Quinton uses spectacular visuals (rather than a single written word) to take his audience on a fascinating journey into the African bush.

He demonstrates how a San Bushman Tribe (the Company/Group) is able to thrive in a harsh, ever-changing environment (the Marketplace/Workplace) due to a thorough understanding of the wildlife on which they depend (the Income Source/Clients) and the predators with which they compete (the Competition).

The message is powerful and riveting and draws parallels between survival in the bush and success in the business world. Quinton Coetzee – Business Basicsfocuses on the timeless ‘Universal Laws of Survival’ – the “must do’s”, “essentials”, “non-negotiables”…the “nuts and bolts”. These are the “basics” that underpin success in any endeavour.

These are the undisputed “Laws of Successful Business’.

In a compelling manner, Quinton takes the audience back to the origins of these basics, defines what the basics actually are and proves that enhanced performance and greater success can only be achieved once these basics are firmly in place.
