Yossi Ghinsberg Speaker Biography


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.

Bringing Amazon Survival Skills to Business

Yossi’s ‘Amazon Survival Skills for Business’ is a mesmerizing storytelling session that will keep audiences riveted to the edge of their seats. However, this total absorption facilitates also a deep learning experience. Yossi’s counter-intuitive insights will expand horizons, open new dimensions and facilitates new possibilities.

What can be learned from a man who survived against all the odds in the Amazon Jungle?


Yossi Ghinsberg is a master storyteller with an epic story to share. Lost alone in the midst of the Amazon rainforest for three weeks, he not only survived, he found new meaning for his life and work. The author of the international bestseller ‘Jungle’ , now a major motion picture starring Daniel Radcliffe, Yossi was recently rated as one of the top ten speakers in the business.


His survival skills for business are designed to shift your attendees’ perspective and inspire them to always assume responsibility, taking their game to the next level. His energy is contagious – his insights mind-bending and counter-intuitive.

Key Takeaways:

  • Survival is not a negative. Survival is a desired state for the workplace, driving everyone to their peak performance.

  • Survival should be part of the work culture since survival is an intense competition where everybody wins, and no one loses.

  • Survival equals peak performance – peak performance of all faculties – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – all are at the top of their game and consolidated on one single purpose.

  • Survival is extremely efficient.  The ‘secret sauce’ of survival is the realization that competition is a waste of energy and inefficient, hence a poor survival strategy. A better, more efficient strategy is investing the energy in innovation, creating a Niche Monopoly™.

  • Niche Monopoly™ is nature’s secret weapon in generating greater yields with less effort. In niche monopolies you have no competition; no energy is wasted. The free energy can be invested in rewarding the team, giving back to society and investing in further innovation to maintain the edge of the Niche Monopoly™.
