About Frederika Roberts BSc(Hons) PGCE CertRP MPSA

Frederika is a Professional Speaker, certified Laughter Yoga Leader and Co-Founder of the ‘RWS Resilience Wellbeing Success’ programme*.  Through her keynotes and workshops, she helps individuals and organisations by changing and challenging thinking and behaviour with very simple, easy-to-implement happiness and resilience techniques.

Peppered with a sprinkling of culinary references, gentle humour and a real zest for life, her sessions are insightful, thought provoking and emotionally charged, yet lively and upbeat. Frederika has worked in recruitment, education, marketing and food, and has set up and run small businesses.  As an expert in her field, she has been interviewed on TV (BBC Breakfast, ITV Calendar News), BBC and other radio stations all over the UK, and featured and quoted in various publications.  Frederika is also a guest blogger for Huffington Post UK and author of the book ‘Recipe for Happiness: 9 Essential Ingredients for a Happy Life’.

Born in Italy, of dual Italian and German nationalities, she grew up in Luxembourg, then moved to the UK in 1990 to study at the University of Bradford. After obtaining her BSc Honours in Business and Management, Frederika undertook post-graduate studies in education and became a qualified teacher.

Frederika helps:

      • Leaders ensure their employees are happy and resilient, resulting in more productive workplaces with lower staff turnover and absenteeism, and a culture of ‘bounce-back-ability’.
      • Individuals work on their own happiness and resilience, so that they can enjoy life more and be more successful in all aspects of their lives, bouncing back from setbacks and moving forward with a positive outlook.
      • Teachers to work on their own resilience and happiness so they are able to better support their pupils while also ensuring they have a good work/life balance themselves.
      • Children learn essential happiness and resilience techniques, understanding that everyone encounters obstacles in life but that it is possible to overcome these and thrive in all areas of life.

Frederika is available to deliver keynote speeches and lively, highly interactive workshops to businesses, not-for-profit organisations and schools (pupil sessions and teacher training / CPD days). Rather than have a list of ‘set’ keynote speeches and workshops, Frederika tailors the titles and contents of her sessions to her audiences.

*The RWS | Resilience Wellbeing Success Programme is a very successful programme for schools, which typically runs over 9-11 weeks, but can also be delivered as a bespoke half- or full-day workshop for businesses and not-for-profit organisations. 

My Specialist Subjects




Frederika gave a fascinating talk to the Giggleswick School sixth form last Thursday [20th Nov 2014] about her recipe for happiness. It was a very personal story about how she coped with a very difficult set of circumstances and went on to adopt a lifestyle which focuses on happiness, rather than any negative issues. The students were all highly engaged by her talk and many of them have gone on to do her happiness challenge. Frederika was highly professional but also very approachable and the student feedback from her talk has been excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending Frederika to other schools and her talk was certainly worth the fee.

Paul Adams, Teacher and Work Experience Coordinator at Giggleswick School

Frederika spoke at our 5th Brand Yorkshire business conference. The response from the delegates has been fantastic. Clearly by the comments on twitter and to me personally, these have shown that she truly inspired her audience. I would definitely recommend Frederika as a speaker for any audience.

Richard Norman, Managing Director at Brand Yorkshire

Frederika spoke at our CIPD Graduation event on the subject of Happiness. Her presentation was very well received and appropriate for our audience – Frederika was inspirational, warm and welcoming. I wouldn’t hesitate to ask her to present again at a similar event.

Julie Gordon, Managing Director, cHRysos HR Solutions Ltd

Frederika is a phenomenal speaker who by the title of her keynote alone packed the room of BBC staff. What Frederika has to say about ‘Recipe for Happiness’ is refreshing and helps view our experience of life through a fresh prism. Frederika is wholly engaging and has the talent of telling her story and her ‘Recipe for Happiness’ in such an engaging way. All of us in the audience were taken on a journey and touched with emotion both enlightening and endearing. Frederika is a very likeable person who is open about her personal story which helps you connect with her. As an event organiser Frederika was a pleasure to work with. She’s professional and always good at communicating. I’d definitely recommend Frederika to any of my colleagues in the BBC looking for an A Class speaker.

Toby Mildon, Project Manager, BBC

Booking Frederika was a smooth and easy process from start until finish, Frederika provided clear instructions on what she required on the day, kept me up-to-date with her travel arrangements and arrived promptly at the time she stated. The presentation was engaging and both energised and captivated the audience, who went away with some real simple and effective tips that will help them maintain a ‘Happy’ work/life balance.

I really enjoyed the talk. Really left me feeling like I could make a few small changes and see a big effect on my happiness. Ria Smith, Student at Imperial College London, following a Happiness Workshop during Wellbeing Week 2016

Ria Smith

I thought you should know that after your talk I wake up every day and think of being grateful for something in my life so my happiness levels have improved a lot. Thank you very much! Sofia, event attendee (testimonial received a few weeks after the event)


Frederika has a really engaging style. I really enjoyed listening to her speak today on the subject of happiness. I’ve taken away some really helpful tips & food for thought. She’s made me think differently. Thank you.
