  • When we are happy at work, we are more motivated to engage and contribute.
  • the most engaged workers “come up with most of the innovative ideas, create most of a company’s new customers and have the most entrepreneurial energy. - Gallup’s recently released annual State of the American Workplace study on employee engagement. - http://www.benefitspro.com/2013/06/25/most-americans-hate-their-jobs-gallup-finds
  • All throughout history, collaborative communities have changed the world: Agile movementKraftwerk – began as part of a community in the Zodiac club in Berlin.The Zodiac was a place where musicians could get together and experiment with different sounds and technologies. The free atmosphere attracted people from a variety of scenes (free jazz, krautrock, etc) and inspired new hybrids of music and performance styles. The Zodiac became a “hive of activity” and was at the center of “the blooming of German music at its peak”.I will elaborate further on what are the ingredients that create collaborative communities.
  • What is Happy Melly? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUTcvcWssnQ
  • Happy Melly is a business that brings great ideas to knowledge workers. The goal of Happy Melly is to turn work into a great and gratifying experience.
  • Our core business is licensing of courseware and games;
  • We also work with writers and designers to produce, distribute and translate of books and videos;
  • We also help with the development of web sites and apps;
  • Weconnect creators of courseware to facilitators, and facilitators to organizers. In short, we grow a network for people to bring great ideas to unhappy workers.
  • Happy Melly is on a mission to create an inspiring network of people enabling each other to do great things.WHY JOIN US? You share our purpose You share our values: freedom, transparency, humor, and systems thinkingto run experiments with learning organizations in a supportive environment
  • Maarten is starting a Happy Melly Experiments program, to validate other ideas, lean startup style. It’s a system that not only helps emerge ground-breaking ideas but it also creates a pipeline of services thatcan help move ideas to implementation in a scalable business, Lean Startup style. We believe that experiments are at the core of Happy Melly. De-risking those experiments - on whatever level - enables more people to pursue their own happiness.You can call it an ecosystem, an incubator, a playground, a way for you to experiment with your idea in a safe-to-fail environment, Lean Startup style. De-risking ideas is a key enabler to pursuing your dreams. Having an idea for a new HM Brand is totally different than wanting to run a personal experiment. A personal experiment is like offering a house on Airbnb, we just need to bring together supply and demand. While creating a new HM Brand is much more complicated. HM Brands need to go through more steps before they are ready to become a scalable business. From ie. pitching the HM Brand idea to our CEO, creating an mvp, shipping and validating that mvp to a subset of our stakeholders, tweaking it, and doing a full roll-out.
  • Happy Melly Express!Our aim is to encourage self-publishing in a new way. By providing services the self-publishing websites and companies that are already out there do not offer. We help curate, select, nurture and develop ideas together with the community you, as a writer, are part of. In other words; HM Express helps you to reach an audience, to find the professionals who can support you and to make the book available to everyone who is interested in the knowledge you want to share.
