Event Speakers

Dr Andy Cope

Dr Andy Cope

Andy is a qualified teacher, wellbeing expert and ‘recovering academic’. His Loughborough University PhD was 12 years in the making and he revels in the irony that his thesis on human flourishing actually ended up making him miserable. The reward for grinding out his PhD is that Andy gets to call himself a ‘Doctor of Happiness’. Don’t worry, he’s socially aware enough to understand that it’s a terribly cheesy title, but a notch above the socially unacceptable alternative, ‘Doctor Feelgood’. In a nutshell, Andy is exactly the opposite of all the other doctors you’ve ever encountered. While they’ve been trained to work out what’s wrong with you, Andy is focused on the total opposite; what’s right with you, what makes you come alive and how can you be at your best more often. Andy’s books are frequently on the best-sellers list. ‘The Art of Being Brilliant’, ‘Shine’, ‘The Little Book of Emotional Intelligence’ and ‘Zest’ have all topped the personal development charts. ‘Happiness Route Map’ was nominated as The Independent’s best self-help book of the year. He’s not done yet; 2020 sees the publication of ‘How to be a Well Being’ and ‘A Girl’s Guide to Being Fearless’. In a bizarre leap of quantum reality, Andy is also a best-selling children’s author. His ‘Spy Dog’ series has sold in excess of a million copies worldwide. He’s not quite sure how that happened, but he promises it’s true. He is able to console himself in the knowledge that you might not have heard of him but your children and grandchildren surely have.
