Adapt or die.

Home » 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.

  • Thank you Lorne.  Your talk went down extremely well with the team – everyone I spoke to loved it and found great value in the messages.

  • Dear Lorne, thank you for a most informative and thought provoking keynote address on Thriving in a Wild World. We were most impressed by your expert knowledge of the animal behaviour and the way that you made it relevant to the business world. In very simple yet fascinating terms you refocused our minds on often forgotten business principles, giving us a new sense of direction in these often difficult economic times. This “back to basics” philosophy is just what every business needs from time to time to adapt.

    BELINDA-LEE BELLAGARDA - NATIONAL ENTERPRISE DEVELOPMENT MANAGER, CAPE COOKIES, SOUTH AFRICA
  • Lorne, I wanted to thank you so much for your Bushveld Lessons session on team effectiveness. It was everything I thought it would be and more. Your stories were incredible in terms of what you’ve been able to observe and how you apply it to professional concepts in a relevant and colorful way. The analogies were exciting and very meaningful, and I loved your sense of humor and the great rappore you had with the people there. I’m sorry for the people who were not able to attend because they missed out on a really engaging and innovative learning opportunity. Lorne, you are a breath of fresh air. I really hope that there will be some opportunities in the future to work together in any way that presents itself. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart.
