“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.

“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.

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.
