart of the agency’s success: it’s people. Her role was developed specifically for her success in a career focused on guiding client relationships, global brand strategies, operations, and management.

She oversees all things “people” at VaynerMedia for over 750 employees and is dedicated to helping them find meaning in what they are doing, ensuring that her team is constantly thriving, accomplishing, and working happy.

Claude has had numerous leadership positions at world-renowned companies such as J. Walter Thompson and Publicis, both in their London offices. Her roles centered around her passion for creating spaces in which people can thrive and facilitating growth and change in people, teams and companies.
