"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."

"Rania is the voice we may not even realize that we need. Amidst the "noise" of internet motivational and inspirational videos, Rania's words stand out as a voice of true compassion and genuine happiness that every single person, no matter how young or old, rich or poor, amateur or professional of an individual they may be, needs to hear.
She recently gave the keynote address for CAC's National Honor Society Induction ceremony and her messaging couldn't have been more perfect for these stressful, uncertain and seemingly helpless times. Both teenagers and adults alike messaged me after Ms. Badreldin's speech and said that it was "so perfect" and indeed it was. Her words moved people and will keep a lasting impression on those new inductees as they reflect upon this event for years to come."

"Thank you and deepest appreciation for participating in our Hayati wellness campaign! The session was very much needed in the current pandemic situation, everyone is asking themselves "How do I still find my Happiness?" A multicultural audience attended, were very engaged and expressed utmost satisfaction after the session. I personally liked how you touched on real life experiences and gave practical examples, it also gave me personal reflection time which I truly appreciate as a psychologist."

"It's both my pleasure and honor to acknowledge Rania for giving the "Coping with Change" talk last Sunday, 16th October, at The Community Services Association (CSA), during The Fundamentals of Living in Egypt orientation seminar (designed to hep newcomers/expatriates assimilate to their new life in Egypt). Her candid style and humor won over the attendees the moment she began speaking and her insights about the nature of happiness were very relatable and interesting. Overall, her talk was a great addition to our program and we would love to have her back during our next FLE session."
