The Power of Relationships is a totally unique keynote presentation that follows Alex van den Heever and Renias’s 25-year journey working together in the world’s most hostile environments – tracking lions, leopards, grizzly bears, jaguars and wolves.

BUILDING TRUST – COHESION – PRODUCTIVITY

Audiences learn how to build trust in difficult circumstances, dismantle implicit bias and create a culture of belonging in the workplace.

Following his studies in business management, Alex became the youngest person to ever qualify as a Senior Wildlife Tracker in South Africa.

Renias was raised as a hunter-gatherer in the wild north-eastern part of South Africa. In the 1980s, he was a member of the tracking team which settled the now-famous leopards of Londolozi.

Together these world-renowned trackers forged a relationship that is said to be a ‘model for democratic South Africa’. With humour, sensitivity, and humility, Alex and Renias demolish the walls that isolate each one of us. They provide the keys to unlock the latent potential of diverse working relationships.
