PWN Amsterdam brings you happiness. Do we just say it? No, we do it!

On October 8th we learned why Thriving versus Surviving is so important to our well-being. Rens ter Weide, owner of Energy Strategy, shared with us the ‘science of happiness’ in an interactive session hosted by THNK School for Creative Leadership in Amsterdam.

With the combination of Rens’ energetic smile and his happiness message, PWN Amsterdam guests and members experienced positivity soon after he took the floor. Questions abounded and his parting advice – show our gratefulness to those who count in our life – resonated with all.

Check the event pictures to see how much inspiration was in the air.


If you’d like to know how you can be happier but you missed this event, you can still follow Rens’ happiness tips here: Thriving vs Surviving Tips.

Our thanks go again to Rens ter Weijde from Energy Strategy and THNK School of Creative Leadership
