REPRESENTED IN ASIA PACIFIC

In the midst of the uncharted Amazon, after losing his three companions, one man was tested to the extreme. Alone and bare to the bone, for three harrowing weeks he battled to survive against all odds.

However, Yossi Ghinsberg lived to tell the amazing story. As well as how the ordeal profoundly affected his understanding of himself and his life purpose.

Ten years later Yossi returned to the Amazon and made it his home. Working with indigenous forest dwellers for three years they built Cha-la-lan, a model eco-tourism village that inspired the entire world. The following decade of his life he dedicated to the treatment and rehabilitation of opiate addicts across the globe.

Author of the international best-seller 'Jungle', Yossi’s amazing journey has been made into a full-length feature film starring Daniel Radcliffe.

Yossi now travels the planet sharing his messages on vision, hope, survival and the inevitability of change.

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

This keynote presentation is based on the international bestseller 'Jungle', now also a documentary produced by the Discovery Channel and soon to be feature film directed by Greg McLean and starring Daniel Radcliffe — 'Harry Potter!'

They are an odd mix to be sure: Marcus, the Swiss mystic; Karl, the shady Austrian geologist; Kevin, the well-intentioned American photographer; and Yossi, the Israeli adventurer.
