Beyond Happiness


author. ceo. founder. Meet Jenn

Meet Jenn

Jenn Lim wears a lot of hats — literally and figuratively. She’s a bestselling author and a top-rated keynote speaker who’s had the privilege of sitting on the Global Happiness Council of Work & Wellbeing and working with hundreds of companies — from Fortune 500s and Best Places to Work to startups and governments.

Jenn’s approach to leadership is not for the faint of heart. She speaks the truth powered by a real-talk style that doesn’t shy away from tough topics, cuts through the fluff, and gets to what matters most. Her authentic approach and eons of experience in people, culture, and org design give her the street cred to back up her purpose of nurturing fulfilling lives through the work/life choices we make every
day. And yet, despite her reputation as a “global workplace expert,” Jenn remains grounded, down to earth, and refreshingly weird.
