ABOUT US

Make Happy is a creative marketing and innovation consultancy

Who we are and how we work

Jonathan Bannister founded Make Happy in 2010 with the aim of making no organisation afraid of change and freeing up the ideas and creativity within each organisation.

We do this by bringing strategic thinking, complex problem-solving and creative facilitation to the heart of every business. Working with a team of sector experts, we work in partnership with our clients to help them solve their biggest problems and take advantage of their greatest opportunities.

Focus

We start by understanding what is the problem or opportunity you are facing and what you are looking to achieve from a facilitated workshop.

Strategy

Following an initial planning workshop with you where we block out the workshop, we write a detailed session plan blocking out the planned session.

Delivery

We can help with all aspects of the event or workshop including helping you find the perfect venue and bringing in co-facilitators for larger events.

Creativity

We underpin all this work by empowering your team to work more creatively and collaboratively.

Our people

Happiness is working in honest and open collaboration with our clients with small teams of senior, experienced facilitators working closely with marketing, innovation, creative, research and organisational experts.
