Quinton Coetzee

South Africa's leading bush survival expert and highly knowledgeable on tribal existence, Quinton transfers his knowledge of surviving in the wild to surviving in the boardroom. An explorer and a conservationist, Quinton has dedicated his life to the great outdoors, using the lessons he has learnt here to help people unlock their business potential, and be the best versions of themselves.

Quinton Coetzee was born in the Namib Desert and having spent most of his young life in the bush, began his working career near there as a hunter.  He later attained a university degree in the natural sciences after which he specialised in bush survival.  Today, he is considered one of the leading bushcraft specialists in Southern Africa and is a highly regarded motivational speaker.

Quinton has always had a passion for expeditions.  He has explored remote areas from the icy sub-Antartic to the sweltering deserts of the Middle East and has spent time with ‘vanishing’ tribes in Africa and the Amazon jungles.

Fantastic! An amazing concept. The delegates were enthralled.

As a conservationist, he has managed the animal collection for one of the largest Zoological Gardens in Africa, where he was committed to the breeding of many endangered species worldwide.  In this regard, he is well known for his commentary in print, on air and television as a presenter of the popular wildlife programme “Veldfocus” on 50/50.  He has also trained as a classical pianist.

Quinton’s message has universal appeal and worldwide, his talks assist people to tap into their natural potential to improve their business skills and performance and to gain a better understanding of themselves and others.

Quinton believes that every person is endowed with a deep-seated instinct to survive. In his powerful speech, he takes audiences through the bush environment, comparing wildlife and predators to the demands of the boardroom and business world. Using footage and photos from his time in the wild, he illustrates the need in all of us to unlock our maximum potential.

Unique and exciting, Quinton’s incredible background and experience makes him a fascinating speaker.
