Ian Thomas spent many years as a Game Ranger in Southern Africa and is recognised as one of South Africa's foremost wildlife photographers.

For the past 8 years he has been appointed as a consultant to companies such as IBM, Hewlett Packard, and Sigma.

Ian Thomas presents a riveting and informative account of how lions, the only cats that hunt in teams, can be compared with how businesses operate as teams.

Lions formed teams in order to hunt the vast herds of antelope that evolved on Africa's savannahs. The strategy of using teams to ambush these herds was extremely successful. Individual lions and lionesses benefited from this association and the prides became extremely powerful.

Ian's presentation is based around this point.
That the success of the team is because of the individual and the success of the individual is because of the team. The "win-win" situation is the basis for successful lion prides and business teams.
