Awaken the Wild Within for Re-Firement

Updated: 13 hours ago



I am glad you are intrigued to join us around the campfire to co-create how to Awaken the Wild Within for Re-firement and Meet the Masai. The Masai of the Inkankare village and the wildlife of Amboseli National Park will be our inspirational role models from whom we will gain much wisdom for transformation.


Who is Invited:


Those who have been influential as top sportsmen and women, ambassadors for their countries, inspiring others to have a mindset for success and how to be team players.


Those who have made an impact as a member of a C-suite for a Corporate organization with great values and integrity, and want to continue to have a meaningful contribution to life.


Even though you are facing retirement and asking yourself, "What Now?", because your body is tired and injured, or you are being replaced and given a "golden handshake", this is not a time to quit, you are not built for that, it is a time to start a new life-changing adventure.


Meet your Fireside Hosts who are going to pave the way as we co-create an adventurous path through this Transition Time:



Mandy Young is a Psychologist, Ecopsychologist, and Nature Therapist with over 30 years of experience. She is also a Transition Coach and has journeyed with many children and adults towards good relationships with themselves and others.


She is a professional team player changing the lives of amputees, two of whom became Paralympians. Mandy worked with two medical teams, one dealing with cancer patients and their families, and the other helping Amputees rehabilitate back into life. She was also a team player in the sporting arena ranking 11 in Zimbabwe as a junior tennis player and playing 1st team tennis and basketball for the University of Cape Town.


Her passion is to take people into wilderness places to gain life-changing insights from observing wild animals, walking and talking with the Masai and Bushmen, and swimming with wild, ocean-moving dolphins. Mandy believes good mental health and environmental sustainability go hand in hand, and that as we re-connect with the truest parts of ourselves we will be drawn to re-wild the earth and lock into the interdependence that is necessary between all species.


She is a journalist soon to publish her first non-fictional novel, and is a motivational speaker and member of the Professional Speakers Association of the UK.




Marie Laidig is a Transitional and Corporate Coach who loves working with diversity. She has a demonstrated history of working in the Management Consulting Industry. She is skilled in Executive Development, Transition and Executive Coaching, Team Synergy, and Dialogic Facilitation. Marie has run workshops for many top Corporate Industries like Insight Expedition Ltd., Audi LEAD, Marshall Goldsmith and Columbia 1400.


She has a big heart and is currently the competent Chairlady at Bridging the Gap in Glasgow, and has volunteered at the Poverty Truth Commission to help those financially disadvantaged.


How Will You Benefit?

  • You will be "Awed" and the way you see life will never be the same. Your perceptions about yourself, the world, and what matters will change in a way that inspires your authenticity, and how you can make a unique impact in the areas of life that matter most to you

  • As you reflect on the social behavior of wild animals and listen to the wisdom of the Masai, you will know yourself better.

  • When you know yourself better being a team player will make sense. A team is more than a sum of the individual parts and flows with massive movement when each person knows their strengths and weaknesses, and their unique contribution.

  • You will gain clarity as to what the future can look like and the decisions you would like to take to fulfill the new vision.

  • You will think out-of-the-box and find creative solutions.

  • You will be restored physically, emotionally, and spiritually

  • You will want to give back to the wild animals and tribal people who have made this possible. You will want to Re-Wild the earth.
