Life on the Run

Roger’s first filming assignment after leaving the corporate world was on the sardine run off the east coast of South Africa. In this talk he shares first hand experience of this incredible natural phenomenon, involving perhaps the greatest concentration of predators in the world, and gives an account of what it took to get the footage required to produce the the one hour TV episode “The Great Tide”, narrated by David Attenborough. Drawing in his ten years of management experience prior to becoming a wildlife cameraman, he teases out the key lessons learnt from this experience on how to best manage high performance teams, and concludes with some insights into how best to apply these ideas into bigger teams and organisations.
