Following the success of her book, Malene Rydahl wishes to extend to the corporate world her knowledge of well-being and engagement.

Studies have observed that a vast majority of employees around the world are not engaged in their work. This results in high staff turn-over, increased sick leave and above all lack of creativity, innovation and productivity for companies.
