Bringing Amazon Survival Skills to Business

Transformative Leadership Keynotes

What can leaders learn from a man who survived against all the odds in the Amazon Jungle?

Yossi’s survival skills for business are designed to shift a leader’s perspective and inspire them to always assume responsibility, taking their game to the next level. His energy is contagious – his insights mind-bending and counter-intuitive.

Leaders will take away:

  • Survival is not a negative. Survival is a desired state for the workplace, driving everyone to their peak performance.
Survival should be part of the work culture since survival is an intense competition where everybody wins, and no one loses.
  • Survival equals peak performance – peak performance of all faculties – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – all are at the top of their game and consolidated on one single purpose.
  • Survival is extremely efficient. The ‘secret sauce’ of survival is the realization that competition is a waste of energy and inefficient hence a poor survival strategy. A better, more efficient strategy is investing the energy in innovation, creating a Niche Monopoly™.
  • Niche Monopoly™ is nature’s secret weapon in generating greater yields with less effort. In niche monopolies you have no competition; no energy is wasted. The free energy can be invested in rewarding the team, giving back to society and investing in further innovation to maintain the edge of the Niche Monopoly™.

It's always a challenge to find speakers of the right caliber for these high profile events. Your story of survival against all odds was both fascinating and challenging. You possess the extremely rare gift of a great storyteller with the ability to create word pictures which capture the imagination of an audience and take them on a journey with you. We look forward to an opportunity to work with you again in the future.

After hearing Yossi speak last year at the Corporate Lunch, I felt he would be an ideal candidate to inspire and encourage our Sales Team to new heights and to push the boundaries. I am pleased to say that Yossi’s speech/presentation did achieve the desired result. Everyone who participated in the evening had nothing but glowing references and felt an enormous sense of exhilaration in recounting Yossi’s story. I would not hesitate to recommend him to other companies thinking of using him in a similar situation.

President, orthodontist
Australian society of orthodontist Yossi’s story is inspiring to everyone – it is a story about human survival. However, through his experiences, Yossi provides thought-provoking questions to understanding oneself and the purpose of life. He captivated the audience through his demonstration of strength and bravery, his path to self-discovery and his enthusiasm in story telling. We all have dreams and he brought alive the realisation that in order to achieve our dreams we have to make sacrifices. The sharing of his experiences has made a difference to each person in the audience and that is a very special talent to have.
Monica Saunders
Everyone is still on such high because the response to you was incredible. it is so important for our age group to hear first hand and from a positive point of view that any negative experience can be turned into a positive one – it is all within our power. You really brought that message home. ‘many people don’t get that opportunity until its too late to realise how special life is and that is why what you do is so special and you should honour your gift as much as possible. may God bless you with many healthy years so you can continue to grow in yourself and therefore teach others through your experiences.
