Dr Cruywagen currently offers the following keynotes to his corporate clients:

Jungle Risk Management – Risk Lessons from the African Bush

Ever think the saying “it’s a jungle out there” related to you and your organization? See if you can spot the similarities during this fascinating – and amusing – presentation. This keynote explains (in an informative and humorous way) how animals in the African bush manage their risks (or not) to avoid becoming prey. It then relates these risk strategies to modern day organizations.

Business and the Beast

It’s a Jungle out there!’ At no time is this saying as true as it is now. With no end in sight to the current economic crisis, world leaders and business gurus are desperately looking for a way out. The regular people are always the ones left asking: ‘How could they not see this coming?’ ‘Did they not have plans to deal with such disasters?’ ‘Was there no risk management in place?’ ‘Could this disaster have been prevented?’ The corporate guys made the decisions, but all of us have paid the price – big time.
