How does the leopard thrive in a constantly changing and challenging landscape?

Just as every business situation presents a totally different set of variables and challenges, for Africa’s Big Cats, every hunt presents a whole new set of conditions and challenges, in a changed landscape.
The leopard is arguably the most adaptable of all large predators, found in habitats from mountains to desert, stretching from Africa all the way to Asia. What makes the leopard such a supreme hunter, able to thrive in and have a reach across so many different ecosystems?

Can you adapt when things change? What can you learn from the leopard on adaptability and resilience in the face of change?

In his Thriving in a Wild World™ presentations, Motivational Speaker Lorne Sulcas reveals the leopard’s success secrets you can apply to the change and challenges you face every day.

How is it possible for a lion to kill a buffalo seven times its weight?

Lions collaborate to form teams we call a ‘pride’ which allows them to synergise their efforts to be able to hunt the massive herbivores -wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, buffalo and in some cases even elephant-that the other cats can’t hunt. Their collaboration and synergy also allows them to defend a much larger or more prime territory, which in turn gives them access to prime habitat and resources.
In this way the lion can get results that the other felines can’t. Lions get exceptional results. But exceptional results can only come from exceptional teamwork and potency. So what is truly exceptional teamwork? What makes lions so potent?

What can your organisation learn from lions about what it takes to get seemingly impossible results?

The Big Cat Guy shares the potent Lessons from Lions™ that we can apply to get exceptional results.

How does the cheetah survive despite the massive competition from the larger, stronger predators?

Because the cheetah is built for speed not strength, it is right at the bottom of the totem pole of the large carnivores and subject to constant and brutal competition from the larger predators such as lions and hyenas.
With incredible speed, but limited stamina, the cheetah has to be very calculated and strategic in terms of opportunity selection and energy expenditure, and has to make its efforts really count. As a result, the cheetah has the highest ‘conversion rate’ of Africa’s three big cats: about 80% of cheetah’s attempts result in successful kills. Why is that? What makes the cheetah so efficient?

What can the cheetah teach us about what leadership, vision and opportunity have to do with surviving competition?

Lorne’s stories and message will imprint forever on your audience, the cheetah’s incredible keys to success.

Today I had the great pleasure of hearing Lorne’s motivational speech. He was an amazing storyteller. Truly captivating! I loved seeing the pictures and hearing the detailed stories about how he applies what he knows as a gamekeeper to business. I never thought that there would be a connection but it was really inspirational and really connected to me. I’ve definitely taken away some lessons that I’m going to apply to my business, which is pretty fabulous!

We do a lot of conferences every year,… in the US, Europe and South America, What I loved about Lorne’s presentation today, it was different and it was really exciting. Lorne was probably the best motivational speaker I’ve ever seen. We see a lot of these and the keynotes are just typically snoozefest and they’re really boring. But this was fantastic. I was texting my colleagues about how great it was during the presentation. It was absolutely incredible!

Strategy is what we use in football. Lorne taught us about exceptional teamwork that gives exceptional results and the Big Cats’ unique way of surviving in the jungle. I really, really value his input and his knowledge and all the key points he showed us. Now we are using it in sports. You realize that all these values and principles of success happen in the business environment… and in football and they’re happening in the wildlife! Unbelievable!
