Lessons from the wild.


African game ranger and lion expert Ian Schubach speaks around the world with lessons from the wild.

Current work
As a co-founder of Peak Teams, Ian uses his experience as an African Safari Guide, professional keynote speaker and conference facilitator to build more effective leaders and teams. He has built leadership capacity in organisations since 1996.

Previous experience
Ian has delivered over 500 keynote presentations and designed and facilitated leadership events in Australia, Asia, Europe, South Africa and the United States. He has been a contributor to numerous Peak Teams programs, including: Reach for the Summit, Sea of Change, The Nature of Success, In Search of the Big Five and Exploring the Okavango.

A dynamic and inspiring speaker, Ian believes that teams, and especially business teams, can absorb and learn from the animal kingdom. He uses the analogy of a pride of lions as a metaphor for business team success. He partners with organisations around four specific areas: leadership development, team alignment, strategic planning and inspiration.

Talking Points

The Nature of Success

Africa contains some of the most complex and competitive ecosystems on the planet. The animals that live within this environment are subject to rapid change and intense competition.

In The Nature of Success, Ian Schubach explores how business teams can learn from the behaviours and characteristics of four iconic African animals to create sustained success in difficult environments.

Ian has spent many years as a game ranger in Southern Africa, studying the animals and their behaviours. He identified that each species has developed a competitive advantage that allows them to thrive in even the most hostile conditions. Linking this to the business world, Ian combines personal stories with spectacular images to introduce each of the animals and their competitive advantage.
