TOGETHER WE CAN
Happiness Co was inspired by the devastating loss of Julian Pace’s father and best friend - both taking their own lives. This was followed by the death of his cousin in the same 2 year period. Today, the movement is a tribute to his family and others going through life’s challenges whilst overcoming hurdles. Founding the company in 2017, he’s spent many years sharing his story and devoting his time to helping others find happiness. He’s worked with thousands of individuals, companies and schools around the world and continues to share his message and mission. He’s a world-renowned speaker, who’s travelled to all corners of the globe, using a mixture of story-telling and practical tools to assist others in finding happiness or rediscovering it. Julian is a firm believer in the right to happiness and the responsibility on us all to achieve it. The award-winning business proves he’s doing something right.
The long road back to Happiness
Happiness Co is on a mission to impact people’s lives and encourage others to make the world a better place. We work in the space of pre-emptive mental health and focus on an everyday approach.
Attempted suicide rates are increasing year after year, and feelings of isolation and loneliness are reaching a breaking point. We are an action over awareness company, and while we know all too well the alarming statistics around suicide, we put our energy into giving others the tools to recognise their emotions and manage their triggers.
We are an impact-based brand, offering online programs for individuals as well as live workshops, programs and events. Working with schools and corporate teams, we give people a platform to promote kindness & contribution.
Our movement is based on the model; “head of a business, heart of a charity” and the driving force behind our success is a focus on happiness. We promote connection, kindness and contribution to the world.

Beginning work life as a kids sports facilitator, he stayed at Jungle Sports for just over 10 years. Whilst there, he developed nationally successful programs and won several awards for facilitation in his time as their national manager.
Moving from kids to big kids, he took on the State Manager role at Corporate Challenge Events where he led team-building facilitator teams that were renowned in the industry for their own positive culture. Helping grow that business through relationship building and client retention, he decided it was perfect timing to bring his experience to Happiness Co as it expands its reach into workplaces around the world.
He has a successful podcast, works in sports commentary for ABC radio and hosts events around Australia with crowds of 10,000+, through his MC'ing side of life. Away from Happiness HQ, Robbie plays footy for his beloved Wembley Football Club, enjoys hanging with friends and family and devotes time to leading a volunteer team at Radio Lollipop. There is no doubt your team will benefit from programs facilitated by Robbie.
