Once upon a time, an Aussie and a Brit found their purpose through helping people be the best leaders possible. John Barrett (from Australia) and David Wheatley (from England) worked together the first time beginning in 1996. In 2000, the stars aligned and it was the right time to launch a new leadership development company.

That company, Humanergy, is celebrating its 20th birthday today!

So why call it Humanergy (pronounced Hue-MAN-er-gee), you ask? It is a combination of the words “human” and “synergy,” because John and David realize that it really is people who power the greatness in organizations.

From a fledgling two-person business, incubated at the Battle Creek Chamber of Commerce (THANKS!), Humanergy now employs seven people. We’re all focused on delivering our TrueSuccess goals, which includes increasing the greater good in the world and delighting our clients.

We are grateful to those of you who’ve been a part of our journey. Stay tuned for more about how we will celebrate this milestone. In the meantime, what are you celebrating? Comment below or send us a message.
