Whether you and your team are looking for a powerful kickoff to a leadership retreat, seminar, or any similar event, Nat can help you design and implement an exciting and interactive keynote introduction customized to your needs. Nat has delivered keynotes for groups from 100 to 5000 and can easily adjust to suit your group’s specific size, venue, and focus.

Most of Nat’s keynote addresses are built around his personal experience and learning during a 5-year circumnavigation of the globe aboard his 43’ South African-built cutter, BAHATI.  As owner and captain of this tough offshore sailing vessel, Nat encountered many leadership challenges including how to help manage a small crew during long and sometimes rough-weather passages in unfamiliar territory both far out to sea and close to home.  Cultural differences in countries visited by BAHATI’s crew often presented additional challenges for Nat and his ever-changing team comprised of people from several different countries, backgrounds, and ages.

To quote one client in Australia for whom Nat created and presented a one hour+ keynote address:

“Nat delivered a keynote at the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) in Sydney to an audience of about 70 leaders on the topic of “Leadership Presence”.  He captured the imagination of everyone present through his stories, his energy and his passion for the topic. His theatre background helped bring the added dimension of drama to the room. On this cold Sydney winter morning, Nat singlehandedly warmed his audience to engage with their minds and their hearts. Exceptional person and an exceptional speaker.”
