LORNE'S BLOG

Adapt or die.

The leopard’s incredible adaptability enables it to thrive in all kinds of terrain, including some of the harshest, extremely seasonal or ‘feast or famine’ type of environments, in which others simply cannot survive. In a changing environment, like we all find ourselves in daily, how adaptable are you or your business?

For Africa’s great beasts, the sudden onset of seasonal changes can literally change the landscape overnight.  If they don’t adapt, they die.  That the business landscape in which we find ourselves will change, is a given.  We also know how quickly that can happen.  And if we’re reacting, we’re too late.  Like the leopard, we need to be prepared, and nimble enough to navigate into any business terrain.

Testimonials

  • Lorne spoke with warmth, passion and engagement. He had me captivated on each word. His enthusiasm and love for these animals was evident in the powerful lessons he had observed and the way he connected with the audience and portrayed them back to us. I also really enjoyed his ease of presentation. I would recommend Lorne for any business presentation looking for that something different or African feel. Well done Lorne – you have a meaningful message.

    DR. BARBARA JOHNSON – C.E.O., LEADERSHIP DIMENSIONS, SOUTH AFRICA
  • Again I have to compliment you on the wonderful presentation you gave at our conference this year– thoroughly enjoyable and extremely useful in assisting me in motivating my team. Not a day has passed since the conference that I haven’t referred in some way to the behaviours you shared with us in the wild, in reminding my team how to stay – Hungry – Focused and work as a Real Team.  Thank you Lorne! You definitely have a lasting impact on your audience.  Dallas, who you met in the front row, his feedback about your session was: ‘I just have one word: WOW!

    BELINDA-LEE BELLAGARDA - NATIONAL ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, CAPE COOKIES, SOUTH AFRICA
  • I heard Lorne speak and was so impressed that I invited him to do his keynote presentation for the Cape Chapter and later at the National Convention of the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa. We were thoroughly impressed with the combination of his story telling, wonderful photography, teaching about wild life and then the application of this story to our business lives. He presents simple but powerful lessons in the most entertaining manner. Highly recommended.

    CHARLOTTE KEMP – 2015 NATIONAL CONVENTION CONVENOR, P.S.A.S.A., SOUTH AFRICA
  • Thank you Lorne for the opportunity to experience your presentation. As Manager of H.R. Education for Bank One, Arizona, I have had many opportunities to hear keynote speakers. Your presentation was potent and unique in its subject and its style and your message will stay with us long after your delivery. Your ability to translate pertinent concepts to the daily world of business was exciting as well as deeply thought provoking, and your amazing wildlife photographs added tremendous impact. For companies looking to examine the rapidly changing environment, your presentation is a must.

    MICHAEL YOUNG - VICE PRESIDENT, BANK ONE, ARIZONA, U.S.A.
  • What a truly inspiring experience it was to have been part of Lorne’s Team Excellence program this year. Our full staff team of sixty people enjoyed a programme of discovery, fellowship and critical thought, at the end of which we left feeling inspired, motivated and, above all, like a high powered team ready for any challenge. Lorne’s easy manner allowed the session to proceed at our pace and ensured that all our needs were met. His insight and understanding of the nature of our “people” business is remarkable and he was able to get one and all to look inward and forward with a clear understanding of others in our team. A truly life changing experience that I am prepared to recommend most highly to those teams lucky enough to have Lorne as a speaker and facilitator. You certainly won’t regret your investment. It has already more than paid off for us.
