Fresh off hosting a special addition of The Joy Masterclass – where participants are trained over eight hours in the fundamentals of happiness and human flourishing research integrated with major faith traditions – at Yale University on Friday, December 01, 2017, media entrepreneur and chief executive officer of RED, Chude Jideonwo is set to host the second edition of the larger, more immersive experience ‘The Joy Congress’.
“I was so blessed by the feedback in New Haven, from the community of academics, students and professionals confirming that this is a universal message,” Jideonwo said. “But the heart of this assignment beats on the continent, especially in West Africa, so I am very excited to be returning home after a semester at Yale to share what I have learnt, through my personal 17-year story.”
The event, which includes worship, teachings and a robust question and answer session will host hundreds of people who will learn, in community, the skills, perspectives and practices to help build resilience, transcend adversity and find joy.
The theme is: ‘Is it possible to be happy every single day?’
Jideonwo will also share details of his new assignment, based on his research from the Maurice Greenberg World Fellowship, to be launched officially in January.
Date: Saturday, 16 December 2017
Time: 9am – 4pm
Venue: #3 Remi Olowude Street, by 2nd Lekki Roundabout, Lagos.
