Leading survival instructor, experienced agent of organisational change

Mike House is one of Australia’s leading survival instructors, an entertaining, informative and entertaining keynote speaker and a highly experienced facilitator.

Fundamental survival instincts, hard wired into us as human beings, have a profound impact on our success in business, relationships, and change environments. Using insights from the natural environment, survival experience and psychology (both ancient and modern) and current leadership models and theories, Mike will introduce you to readily applicable knowledge and tools to transform your results, decrease your stress and bring a greater sense of wonder and joy into your business or personal life.

He has spent 20 years working with groups as diverse as youth at risk, multinational corporations and television documentary crews on what has been described as the “world’s most arduous survival exercise outside the military” (National Geographic America 1999).

Mike has survived several life-threatening survival situations on the ocean, in tropical jungles, in raging white-water and extended sea kayak journeys.

As a birthday present to himself, Mike undertook a 12-day solo survival walk in one of Australia’s most hostile environments, taking 2 litres of water, a pocket-sized survival kit and the clothes on his back. Mike put his survival skills to the test sourcing all his food and water off the land – and loved the experience!

By observing and leading people in complex situations of extreme deprivation and duress, Mike has developed keen insight for how humans either panic and suffer or adapt and thrive.

Mike House sees the same behaviours in ordinary workplaces and shows people how to view their work, daily tasks, relationships and opportunities through new eyes. Mike shares insights from extreme survival situations, linking them to common issues for leaders.

Mike House talks about:

  • Dealing with Stress
  • Personal and Team Resilience
  • Performing Under Pressure
