The WEvolution Revolution | Yossi Ghinsberg
A philosopher of life, Yossi Ghinsberg is a man of passion, fixed resolve and a connector of people. He believes that nothing promotes growth more than an unexpected experience and unconventional thinking. In these times of great challenge and change, his “Power to Survive” message is timely.
Yossi Ghinsberg was born and raised in Israel and served three years in the Israeli navy on the Red Sea. During this time, he befriended the Bedouins of the Sinai Desert whose wholesome philosophy and nomadic lifestyle greatly influenced his life’s path.
He studied Jewish Philosophy and Business Administration at Tel Aviv University, followed by a comprehensive study of the 'Kabala' in authentic environments. A truth seeker by an inner calling, Ghinsberg continues to study the religions and philosophies of the past and present - including the Ancients, the Classics, Eastern, Contemporary and the Shamanic path.
Ten years after almost losing his life in the Amazon, Yossi Ghinsberg returned to the river valley that was the site of his remarkable adventure and made it his home. During this period, he was instrumental in the creation and construction of Chalalan, a model eco-tourism village that inspires the Amazon basin and the world to this day. His work with indigenous Amazon tribes contributed to the creation of the Madidi National Park, the largest biosphere conservation belt in the Amazon.
The next phase of his life was dedicated to the treatment, rehabilitation and reintegration of opiate addicts throughout the world as Vice President of The Center for Investigation & Treatment of Addiction (CITA). Ghinsberg promoted a new approach to the treatment of opiate addiction, establishing 12 treatment and research centers around the world from Mexico to China. He also founded 'The Alma Libre Foundation' based in Australia, dedicated to assisting opiate addicts in their re-integration to society.
Since that time he has initiated several different business ventures and published two books and two albums of original music. He has been involved in grassroots efforts for reconciliation and healing in the Middle East.
Today he is the founder of a new interior and landscape design label “collecteco” which represents his never ending roaming of the planet, his commitment to ecology, his connection to nature and his respect for indigenous cultures.
Yossi Ghinsberg is married to Belinda and father to four children: Mia, Cayam, Nissim, and the recently born baby boy Shalem. They live in Israel, Australia and the USA.

The Power to Survive
“Adversity is part of life; being a victim is a matter of choice.” Yossi Ghinsberg’s amazing true story of survival is a timeless metaphor for how to face up to the challenges and uncertainties of every day life. After being separated from his friends, Yossi wandered lost and alone for three weeks in the heart of the Amazon. He managed somehow to survive, even with no food or weapons and during what was the worst rainy season in decades, until he was miraculously saved. Yossi’s message is always timely and always appropriate - for any group, anywhere. He speaks to what it means to be human, and shows us how we all possess the power to survive, even in the most extreme situations. His message is inspiring and hopeful leaving his audiences uplifted and empowered.
The Laws of the Jungle
Jaguars Don’t Need Self-help Books: A master practitioner of corporate spirituality, Yossi Ghinsberg introduces this pioneering work of incorporating principles and guidelines from nature…the natural world…the planet as a whole and the cosmos and draws their relation to the management of our personal and professional lives. Audiences are intrigued by the unique cutting-edge human thinking that provokes and challenges the conventional, suggesting an alternative outlook on life and a new path of action toward wellbeing and success. Empowering and encouraging, Ghinsberg’s ‘Laws of the Jungle’ teaches: we are the co-creators of this life; assuming responsibility yields power; what we resist persists; and casting our vision upon the future forms a new path.
Sailing the Seas of Change
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives or the most intelligent, but the one most adaptable to change.” (Charles Darwin) A master storyteller, Yossi Ghinsberg’s keynote on change is not a lecture but a journey, taking audiences far away from their every day reality and giving them a different perspective on what change really is and how to use it. Accepting change as a natural phenomenon is the basis of sanity; knowing how to flow with the change is the greatest of virtues. This is the most basic and relevant wisdom that can help us better manage our work and our lives. Ghinsberg explains how surrendering to the power of change doesn't mean one is helpless or powerless. Individuals and organizations will always be faced with change. His insights help everyone see change in a positive way - not as an obstacle to be overcome, but an opportunity to be grasped.
The We-volution Revolution
Get ahead of the curve with this keynote abundant with original thinking on the consequences of the GFC and the trends and values of the emerging new world.Passionate and positively charged with contagious optimism Yossi recounts a story about the tremendous power of a timely idea to create new reality and change the world. This is a story of a dying village in the remote Bolivian Amazon bravely attempting to save itself from oblivion. The story reminds audiences that as professionals and grown-ups we tend sometime to limit our vision and doubt our own ability to be a force in the world. it is a strong reminder to organisations that new perspective is needed specially when tectonic plates are moving. The danger of staying bound to old ideas that belong to a disappearing world can be fatal, while keeping the eyes on the ever expending horizons, adapting to timely ideas and new values and daring to render new vision to fuel purpose facing risks and sacrifice.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us and sharing with us of yourself and your experiences. It is indeed your Gift to do so and you do it very well. You are inspiring, and have made a big impression on my family and I thank you for that.
On behalf of Mackenzie Financial and our clients, I would like to thank you for your contribution to the Mackenzie University 2010 conference. Wow!

Deckers Outdoor Corporation
We had the great privilege of engaging Yossi Ginsberg as the keynote speaker for a week-long strategic off-site meeting with the entire leadership team. The meeting represented a critical milestone for the company and we needed to find the right person to inspire our attendees. We probably evaluated about 400 speakers before settling on Yossi. From the moment we made contact, we were impressed by his energy, creativity, and commitment to our objectives. He worked closely with the team developing the content for the meeting and tailored his message to fit perfectly with our corporate objectives. He is a phenomenal storyteller. His experience and his ability to enthrall an audience is unparalleled. During his talk, you could hear a pin drop - the audience was hanging on his every word. He talks from the heart and does not present a pre-packaged or canned message. He told his own story, but included so many life and professional lessons that our team was talking about the speech for days during and after the event. His preparation ensured that the speech not only enraptured the audience but hit many of the major themes of our strategic off-site. If you are looking for someone who can help you move your organization to a new perspective, I could not recommend him more highly.
Aditya Birla Management Corporation Pvt. Ltd.
Yossi Ghinsberg spoke at the Leadership Conference of the Aditya Birla Group on 11th December 2010. Narrating his experiences of fighting nature’s wrath all by himself while lost in the depths of the Amazon left each one of us awestruck. Strength, a positive bent of mind and the hunger to survive is what Yossi exudes, all equally important qualities for survival in the Corporate world. His simplicity in recounting his Amazon tales sans a fraction of fear, speaking straight from his heart left everyone humbled for this great gift bestowed on us called ‘life’. The Aditya Birla Group is grateful to Yossi Ghinsberg for having eloquently shared his survival experiences from the Amazon and thereby making a positive difference to each individual present that day, in encouraging them to treasure their special life. He was truly moving and yet inspirational.
