Ian Schubach uses his passion for all things outdoors and experience as a Safari Guide in Southern Africa to build high performance teams and leaders. Using dramatic wildlife imagery and gripping storytelling ability, Ian engages and thrills his audiences. His presentations are full of sound business sense interlaced with humour.
Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Ian now calls Sydney, Australia home. His transition from Safari Guide to keynote speaker and facilitator has played out over the last 20 years and in all corners of the globe. He has worked with senior teams in industry leading companies such as Westpac Banking Corporation, Grant Thornton, Cisco, UOB and Singapore Airlines. When not presenting, Ian enjoys adventures in Africa on Safari, mountaineering in New Zealand and the Andes, and cave diving in South Australia.
The Power of the Pride presentation is a unique and entertaining presentation and one to remember.
Ian uses his safari experiences as a tool to enthral audiences with his riveting and informative account of how lions, the only cats to hunt in teams, can be compared with businesses operating as teams. Ian's presentation is based on the point - the success of the team is because of the individual and the success of the individual is because of the team. This 'win-win situation' is the basis for successful lion prides and business teams.
