“There are three reasons I work for The Energy Project. The first is that Tony inspired me to change my own life and for the last 12 years, I’ve benefited in dozens of ways by embracing his concepts. The second is that we’ve positively changed the performance and satisfaction of thousands of people and their families through our work. The third is that we’re on a mission to positively impact the world and create a new way of working. We need to evolve to benefit from incredible advances in technology, rather than being in thrall to them.”
