Live Keynote: Rusty Labuschagne

As a successful self made Zimbabwean businessman in 2003, without a body and against police evidence, I was wrongly convicted of drowning a fish poacher and spent 10 harrowing years under horrendous conditions in Zimbabwe’s prisons during Mugabe’s rule.
The conditions were unbearable, having to draw on my inner resources and strengths to endure the unimaginable.
My message to audiences is that everyone is faced with challenges, but it is who you are, and the depth of your determination, that will get you through life’s darkest moments.
I show how one can harness one’s inner strength and let go of what one cannot control.
My faith in God, positive mental attitude, leadership qualities, and lessons in forgiveness, gratitude, and humility bring a personal, transformative and authentic message of hope and freedom to any audience.
The talk is called Beating Chains

    Keynote Speaker | Author

    Rusty Labuschagne is an International Motivational speaker on overcoming extreme adversity, leadership and resilience.

    One is immediately struck by his sincerity and humility as he delivers a dramatic account of his transformational experience.

    Rusty has been through a trauma few have experienced. In 2003, the successful Zimbabwean businessman, who ran a safari outfit, flew his own aircraft, and had a fishing resort on Lake Kariba, was framed by a poacher, the police, and the courts, and wrongfully convicted of drowning a poacher.

    He talks and writes about being subjected to conditions most people would find unbearable, having to draw on his inner resources and strengths to endure the unimaginable.
