This incredible true story by adventure keynote speaker, Greg du Toit, comes with stunning accompanying visuals and leaves audiences stunned and invigorated. Detailing the exploits of this world-class photographer’s passion to capture endangered free-ranging lion photographs on the floor of Africa’s Great Rift Valley, the story takes place at a waterhole in Kenya’s Maasai-land. It is here that the wildlife photographer spent 16 months and 270 hours sitting in the water, nearly loosing his life to lions and contracting numerous tropical illnesses. Highly translatable, this presentation motivates and inspires on both a corporate and individual level, showing that the impossible can be achieved through resourcefulness, focus, creativity, dogged determination, appreciation and above all else, patience.
Chase Your Dreams is a truly unique presentation as the story is accompanied by spellbindingly beautiful photographs and video clips, all from the heart of Africa. Audiences are offered insight into the patience, passion, commitment and dedication that it takes for a wildlife photographer in the 21st century to capture truly unique imagery. The personable style of the presentation as well as the infectious story itself, motivates audiences and there is also time afterwards for questions and answers. We invite you to partake in another man’s ‘against all odds’ quest to accomplish the impossible and to find out how images that Greg captured in a remote corner of Africa, lead to a sellout solo exhibition with the National Geographic Society in London and to a cover story for the Africa Geographic Magazine.
To make your evening or event extra special, Greg offers an exclusive book signing of his coffee table book titled AWE at each talk. An exhibit or charity auction can also be arranged. Chase Your Dreams has received exposure the world over with Greg having delivered this presentation as far afield as Finland and India.
