It’s creating something from nothing where EVERYONE benefits – not just a few. Come join us to support the 2020 group of OBO 100 innovators and their initiatives, and change the world forever.


#82 Obo: Connecting Humans – with Dev Tandon

These are some of the questions Dev seeks to explore with the ‘Obo’ movement. With no money, he has already inspired a team to help him build a brand, write a book and design Obo’s first products.

We talk:

  • His moment of inspiration while meditating on a flight to Mexico
  • Starting meetings with silence
  • The broader human project to build ‘awakened’ systems for business
  • His radical approach for hiring
  • Why putting money to one side has it chasing us

“Start your meetings with a moment of silence!”

“Realign the prioritization of business calls to be 90% about human connection!”

“Help your employees get into their flow!”

“To get the best from people, lead them from zones of excellence to their unique zones of genius!”
