Testimonial Motivational Speaker Lorne Sulcas The Big Cat Guy - 48“I was blown away by Lorne when I saw him speak. He has humour, real stories, his stunning wildlife photography and a superb message in his presentation. His expert knowledge and how he shares this is amazing… I am thankful to him for the chance I had to hear him talk. Lorne is unique and I really feel he would please any audience. His was and still is one of the most talked about presentations we’ve seen.”

I enjoyed Lorne’s talk immensely. I am here in South Africa for the first time and I don’t have time to go on a safari, but I felt as though I actually did go on one with Lorne. When he was describing the cat at the termite hill, I felt like I was actually there, watching that cat waiting for the hunt. Also, his analogy of big cats being parallel to elite athletes was brilliant! I think their power, their teamwork, and most importantly their focus is absolutely right on cue! And I would encourage anybody to hire Lorne for a talk into any organisation. I enjoyed it immensely!

I just heard Lauren speak on his big cat parallels to performance optimization. Fantastic in every way. Not only entertaining, but it was insightful and motivating. I highly recommend you bring Lorne to your activity, your event and learn from the Big Cat Guy.

Capt. Tom Chaby

Executive Officer, US Navy SEALs

I’ve just listened to Lorne speak about business and animals. It was just absolutely amazing because I had no idea that you could so easily connect the natural world and how leopards actually work and how that has anything to do with the agile way of working. The way he connected it all was just absolutely amazing. It was fascinating! He was very inspirational, and I loved it!

Julie Choo

Founder & CEO, Stratability

Atlanta Convention Centre

Atlanta, Capital of Georgia

Atlanta is the largest city and capital of Georgia and situated in the northwest part of the state at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains near the Chattahoochee River. The first European settler was Hardy Ivy, who built a cabin there in 1833.

Atlanta is a unique destination in the heart of the South. It is the capital of the U.S. state of Georgia and apart from its fine dining, shopping, and rich history, it is also host to one of the most connected convention spaces.
One of these convention centers, the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart, has a team of experts with more than 50 years of experience in operating, managing, and providing solutions for events of any size. It has 500,000 square feet of space, 100,000 square feet of contiguous space and over 45 breakout rooms.

Atlanta History

Did you know that there are over 55 streets with the name "Peachtree" in Atlanta? Apparently, they're named after the Native American village of “Standing Pitch Tree.”

Atlanta's symbol is a phoenix because. Atlanta was the only city in North American destroyed as an act of war. Only 400 buildings survived after General Sherman burnt it to the ground. So the city is almost completely rebuilt after the fact.

A highlight of visiting The King Center in Atlanta

Martin Luther King, Jr. was born in a two-story frame Queen Anne style house that was built in 1895 and bought by his grandfather in 1909. After Dr. King's assassination on April 4, 1968 plans were begun to restore the house as a historic museum.
Dr. King was born and lived in this house for the first twelve years of his life.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is considered the busiest airport in the world because it’s just a three-hour flight from many major American cities.
