Internationally renowned photographer Lou Coetzer, in conjunction with The Da Vinci Institute, launches his very new publication. ‘Towards Synergy’ showcases images and stories about Leadership Principles reflected in nature. The official date of the launch took place on Wednesday 4 March 2015 at Nikon House, Centurion at 19:00 for 19:30.
Attendees had an opportunity to purchase their very own signed copy of ‘Towards Synergy’ on the evening of the event. Representatives from The Da Vinci Institute and Nikon were present at the launch and addressed those who had attended. The book displays beautiful award winning photographs that depict the act of leadership revealed by animals in nature. Furthermore, each photograph is paired with the telling of the story on how these animals work collectively to survive and persevere. These stories can be related to one’s own world of work where the similarity between man and animal are profound and fascinating.
Professor Bennie Anderson, CEO of The Da Vinci Institute, regarding the book states “In Towards Synergy, Lou Coetzer’s intimate and evocative images provide the perfect backdrop to The Da Vinci Institute’s interpretations of Leadership Lessons from Nature.”
Lou Coetzer, international nature photographer comments about his work and what he has experienced. “While I accept that man and animal share intimate genetic links, I am still constantly surprised by the close parallels found in the behaviouristic instincts of the two. Leadership is an example.”
