Keynote Topics

Quinton believes that every person is endowed with a deep-seated instinct to survive … to survive at all costs and against all odds!

His powerful and riveting introduction leads an audience into the fascinating world of a San Bushman Tribe (the Company), their bush environment (the marketplace), the wildlife on which they thrive (the Clients) and the predators with which they compete (the Competitors).

Using spectacular slides, he illustrates that everyone has dormant or underutilized business skills.

These skills need only to be set free or ‘unlocked’ in order to realize maximum gain, both personally and for the company. In this regard, no one beats the San.

This is how successful business has always been done, is currently being done and will continue to be done.

Everyone has the natural ability to do the same. This is the Back to Basics approach!

  • Do you have the head to know exactly what you need to do in order to achieve your goals and to live a fulfilled life?
  • Do you have the heart to develop and maintain the relationships and the inter-relationships necessary to achieve your goals?
  • Do you have the guts to overcome any obstacles that may stand in the way of your goals?

Quinton Coetzee cuts to the chase as he takes his audience on a journey into the raw realities of nature.

He unpacks the head, the heart and the guts of all living things in their endeavor throughout time, towards a successful prosperous and fruitful existence.

As with his renowned presentation, ‘Back to Basics – San Solutions’, Quinton uses spectacular visuals as he explores timeless lessons for personal achievement and business success.

The message is powerful and riveting, drawing perfect parallels between the challenges of survival in the bush and success in the business world.

Quinton Coetzee focuses on the enduring ‘Universal Laws of Success’ – the imperative actions, deeds and behavior that underpin success and achievement in any endeavor, by any person or team.

These laws are not complex; indeed they are simple and efficient … and they have been practiced by successful teams and individuals for thousands of years.

“Embracing our natural instincts, leads to supreme success. Deviation therefrom, encourages the extinction process …”

This highly energetic, professional presentation not only inspires and motivates, it enthralls, moves and punches home the reality of personal commitment and survival in the corporate world.
