Why does Humanergy exist?

The world needs a new kind of leader — People who are passionately committed to the greater good and who have the character, wisdom and competence to make a difference.

Humanergy was founded in 2000 by John Barrett and David Wheatley. They wanted to help people transform themselves and those with whom they work. Humanergy has now expanded to a diverse team of facilitators who thrive on designing and delivering the right stuff to unlock potential.
