“Adversity is part of life; being a victim is a matter of choice,” speaker Yossi Ghinsberg says. His amazing true story of survival is a timeless metaphor for how to face up to the challenges and uncertainties of everyday life. After being separated from his friends, Ghinsberg wandered lost and alone for three weeks in the heart of the Amazon. He somehow managed to survive without food or weapons and during what was the worst rainy season in decades, until he was miraculously saved. His message of fortitude and survival is always timely and always appropriate for any group, anywhere. He speaks to what it means to be human and shows us how we all possess the power to survive, even in the most extreme situations. His message is inspiring and hopeful, leaving his audiences uplifted and empowered.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives or the most intelligent, but the one most adaptable to change,” Charles Darwin once wrote. A real-life example of this tenet, speaker Yossi Ghinsberg offers a keynote that delivers a journey, not just a lecture. He takes his audiences away from their everyday realities, offering them a different perspective on what change really is—and how to use it. Accepting change as a natural phenomenon is the basis of sanity; knowing how to flow with the change is the greatest of virtues. This is the most basic and relevant wisdom that can help us better manage our work and our lives. Ghinsberg explains how surrendering to the power of change doesn't mean one is helpless or powerless. Individuals and organizations will always be faced with change. His insights help everyone see change in a positive way—not as an obstacle to be overcome, but an opportunity to be grasped.

Audiences are intrigued by this unique cutting-edge thinking that provokes and challenges the conventional, suggesting an alternative outlook on life and a new path of action toward wellness and success. Empowering and encouraging, Ghinsberg’s “Laws of the Jungle” teaches us that we are the co-creators of this life; that assuming responsibility yields power; that what we resist persists; and that casting our vision upon the future forms a new path.
"Your address was perfectly suited to our overall event theme of ‘continuous learning’. Feedback received from the group was outstanding which can only be attributed to your ability to communicate the events you experienced whilst in the Amazon."
"His experience and his ability to enthrall an audience is unparalleled. During his talk, you could hear a pin drop – the audience was hanging on his every word. He talks from the heart and does not present a pre-packaged or canned message. He told his own story, but included so many life and professional lessons that our team was talking about the speech for days during and after the event. His preparation ensured that the speech not only enraptured the audience but hit many of the major themes of our strategic off-site. If you are looking for someone who can help you move your organization to a new perspective, I could not recommend him more highly."
"Your story of survival against all odds was both fascinating and challenging. You possess the extremely rare gift of a great storyteller with the ability to create word pictures which capture the imagination of an audience and take them on a journey with you."
"Yossi’s sharing of his life story was a subtle way of looking ourselves at a mirror, introspecting right down to the very fabric of our personality that’s often clouded by volumes, numbers and profits, and rediscover those champion genes flowing in our blood. Really going back to the basics and what is essential."
"Yossi is an amazing story teller. The way he tells his story of survival and describes the details of his and his companion’s plight makes you feel that you are right in the midst of it."
"Yossi’s presentation skill is supreme; he was dynamic and highly entertaining. He is a gifted teacher with a unique ability to present complex ideas in conceivable words."
