Jungle Risk Management – Risk Lessons from the African Bush
Ever think the saying “it’s a jungle out there” related to you and your organization? See if you can spot similarities during this fascinating – and amusing presentation. Jungle Risk Management - Risk lessons from the African Bush explains in an informative and humorous way how animals in the African bush manage their risks (or not) to avoid becoming prey. It then relates these risk strategies to modern day organizations.

Packed with fascinating facts about animals of the African bush, the book compares their behavior in the jungle to corporate strategies – both failures and successes. Award-winning risk manager, company director, speaker, author and wild-life enthusiast, Gert Cruywagen, will keep you entertained with facts, stories, case studies and anecdotes that are fascinating, informative and funny - illustrated with unique and colourful photographs. This is a new and different way to look at the management of risk!
