Feedback
Yossi, I can't think of enough superlatives to describe your presentation and the effect it had on our conference delegates. Spectacular, inspiring, emotional, motivational, breathtaking… all of these and more have been used by delegates who were privileged to hear you at the Cairns Convention Centre. You have touched many hearts with your wonderful story and people who have now read your book following the conference have kept talking about "this inspiring man called Yossi Ghinsberg". Travelscene Ltd

Your address was perfectly suited to our overall event theme of 'continuous learning'. Feedback received from the group was outstanding which can only be attributed to your ability to communicate the events you experienced whilst in the Amazon. The storytelling of 'The Holy Grail' at the theme dinner was superb with all staff mesmerised by your presentation.

I would like to thank you for your contribution in making the AACB Gold Coast Conference such a success - you are in a class of your own. As your story is about courage, loss and challenges, it transported the listeners into your experiences, into your awakening. Your delivery was powerful and effective and you certainly had the audience with you all the way, conquered, inspired and enriched.

Gold Coast Tourism Bureau

A fascinating story of one man's experiences told by a wonderful story-teller. Held the audience in his hand from start to finish. Apart from being an incredible and riviting story, the messages within his story show how we, in every-day life have the strength deep within ourselves to take charge and choose our own destiny, instead of accepting fate.

Touching, challenging and at all times entertaining, Yossi seemingly invites the listener around his campfire as he recounts his near death tale. I have never seen a packed room of around 700 people to be totally absorbed at a convention session in my career.

Yossi was an incredible speaker. Extremely professional, easy to deal with, flexible and accommodating. His presentation was inspiring and captivating for everyone.
