Jenn Lim is a global workplace expert, bestselling author, speaker, executive coach and the CEO and Cofounder of Delivering Happiness [DH], a company that grows purpose-driven organizations with more profitable and sustainable approaches to business.

Jenn draws on her decades of experience in company culture and strategy to take her visionary ideas and turn them into practical frameworks, actions and behaviors.
