Henry Stewart

In 1987, Henry Stewart was Finance Officer for The News on Sunday, a tabloid newspaper with £6.5m in the bank. Six weeks later, the publication was bankrupt. Determined to learn from this, Henry set up Happy Computers a year later.

Following a combination of experience, revaluation counselling and some reading, he drew together the key principles of training and work that forms the backbone of Happy today.

Happy is now recognised as one of the UK’s best places to work, listed as one of the 20 Best Workplaces in the UK by the Financial Times and the Great Place to Work Institute.

As well as being CEO of Happy, Henry is the author of ‘the Happy Manifesto’, outlining 10 core principles for a happy workplace. In 2009, Henry was listed as one of the top 50 most influential business thinkers in the world by the Guru Radar of Thinkers.
