    Yossi Ghinsberg Speaker Biography

    After losing his three companions in the midst of the uncharted Amazon, Yossi Ghinsberg, an Israeli adventurer, accomplished the impossible by surviving 28 days in the jungle. He recounts his story in the best-selling books Lost in the JungleJungle: A Harrowing True Story of Survival and Laws of the Jungle: Jaguars Don’t Need Self-Help Books.

    Yossi Ghinsberg’s business adventures include: a tech entrepreneur in the heart of Silicon Valley, VP of a groundbreaking medical corporation and the visionary behind Chalalan the most celebrated eco-resort in the Bolivian Amazon. A world explorer and epic storyteller, he is a graduate of philosophy and business administration from Tel Aviv University.

    His book Jungle has sold millions of copies globally, aired as a docudrama on Discovery Channel and has been produced as a major motion picture starring Daniel Radcliffe, entitled Jungle.

    Yossi has met with world leaders, bringing his Amazon survival skills to institutes and organizations worldwide. He knows survival like no one else, and he knows why it is important for businesses to learn and embed these survival principles. Yossi advises leaders and teams worldwide on how to awaken their ‘Day to Day Hero,’ following a set of natural survival skills we have all forgotten that we possess. His unique insights are counter-intuitive, mind-bending and nothing short of transformational for individuals and organizations today.

    Yossi knows that the old Darwinian approach is wrong, limiting and dated, and yet so prevalent. There is a new way of thinking about leadership and business with new science behind it. Fascinating and enlightening, Yossi is an epic storyteller who has shared the stage with luminaries such as Bill Clinton, Richard Branson and Wayne Dyer.

    Yossi Ghinsberg Keynote Topics

    A key insight from Yossi’s harrowing story is that the survival of the Jungle relies on collaboration. Working intelligently with his changing conditions, Yossi was able to perceive innovative ideas vital to his survival. Yossi challenges organizations to think about how they can apply collaborative thinking; expanding out from the limiting mindset of pure competition, designing environments where teamwork can thrive, skills are utilized and ideas are shared. His survival skills for business are designed to shift attendees’ perspective on what survival actually means, inspire them to always assume responsibility.

    In many industries, the rapid rate of change teams are facing can leave people feeling as though they are lost in the wilderness. Something Yossi Ghinsberg has experienced first hand. After a tragic separation from his friends, Yossi was lost alone for weeks in the heart of the Amazon with no food or defenses, in the midst of one of the worst rainy season for decades.
    Yossi translates his own lessons of survival – where every single moment left him at the mercy of the jungle, and his ability to adapt fast to the changing circumstances literally meant the difference between life and death – into effective strategies for those experiencing change in the work environment.
    You can hear a pin drop in the room when Yossi takes the stage. But there is much more than sheer entrancement in his storytelling. Yossi translates his own lessons of survival into principal and effective strategies for business excellence.
