Make business sense

Happy employees are productive employees that give a company and an organization a positive image. Laughing employees achieve more, have less stress and are less ill. Scientific research has proven that laughing helps to convert negative stress into positive stress. Therefore you will feel better, both spiritually and physically.

SMILE AT WORK organizes LAUGHTER SESSIONS and LAUGHTER WORKSHOPS.  A laughter session is a unique concept of Unconditional Laughter, according to this; anyone can laugh for No Reason. It does not rely on jokes, humor or comedy. It initiates laughter as a form of an exercise in a group, and as the Laughter Sessions progress; Laughter becomes real and contagious. This results in multiple health benefits, primarily increasing the supply of oxygen and boosting the immune system. It energizes and recharges the metabolism, making one feel fresh and energetic.

Regarding the laughter session, nothing then good comments from all the participants. This was a welcome entertainment after a meeting of 3 hours. The laughter session was intense, super, relaxing, laughing, surprisingly, particularly with regard to timing, amusing. We enjoyed it! Certainly something to be repeated!

Our request was a challenge for Geert. But he did a wonderful job. Five days, he organised a laughter session six times a day for about 15 people. Afterwards everyone was extremely enthusiastic. They were happy and relaxed, despite of the straining sales training. Thanks, Geert!

Joerie Welslau, Stihl

A relaxing exercise in which you learn to put things in perspective, move and come together as a team.

Stress solutions

Laughter is the most efficient, cheap and simple remedy against stress. It’s a perfect tool for “Stress management”. Laughter makes the blood vessels swell and stimulates your blood circulation. Moreover, it relaxes the muscles and sets endorphins free which counter the excess of adrenaline and cortisol related to stress.

Laughter sessions help you to relax and put things in perspective. Negative stress is converted into positive stress. You will feel better both spiritually and physically.
If you wish, we can explore the phenomenon stress more extensively during the workshop and explain how laughter can be a remedy.

Brand activations & product launches

Looking for an original way to place your Brand in a cheerful, ludic, hilarious or funny way? Then we would like to think with you to make this a great success!

In 2015, Geert participated in the new Coca Cola campaign with the new baseline "Choose Happiness.


Coca-Cola had the idea to support their “Choose happiness” campaign with a local market stunt. With the insight ‘happiness starts with a smile’, they created the Coca-Cola laughmob concept.
In order to have the biggest impact, it was their mission to make people laugh in an environment where they rarely smile. They choose the metro to do so. Watch the video to see how we turned subway faces into smiling ones!

The results on social media were mind-blowing: 
+1.500.000 views
+12.000 likes
+10.000 shares
+1.000 comments
