Jenn Lim - Chief Happiness Officer (CHO)
Jenn Lim, is the CEO and CHO (Chief Happiness Officer ) of Delivering Happiness, a company she and Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos.com) co-founded to inspire science-based happiness, passion and purpose at work, home and in everyday life.
Jenn has been a consultant with Zappos from its start-up days in 2003 to the several billion-dollar business it is today.
Jenn’s experience with Zappos, combined with her development of scientific frameworks for workplace happiness, created the evidence that happier employees = happier customers = successful companies (and meaningful lives).

- Does having a higher purpose matter for your organization?
- Ten steps for a values-driven culture
- Creating a culture action plan based on Progress, Control and Connectedness
- Learn the aspects of authenticity, listening and clear communication

Watch as They Share From Their Experiences:
A Mentor Experience
“I ran into one of the most successful CEOs in America walking down the street … He said ‘I’m going to mentor you.’"
Managing Through Crisis
“When we had to downsize … we communicated with our team so they understood where we were financially, who we had to let go and why we had to let them go.”
Who You Know… or What You Know
“When someone calls and asks for a favor, immediately say yes … Someday you will need a favor.”
Women’s Business Enterprise
“I use my women-owned and minority-owned certification sparingly and strategically.”
“Sometimes I’m going to be at the birthday party, and sometimes on a business trip. And because I’m on the business trip, we’ll get to go to Hawaii for the next birthday.”
