          We used Lorne for our management & leadership session with HomeChoice. Lorne dropped everything to help us, as a previous speaker cancelled at the last minute. Lorne was excellent with his leadership communication and relating all examples to the Big Cats with his own outstanding photography.

          We would recommend Lorne to any company looking for a different view to Leadership, Change and Motivation!

          Lorne Sulcas shared his ‘Thriving in the Wild’ keynote for our players and staff in our instructional league camp this fall. His passion for the the wild, and deep understanding of teamwork, vision, leadership and getting results hit the mark for us. A performer in his own right, Lorne captivated the audience and shared story after story with some great images to capture the imagination and hit relevant lessons for our players and staff to take away. We’d recommend anyone thinking of having Lorne come and speak to them too.
