Natural Leadership - In our stressful and turbulent world, how can nature provide us with stillness?

Content and context:

As an accomplished motivational storyteller and TEDx Amsterdam invitee, Alan’s unique empathy and awareness brings the wilderness alive on your doorstep. In a world of uncertainty and unpredictability, Alan explores this fundamental connection with our natural world, and the humbling, inspiring and restorative values it affords us. This by sharing wilderness stories exploring and understanding the restorative quality in nature; that which has meaningful and lasting effects on our own self-discovery. The human experience cries for harmony with nature. For what the wilderness provides us, we should all be doing what we can to preserve it and nurture it, understand it. Alan shows you how to transfer behaviors from the jungle to business leadership.


Alan McSmith has over 30 years of professional guiding experience in several African countries. Alan is always breaking new ground as a safari & walking guide and tracker. Alan lived as a permanent resident of Botswana's Okavango Delta, co-founded a series of exploratory dugout canoe trips through the delta, and has since traveled over 3000 kilometers by dugout. And on the way to celebrate the wild nature in all of us. Alan lives in Hoedspruit, SA with his wife Sarah and two children, Jake and Meg, Born and raised in South Africa, started in the safari industry three decades ago, at the age of 18.
