Festival Of Happiness – Introduction to The Festival Of Happiness
Though the festival is free we ask for you to donate via our Just Giving page. All donations will be split between two fantastic charities – Nabs and Born Equal
A recent survey by Opinium into the mental health and wellbeing of agency people found that 96% of marcomms professionals had experienced some aspects of poor mental health in the last year. We will share the top line findings of that research report and introduce our three-day Festival of Happiness programme.
