Work is Changing. We need to change too.

The nature of work is changing and the organisations that we work in need to change too. Many people would agree that happy, motivated workers are key to the future of Australian business, but how do we make this happen in practice?

Dare Festival Melbourne was an event bringing inspiring and innovative ways to advance workplace happiness to build more effective organisations, from speakers across the region and the world.

Dare Festival originated in Antwerp, Belgium. It arose from the Happy Melly Network, a global network of organisations in pursuit of happiness for workers.

Together, we sought answers to questions like:

  • How can I change my organization to be more productive, creative, and engaging  for everybody involved?
  • How do I get the courage to change things?
  • What does the future look like?
  • Why do I do this everyday?
