International speaker, tracker and author.
Ian Thomas is a rare person. He’s a business graduate who’s studied lions at close quarters during 20 years as a game ranger in Africa. As one of the world’s top motivational speakers, he uses that deep knowledge to transform teams. A dynamic and inspiring presenter, Ian believes people, and especially business people, can absorb and learn from the animal kingdom. Sound business sense is interlaced with humour and an ability to tell stories. The audience leave enthralled and repeat the stories to friends and colleagues resulting in immense “take home business value”
“The study of lions in the wild has involved Ian in far more than the gathering of biological data. Discussions with business men and women while viewing lions has made him aware of the social interaction, hunting techniques and defence strategies among individual lions with vastly different personalities, strengths and weaknesses.” His two keynote addresses, The Power of the Pride and The Spoor of Success have been heard by delegates in thousands of companies in more than 30 countries.
He’s written a book, The Power of the Pride. More than 90 000 copies have already been sold. Ian’s a frequent guest on radio and television talk shows. He’s featured in many local and international management magazines. He’s also one of South Africa’s foremost wildlife photographers.
If you want to motivate and transform your team, you should seriously consider Ian Thomas as the motivational speaker for your conference, workshop or training session.
