A "Positive Business Conference" is happening this week at the Ross School of business on the University of Michigan campus.  I spoke to the "Chief Happiness Officer," Jenn Lim & Co-Founder of Delivering Happinessthat will be involved in the event.

This is the conference's second annual event held  in Ann Arbor throughout the next two days from Thursday, May 14th, to Friday, May 15th, 2015. The conference is an effort to "explore practical approaches to building positive businesses" with many members of the local and international business community.

More about Jenn
One of her creations, the Zappos Culture Book, has become a global symbol of how companies can use happiness as a business model to increase productivity and profitability.

In 2010, Jenn led the launch and management of Tony’s first book (Delivering Happiness) which has sold over 550,000 copies worldwide and hit #1 on bestsellers lists like the New York Times and USA Today. It was voted one of the best business books by NPR, Inc. Magazine and the Wall Street Journal.

Delivering Happiness has evolved from a book to a bus tour, and now a company and global happiness movement represented by people from 110 countries. Today, she’s dedicated to growing the Delivering Happiness movement so we can all pay happiness forward–knowing if we create happier companies/communities/cities, we can make this a happier world.
