Anyone who attends one of Vernon’s powerful talks will leave the session feeling truly inspired into actually doing something about the way they interact with others around them. His presentation “Natural Teamwork” uses some incredibly powerful lessons from nature to show us how easy it really is to perform at the highest level – whether in business or in our personal space. His message is simple and hard hitting – all business leaders and managers owe it to themselves to see how nature can teach us how better to operate as a team. In fact, any person interested in seeing how nature can play a role in us “lifting our game” will find his presentation hugely beneficial. The analogies he uses are both fascinating and relevant - from learning how frogs can teach us to communicate better between each other, to seeing how leopards bring out the specialist skills set in ourselves – Vernon is able to captivate his audiences with some incredibly amazing wildlife footage. Vernon’s powerful “lessons from nature” are universally relevant in our everyday interactions with others around us and can be immediately applied at work or at home – you will immediately benefit from his talk. His strong business background coupled with his passion for nature make a talk by him unique. For those who make use of his facilitated workshop after his exhilarating talk, the take away message is huge. He has a unique “take away” that guarantees immediate results….
TopicsThe Team Beyond A visually powerful and interactive presentation, Vernon is able to clearly demonstrate that we need to adapt the way we operate as a team today in order to survive tomorrow. More importantly - using wonderful visuals and great humour - he is able to bring together some of the harsh and powerful lessons we learn from nature and explain how these learning’s can be applied in business. Aspects covered in this vibrant presentation include: You can’t do it alone – Communication – Relationships - Warning signs – Strategy – Leadership - Generalists and Specialists – Succession – Training – Trust – and more… Vernon’s presentation is ideally suited for employees from all levels within small entrepreneurial organisations all the way up to large corporates. You would have leant that things don’t get more real than they do in nature. Both the corporate world and the bush each have to face the dawn of a new day with the same challenges – competition, politics, ego’s etc. No business will ever succeed over a sustained period of time unless it is able of operating effectively as a team. You will leave this session more informed and more motivated to put into motion some of the learning’s from Vernon’s talk. Sound simple? It is, but it is very seldom practiced….

Well done Vernon – I think there are some great lessons we can all take away with us and put to work ….” Paul Harris FirstRand Limited “It is not often that one is privileged enough to be presented with something that is as unique as it is inspiring.

It is one that I will take with me and remember for many years to come”.
