Science Pub - Being Happy and Productive at Work

Doors open at 5:00pm.  Most Science Pubs fill quickly, so come early for food, drink, and to get a seat!

Science Pub is open to ages 21+, or minor with adult.

$5 suggested cover charge

Since the doors open at 5 pm, I would appreciate if some of you could show up early to help safe seats for the people that come later! Please mention in your RSVP if you are able to be there around 5 pm.

Grounded in solid scientific data, this award-winning presentation delivers steps everyone can act on to be happier on the job. Studies show that happier people are healthier and more productive, creative, insightful, engaged, and resilient.

This presentation covers dozens of actionable techniques to increase job happiness, organized around the themes of goals, relationships, and attitude.

    Loved it. Great venue, excellent information. Brain science is one of my favorite topics, and the Bagdad is a beautiful venue. Being able to have a vodka-diet at the same time? PRICELESS!

      Chanel, that's why I go out of my way everytime to make everyone aware that the Bagdad occasionally "sells" out! Sorry you were not able to make it!

      Yup, I was 3 people from the door, when it sold out. As I am new here, I didn't realize I would be parking blocks away, and so didn't factor in enough time for that too!

    Scott did an excellent job presenting his material, despite facing major media difficulties during the beginning of the event. Another full house for OMSI, and the Bagdad theater!
