"Are you looking for a dry, staid, academic speaker?
Then Rania Badreldin is NOT your person!
Rania is infectious enthusiasm personified. She combines a grounding in the science of happiness and neurology with humor and love. Her presentations are irresistible!"

"As a happiness coach, it is important to walk the talk; otherwise, if there's a discrepancy between the two, even a child can spot it from a mile away. From the moment you meet Rania, you know that she's someone who walks the talk. She's authentic, creative and funny - and of course, happy! I'd highly recommend her as a speaker and coach."

"Rania was invited to speak at the University for Peace in Costa Rica during the Gross Global Happiness conference. This conference brought together a diverse group of professionals, all passionate about happiness and how to bring more of it to the world. She gave a wonderful, interactive workshop entitled ‘Love as the Key to Individual and Global Happiness.’ Not only did she impart interesting content that got participants up and moving around for a ‘learning by doing’ experience, she also emitted an amazing, positive energy that was contagious to all in the room. She was able to balance a level of professionalism with a level of vulnerability that really made the audience open up, share their own stories and walk away feeling connected to the content and peers. This is a difficult balance to achieve for many presenters, and Rania did so beautifully. I would recommend her as a facilitator for other events."

Rania presented a session on “Goal setting, and creating a life map” at the New Zealand Residence for participants of the “She Leads” young women’s leadership programme, which the New Zealand Embassy collaborated on with a number of other Cairo based missions. Her engaging and energetic style was very well received by the young women in attendance. She was well prepared, including with a number of activities to keep up the pace during the training session, and get people thinking outside the box. This was the second She Leads session Rania had hosted and it was clear that she had built a warm rapport with the participants who were very happy to see her again.
