Andy Cope describes himself as a qualified teacher, author, happiness expert and learning junkie. He has spent the last 10 years studying positive psychology, happiness and flourishing, culminating in a Loughborough University PhD thesis.
Andy Cope appreciates that his ‘Dr of Happiness’ label is terribly cheesy but it affords him an important media platform. In times of rising depression and an epidemic of ‘busyness’, Andy believes there has never been a more appropriate time to raise the happiness agenda.
He is a best-selling author, having written books such as ‘The Art of Being Brilliant’, ‘Be Brilliant Everyday’ and ‘The Art of Being a Brilliant Teenager’ (Capstone), which address how to be a happier, more motivated and positive person. He has penned a series for Crown House aimed at teachers, and also moonlights as a children’s author. Andy’s research feeds into a training course called ‘The Art of Being Brilliant’ which has been delivered to rave reviews all over the world.
He has a passion for motivation and positive psychology and is trying to influence people to think differently in order to be happier.
Andy has worked with some very large businesses, including Microsoft, DHL, Pirelli, Pfizer, Hewlett Packard, Astra Zeneca and IKEA. Recently, he has tailored his workshops to meet the needs of children and teachers and now delivers to audiences from age 8 upwards!
Using cutting edge content, all of Andys workshops are front-loaded with positive psychology to cultivate a ‘can-do’ attitude. He has a range of workshops such as The Art of Being Brilliant, The Art of Staying Brilliant, Brilliant Teams, Brilliant Leadership, and workshops on mindfulness and mind set.
