Andre J. van RensburgManagement & Team Consultant
Why Book Andre van Rensburg? A dynamic and inspiring presenter, Andre uses his in-depth knowledge of African wildlife behavior as a metaphor to transform teams.
His in depth knowledge of the animals in the African outback has made him recognize the importance of territorial, awareness, maximizing individual personal strengths, creating rituals to strengthen the pack through social interaction, trust, focus and team maintenance.
His approach is unconventional and different simply because he uses analogies with nature and the lessons that teams can learn from African animals that live in packs, herds and prides.

Mr. van Rensburg recognized after running several successful companies and working with very dynamic and successful people that there are certain uniform principals that successful people and companies all consistently apply. He has been sharing these principles to international audiences for many years. His incredible passion for the African bush together with his training, understanding of people and experience in the business world has created a natural platform for him to excel in speaking, teaching and consulting. His approach is unconventional and quite different from traditional keynote sessions simply because his TEAMS – “Together Everyone Achieves More Success” series uses analogies with nature and the lessons that teams can learn from African animals that live in packs, herds and prides. He illustrates why teams have excelled while great individuals have perished in these economic times. He uses video footage and pictures to show how a true understanding of natural behavior within a team and leveraging that knowledge affords the members a greater opportunity to success.
