Happy Space Podcast
Welcome to the Happy Space® Podcast where we explore the intersection of productivity & inclusivity through the lens of a highly sensitive productivity coach, speaker, and brand collaborator - that's me!
Tune in for conversations with authors, culture-shapers, space designers, and creators of products, services, and customer experience as we highlight astonishing contributions tempting a more tender world.
We know that diversity leads to richer results, so let’s accept that #productivityispersonal and commit to designing with greater respect for humanity.
I aim to leave you with ideas to better support your colleagues, customers, community, and not least of all, yourself and those who matter most. For, everyone, including you, deserves a Happy Space.
