In this episode, we get to share a joyful conversation with Dr. Manoj Krishna. 

Manoj grew up in India and built a highly successful career as a spine surgeon before, following a relationship breakdown, deciding to devote his life to helping others understand themselves, their actions and their emotions. He has gone on to design and launch one of the world’s most exciting wellbeing and personal development apps, HappierMe. 

We discuss his own life, his motivations for the work he does now and what we can all do to help our young people live meaningful and positive lives, where collaboration, understanding and human wisdom is front and centre.
