Quinton Coetzee was born in the Namib Desert, Quinton spent most of his childhood in the African bush.

He began his working career as a hunter and then later attained a degree in the natural sciences. Today, he is considered one of Southern Africa’s leading bushcraft specialists.

His passion for adventure has taken him from bitter sub-Antarctic regions to the scorching deserts of the Middle-East.

He has summitted the highest ice-peak in Russia and has lived with ‘vanishing’ tribes in Africa, the frozen wastelands of Outer Mongolia and the sweltering jungles of the Amazon basin.

Quinton Coetzee – Business Strategy

As a conservationist, he has managed the animal collection for one of the largest Zoological Gardens in Africa where he was committed to the breeding of endangered species around the world.

He is a frequent resource in print and on radio programs, speaking on a variety of nature topics. Quinton Coetzee – Business Strategy is well known as a television presenter of popular wildlife programs such as “Aardwolf” and 50/50 “Veldfocus”.

He has also trained as a classical pianist.

Quinton’s business message has universal appeal – he has addressed audiences in more than 30 countries worldwide.  His talks assist people to tap into their natural potential… to improve their business skills and performance… and to gain a better understanding of themselves and others.


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 Strategy focuses 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.

Using unforgettable analogies, Quinton vividly drives home the necessity to get “Back To Basics”, both in business and also within our complex personal lives.
