Are you the happiest person in Singapore?

The search for Singapore’s happiest person is on.

In conjunction with “The New Science of Happiness & Well Being Conference” being held from 16 – 17 April 2008 at Singapore Expo, a leadership consultancy firm, Global Leadership Academy, is looking for the happiest person in Singapore.

Global Leadership Academy Pte Ltd (GLA), a Singapore-based leadership-consulting firm, is launching the first-ever Search For Singapore’s Happiest Person, a two-week campaign starting on 16th March and ending on 30th March. The Search is held in conjunction with The New Science of Happiness and Well-Being conference which is taking place on the 16 – 17 April 2008 at Singapore Expo and Convention Centre.

If you meet the following criteria, you may just be this person!

1. Singapore citizens above 18 years of age.
2. Happy smiling disposition – others feel good to be around them
3. Ability to be happy no matter what life presents them with
4. Has a strong sense of community and belonging – family and friends
5. Stays consistently happy – not up one moment and down the next
6. Contributes to society by bringing happiness to others

Any Singaporean, Singapore PR or resident of Singapore of any age, can nominate a Singapore citizen for the title of Singapore’s Happiest Person 2008. Anyone nominating a candidate should write a short description (300 and 1,000 words) on why their nominee is a model of happiness. Nominations via email should be sent to by midnight 30th March. More information can be found here.

According to the official press release, Singapore being voted one of the most stressful places to live in has prompted them to search for this search for happiness.

Meanwhile the conference will be open to public via ticket sales but unfortunately I am unable to find any such details online. Even the Singapore Expo link is display errors. What can we learn from a conference about the science of happiness and well-being? Perhaps a lot. I am very curious to find out who the happiest person in Singapore is. Surely not one of us who’s caught up in the rat race. Which enlightened soul would this be? Some how I imagine a white haired grandpa or grandma who lives the simple life. What do you think the happiest person in Singapore would be like? I can’t wait to find out!
