The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) announced the keynote speakers who will share their findings in the ‘Science of Happiness’ at the conference on October 9-11. The idea of the “science of happiness” has become a topic of interest in recent years, measured by a myriad of factors and debuted in studies such as the UN’s World Happiness Report and The Gallup-Sharecare Well-Being Index. The lineup for the conference features various experts who each have a unique perspective on the topic based on their individual studies.

The keynote speakers include Jan-Emmanuel De Neve, Mohamad (Mo) Gawdat, Silvia Garcia, and Nancy Etcoff.

Jan-Emmanuel De Neve, Ph.D., is associate professor of economics and associate editor of the World Happiness Report. De Neve has studied the depths of the correlation between various aspects of the business industry and the role they have on overall employee happiness.
