Profile:
Alex is a down-to-earth and passionate man, who through his love of the bush and the deep bond that formed between him and his tracker Renias, has learnt the true meaning of the power of relationships.

Relationships
Audio visual presentation Duration: 50 minutes

In the corporate environment, a veritable melting pot of different cultures, individuals are required to not just work together but to achieve a harmony that ensures the client experience and ultimately the success of the company. With humour, sensitivity and surprising humility Alex demolishes the walls that isolate each one of us. He tells the story of his own path to abundance; it's a tale of extremes, white and black, man and boy, apartheid and unity, emerging world and developed world. Alex uses the real life story of his life as a game ranger at Londolozi Private Game Reserve and his relationship with tracker Renias Mhlongo to convey transformational wisdom and insights. Alex is a new generation of South African speaker, ultimately personable but capable of utterly breaking down cultural barriers in the work place and fostering a generosity of spirit amongst team players. It's not a methodology he offers but rather an ability to inspire the audience and open their minds to their potential as individuals and as a team.
