What he offers
How he presents
Ian Thomas’ speeches are highly inspirational, motivational, educational and entertaining. He uses wildlife analogies extensively and illustrates his fascinating points with slides. Sound business sense is interlaced with humour and an ability to tell stories.
Ian Thomas is a business strategist and motivator. A business graduate with a degree in Economics, Ian has studied lions at close quarters as a Game Ranger in Africa for more than 20 years. He adapts his experiences in the African bush to illustrate and draw parallels between the jungle of nature and the jungle of business. Ian has written numerous articles for prestigious magazines such as National Geographic, French and German Geo and many others.
Ian’s background has given him a rare insight into business and nature and how the two can complement and benefit from each other. He believes that there are many lessons that people, and in particular business people, can learn from nature. In his book ‘The Power of the Pride’ Ian uses his intimate knowledge of the King of Beasts to demonstrate the superbly effective structure of a lion pride and how this can be applied to modern business to obtain “the winning team”.
