Alex van den Heever

The transforming nature of true friendship is beyond dispute, everyone has their own personal experiences and has enjoyed the rewards of committed friendships. But what of the relationships that develop between colleagues? Can these be as powerful as spontaneously formed friendships? Can healthy interpersonal relationships in the corporate environment lead to greater levels of personal and financial fulfilment?

The answer is a resounding, ‘Yes’ says wildlife expert and inspirational speaker, Alex van den Heever. In his presentation The Power of Relationships he provides the keys to unlock this latent potential in working relationships.

He is a down-to-earth and passionate man who, through his love of the bush and the deep bond that formed between him and his tracker Renias Mhlongo, has learnt the true meaning of the power of relationships.

With humour, sensitivity and surprising humility Alex demolishes the walls that isolate each one of us, using the real life story of his life as a game ranger at Londolozi Private Game Reserve and his relationship with Renias, his tracker, to convey transformational wisdom and insights.

Alex is a new generation of South African speaker, ultimately personable but capable of utterly breaking down cultural barriers in the work place and fostering a generosity of spirit amongst team players. It’s not a methodology he offers but rather an ability to inspire the audience and open their minds to their potential as individuals and as a team.

During his 13 years at Londolozi Alex raised money for habitat restoration projects, did marketing presentations and conducted specialised safaris.
He holds the highest qualification for a guide in the country. Alex has just started a trust called ‘People of the Rare Earth Foundation’ which will raise funds for rural communities living adjacent to wildlife areas in Africa.

What our clients say ...

“The art of storytelling has been mastered by Alex, and his profound message about relationships in an African context will stay with me for a long time. Excellent, thank you.”
James Crawford, Regional Manager KZN, Spar Build-It

"... Alex touched his audience with his passion for his subject, and the sensitive way in which he explored the critical issue of "personal relationships" by drawing on his own extensive experience - unlocking valuable lessons for us, in not only our corporate, but also our social lives."
David Lawrence, Deputy Chairman, Investec Bank Limited

“Alex van den Heever’s stage presence can in short be described as motivating and thought provoking. His ability to bring to life the awe inspiring tale of friendship encapsulates the very essence of South African diversity and culture.
He manages to touch people in a very real and relevant way and specifically within the context of our (client) event he was able to take a very personal experience and apply it to the corporate world. The ultimate touch was of course in bringing his friend onto stage in a powerful conclusion which could be felt throughout the audience. We would definitely consider using Alex in future motivational talks for our clients.”
Harshna Kanaye, Consultant: Organisation and Change Management, Deloitte Consulting

"We were thoroughly thrilled with Alex’s presentation. We had top level directors as well as line managers attending and it appealed to all of them. Special thanks to Alex for his energy and enthusiasm... He was great!"
Lisa Steingold, Marketing manager, Medal Paints
