The Happy People Doha Business Club (HPD) celebrated its 5 year anniversary in style on May 9th with its first-ever Gala event, held at the Marsa Malaz Kempinski Hotel. This Gala marked a significant milestone for the community, founded on the principles of positivity, collaboration, and, above all, happiness.

Ann Williams Jangsell, the visionary founder of HPD, expressed the essence of the group, stating, "Happy People Doha Business Club, to me, is all about sharing experiences, spreading happiness, and being genuinely helpful—introducing contacts, offering service, and believing that kindness is a superpower."

Ann spearheaded the initiative five years ago, uniting a small group of individuals with a shared vision. Today, the HPD boasts over 250 members from more than 70 different nationalities, spanning various sectors, all bound together by their dedication to happiness, and helping to foster cross-industry business relations.

In a landscape often characterized by competition and division, the HPD stands out as a beacon of positivity, proving that happiness, personal connection, and helping on another. This Gala served as a testament to the strength of the HPD community and the transformative power of positivity. The success of the Gala would not have been possible without the invaluable contributions of esteemed partners and sponsors. From the enchanting ambiance created by Attraction Events to the exquisite floral arrangements by F&H Roses, every detail was meticulously curated to ensure a memorable evening.

Special recognition goes to Jade Consultancy Hub and Services, Gazelle Chocolate, Pearl Derma, Saemi Kim, and Massoun Insurance for their delightful contributions that added an extra touch of magic to the event.
Guests were treated to an array of experiences, including an interactive art piece by Seami Kim, a local artist, where they could express their thoughts on happiness. The evening also featured a raffle draw with nearly 150 exquisite gifts, generously provided by sponsors.

A highlight of the evening was the presence of distinguished ambassadors and representatives from various countries, including:
- Ambassador Gautam Bhattacharyya of Sweden to Qatar
- Ambassador Lulian Grigorit of Moldavia to Qatar
- Ambassador Ferdinand Lahnstein of the Netherlands to Qatar
- Ambassador Florence Tinguely Mattli of Switzerland to Qatar
- Ambassador Lillibeth Pono of the Philippines to Qatar
- Ambassador Pascual del Cioppo of Ecuador to Qatar

Their presence underscored the international significance of the HPD and its mission to promote happiness and collaboration across borders. The Happy People Doha Business Club looks forward to many more years of fostering joy, unity, and collaboration within the community.
