About Samantha &

                                                    Samantha Clarke - Happiness Consultant and Change-maker

                                                    Samantha Clarke - Happiness Consultant and Change-maker

The aim of Samantha & is to provide coaching and advisory services to founders, leaders and all those who manage people, on how to navigate the impact of technology on happiness at work, elevate emotional intelligence and build company culture, relationships and environments that support, retain and attract happy employees and teams. I'm also the founder of Growth & Happiness school, the home of innovative training programmes and online courses designed to help both individuals and corporates find more happiness at work in sustainable and measurable ways.

I have worn many hats and labels and now live by happier and mindful choices. My passions are a melting pot of psychology, philosophy, technology, happiness, wellbeing, cultures and people. It's my mission to help companies and individuals by giving advice on the key things they can do to make a big difference. I love to join the dots, be a catalyst for great ideas and support & inspire change.

For companies, I untangle sticky issues such as defining values and visions, crafting a 'happy' employee journey, cross-cultural, communication and relationship building issues across technology, company (start-up) culture design and conflict resolution to promote greater change and growth. I believe that building great businesses starts from the top and then a willingness to co-create with employees to design a more conscious, happier approach to work.

I eat, sleep and breath all facets of the tech and creative industries and deliver significant results in areas like start up leader, executive & ORSC team coaching & development and workshop facilitation

For individuals, I’m at my happiest delivering keynote speeches, masterclasses and workshops for companies and conferences, Cannes Lions, The Guardian, Soho House Group and as a faculty lecturer at The School of Life. I inspire individuals to make changes in diverse areas like; authentic leadership, managing stress, realising your potential, enhancing communication at work, building a portfolio career, presentation psychology, happiness at work, increasing emotional intelligence and confidence building.

You can also find me commentating on work happiness, relationships, culture, new-age People operations/HR, confidence and leadership in publications such as Stylist Magazine, Psychologies, Forbes, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Guardian Small Business Network, BBC Global News, BBC Radio 4, Evening Standard, City AM and Changeboard HR magazine
