"From the bushveld of South Africa, safari guide, Alex van den Heever brings his generous spirit of Authentic Earth to the corporate environment. He shares the powerful relationship he forged with his tracker, Renias Mhlongo and how they broke down cultural barriers to forge a deep friendship by establishing trust, creating community and balance. From tracking leopards at Londolozi to bears in California, the knowledge of the African bush infiltrates Alex's passion for developing new bonds. With Alex as a new generation of presenters, Africa will be called The Enlightened Continent. Fascinating interview."

Relationships & team work in the workplace

Audio visual presentation

Duration: 50 minutes

With humour, sensitivity and humility, Alex and Renias demolish the walls that isolate each one of us. They tell their story of a path to profound mutual understanding. Their story is a tale of contrasts: white and black; man and boy; apartheid and unity; third world and first world. Alex uses the real life story of his life as a game ranger at Londolozi Private Game Reserve and his relationship with tracker Renias Mhlongo to convey transformational wisdom and insights.

Alex and Renias demonstrate how to break down cultural barriers utterly in the work place and foster generosity of spirit among people. It is not a methodology they offer but rather an ability to inspire the audience and open their minds to their potential as individuals and as a team.

The motivational presentation culminates with a few insightful and extremely entertaining stories told by Renias in his mother tongue, Xitsonga, which Alex translates for the audience.

This inspirational presentation has direct relevance for both South African as wel as international audiences.
