Yossi was lost alone for weeks in the heart of the Amazon with no food or defenses, in the midst of one of the worst rainy season for decades.

 

Yossi Ghinsberg translates his own lessons of survival – where every single moment left him at the mercy of the jungle, and his ability to adapt fast to the changing circumstances literally meant the difference between life and death – into effective strategies for those experiencing change in the work environment

 

Collaboration, Innovation, Survival

 

After a tragic separation from his friends, one man is lost alone for weeks in the heart of the Amazon with no food or supplies, in the midst of the worst rainy season in decades.

Yossi was able to perceive innovative ideas vital to his survival.

 

He challenges organisations to think about how they can apply collaborative thinking; expanding out from the limiting mindset of pure competition, designing environments where teamwork can thrive, skills are utilised and ideas are shared. In this unique presentation audiences will;

 

Learn how to move away from competition into a collaborative mindset, one that fosters innovation and ultimately, survival
Feel empowered to adapt to their changing circumstances and roles and forge a united team
