Mo Gawdat – Masterclass

After the smashing success of the previous events we are once again very excited to invite you to the Masterclass: ‘Solve for Happy’ – De logica van geluk with Mo Gawdat, in Amsterdam on the 24th of November.


In the modern (business) world, happiness is often surrounded by myths. Much of our understanding of what happiness is and where to find it is distorted. How do we bring happiness to life at home, work, society and across the world, if we don’t know what we are looking for?

According to Mo Gawdat, Executive at Google X and author of Solve for Happy. The answer lies in the qualities: to view life through a clear lens, to dispel the six illusions that cloud our thinking; overcome the seven brain’s blind spots; and embrace five ultimate truths. When you know what you’re looking for, the quest becomes easy.

– Mo Gawdat –

Mo Gawdat is the Chief Business Officer at Google [X], an elite team of engineers that comprise Google’s futuristic “dream factory”. They lead projects that will reinvent the way things are and deliver a radical, ten fold -10X- improvement, known as: ‘moonshots’.

Mo is also the author of ‘Solve for Happy: Engineering Your Path to Joy’ (2017). Through his 12 year research on the topic of happiness, he created an algorithm and a repeatable well-engineered model to reach a state of uninterrupted happiness regardless of the circumstances of life. Mo’s happiness model proved highly effective. And, in 2014, was put to the ultimate test when Mo lost his son Ali to preventable, medical error during a simple surgical procedure. ‘Solve for Happy’ is the pillar for a mission Mo has committed to as his personal moonshot, a mission to deliver his happiness message to 10 million people around the world.
