About Us

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to contribute to the evolution of humanity by enabling people to transform their way of thinking, their way of being and their organizations. Our talent is to unlock their full potential for their business and amplify the impact they have in the world.

Our Name

The word Asterys derives from the name of a family of plants, the Asteraceae, to which the Dandelion belongs. Its spores are transported by the wind and reach large distances. We find in the symbol of the spore, symbolized by the ‘y’ in our logo, our intention to sow the seeds of transformation at the individual, team and organizational level in order to create the conditions in which individuals and organizations can thrive and express their innate potential.
