One of the leading challenges of creating the future is re-aligning our values and beliefs with the current needs of our time. However, if we base our perceptions of the world upon what we do not know, rather than what we know, then it will be impossible to work towards a future that we so desperately need!
Bite Me! asks the question, if we can be so wrong about spiders, then what other areas of our lives can we be equally wrong about?
After the presentation there will be a 30 minute question and answer session.
Presented by best selling author, international professional speaker and award winning conservationist, Jonathan Leeming. All participants are given access to free Bite Me! related resources.
Signed copies of Jonathan's books will be available for purchase on booking and at the venue.
A card machine is available at the event for on the day purchases. If you already have a copy of one of Jonathan's books, please bring it along to be signed.
"Where do I start! Thank you for your presentation entitled Bite Me!, although a few of our members were not keen on the topic, they were all very pleased they attended. Your presentation was simply amazing, particularly the way you interact with the audience with humour. The message of how we need to change our values and beliefs is very important today’s world. We will definitely get you back to share your enthusiasm and knowledge with our members in the future."
"Thank you for your amazing zoom presentation. I loved the way you conveyed your message... so different and yet engaging. It has provided me with a new way to see the world. Thank you once again, I hope to be at one of your other presentations."
"I’ve been to many conferences where one after another, the speakers iterate the same fact based message that it all sounds the same. Yeah, yeah… I’ve heard it all before. But, your message was so unique and fresh, it stood out head and shoulders above other. I have to commend you on the way you worked the audience by dissecting the fear and perceptions of spiders. It was pure genius. Then Boom! You drop your message like a sledgehammer, and everyone just gets it!
When I went home, that I realised your message is so applicable in the current time. Now everytime I see a spider, it reminds me of how I need to change my values and beliefs towards all aspects of the world."
