Happy Economics

Our May Book of the Month is “ Happy Economics: Why the Happiest Workplaces are the most Successful” by Lord Mark Price – businessman, speaker and founder of WorkL.


Happiness at work matters. But what does happiness mean? How can managers measure it and have more if it? And what happens to organizations when they get happiness right?

Ask anyone. Happiness and wellbeing are important for all organizations, because they undeniably lead to economic happiness and financial success for everyone involved. But how does happiness drive growth and how should business leaders develop happier companies?

In Happy Economics, business expert Mark Price clearly demonstrates why the opportunity represented by happiness is huge for businesses. Using real world examples of those organizations who have got it right, he explains what happy economics is, why happiness metrics matter, connects high happiness with high performance, explores how to create happy teams and he creates a corporate happiness plan that can be used by any business. The book will be published in September 2024.

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.

Matthew Fisher and I have worked together for many number of years. I have always found Matt to be honest, good natured and willing to work hard always carefully selecting the best appearances to suit my personality and lifestyle. The work Matthew has delivered for me over the years has varied from schools, colleges, attending film premiers, guest speaking  to name a few all of which I have lots of memories and thoroughly enjoyed.
