Bringing Amazon Survival Skills to Business
What can leaders learn from a man who survived against all the odds in the Amazon Jungle? Yossi
Ghinsberg is a master storyteller with an epic story to share. Lost alone in the midst of the Amazon rainforest for three weeks, he not only survived, he found new meaning for his life and work. The author of the international bestseller, Jungle, now a major motion picture starring Daniel Radcliffe, Yossi was recently rated as one of the top ten speakers in the business. His 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 are mindbending 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™.

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.”

We look forward to an opportunity to work with you again in the future.”
