Susanna Halonen, also known as the Happyologist, is a happiness coach and writer. As a positive psychology practitioner, she uses the science of happiness and human performance to help people live a happy, passionate life. She shows how to demolish self-doubt, eliminate bad habits, embrace positive thinking and build a lifestyle to love.
As the author of 'Screw Finding Your Passion (It‘s Within You, Let‘s Unlock It)', she debunks the myth that you need to find and follow one passion in life, and instead shows how to live a more fulfilling life by living your whole life with passion. She is also a published researcher, TEDx speaker and a regular commentator in the media from the BBC to The Huffington Post.
Her happiness blog at Happyologist.co.uk has a loyal, engaged community of thousands.
Prior to becoming the Happyologist she worked for Sony on anything from product launches to sustainability projects to employee engagement initiatives. Whatever she was doing, she was always looking for ways to inject positivity and passion into her team and the people around her.
Her positivity also spreads into the sporting world where she competes in equestrian dressage with the ambition to compete in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
She is a popular keynote speaker using a mix of science, insightful stories and practical tips to offer a fresh perspective to happiness. Her talk topics range from individual happiness to happiness at work, from personal branding to building positive productivity habits, and from living a life of passion to overcoming the challenges of being a passionate entrepreneur.
