Chasing Happiness and Why Other People Matter

with Ryan Shelton & Dr Emily Musgrove

Off the back of a sold-out 2023 live tour of The Imperfects podcast, one of the show’s co-creators, Ryan Shelton, will hit the Ready24 stage with podcast regular and Clinical Psychologist Dr Emily Musgrove, to talk Positive Psychology and the never-ending search for that elusive thing we call “happiness”.

The headline? What you think will bring you happiness and what will bring you happiness are likely two vastly different things.

Drawing on personal experiences and stories shared on the podcast, Emily and Ryan will unpack what positive psychology is all about, while sharing tangible actions you can take to shift your perspective to inject more optimism and happiness into your life and the lives of those around you, based on the overarching principle that Other People Matter.

This is a session you don’t want to miss.
