Powerful Success Lessons
from Africa’s Big Cats.”

You’re looking for a high-energy, high content speaker who will set the critical tone in opening your conference or leave your audience excited and ready to grow after closing it.  Your speaker’s message has to stick and inspire.  You cannot afford to have a Conference Keynote Speaker who is forgotten straight after walking off the stage.

Audiences don’t forget The Big Cat Guy.  Or his message.  His is not a speech.  It’s an experience. And each keynote is different.  Because every event and every organization is different.

I really enjoyed the presentation on the wildlife in Africa because I believe that in every business there are the same challenges as in the wild. Lorne explained in very clear terms how nature’s species have survived in extremely hostile environments. These lessons of the African bush are relevant to every business … I think that if business people were to adopt those fundamental paradigms in their own businesses, they would be much more successful. Lorne’s lessons from the ruthless plains of Africa should be applied to every business. Well done Lorne!

Lorne’s talk relates to a lot of what we do in the elite sports world.  I thought it was a fantastic opportunity … how he related to what we have now on the cutting edge of elite sport. From my side, it was fantastic! It really made things real. Something that I could relate to as a coach but also someone that works with a lot of high-performance. Fantastic and really glad I got the opportunity!

I work with Eyegym. We train the eyes and the brain. We work on decision making and I think out of Lorne’s talk I realized again that we are actually designed to, like animals to hunt, look far and be aware of what’s happening around you … The talk from Lorne really reminded me again of those basic skills that we’ve got inside… that we can awaken again.

Christi Botha


What really stood out for me was the quality of Lorne’s photos and specifically his stories … and new angles on animals and how they work together and how we can borrow those lessons to our world. What really stood out for me was how Lorne’s game ranger experience of how you can tell stories… that apply to you in your life, and the metaphor … To see the photos of that, the talk really came alive to me … and to add the detail that’s relevant and extract the story in the metaphor really was very powerful. I enjoyed it very much!
