Deadly Innovation

Unlocking innovation for a sustainable future


For those unique individuals who engage the world in a radically different way, innovation comes from within. However, for the rest of us mere mortals, we have to look for a source of inspiration to create the new or to solve the impossible. The focus on understanding the natural world as a source of innovation has been formalised through the practice of biomimicry and the science of biotechnology. There is no doubt that we have much to learn from this 4.85 billion year jigsaw puzzle that is the world we live in today.

Deadly Innovation explores how innovation often comes from the most unlikely of sources. Why clutching to outdated values and beliefs is holding us back, and how being open to solutions from nature are going to help us create the world we so desperately desire.

  1. I first met Jonathan, many years ago, when he was an enthusiastic teenage member of The Spider Club of Southern Africa. It’s extremely rewarding to see how his passion for his beloved scorpions and the natural world has blossomed and grown, and to witness him now communicating and sharing his depth of knowledge with humour and professionalism.

  2. Recently, SA Association of Retired Persons were fortunate to have Jonathan come and speak for a second time. Jonathan has a passion, vision and inspiration. Whatever our age we all have a responsibility to bring about change.

  3. You have a super human ability to connect to the audience in a very personal and profound way, then you unleash your message! I’ve been using blood pressure medication for a number of years and had no idea they were based upon snake venom. You have converted me, as I left your presentation questioning everything I know about venomous animals and the environment. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Eric. Solving the challenges of our time starts with understanding that our values and beliefs are everything! If we can see the world differently, then we can overcome all of the challenges that modern life presents.
