Ian Thomas

Business Strategist and Management Expert

Ian Thomas is a business graduate who's studied lions at close quarters during 20 years as a game ranger in Africa. The study of lions in the wild has involved Ian in far more than the gathering of biological data. He has a unique understanding of how lions raise such potent individuals and then combine them into incredibly powerful teams or prides.

"The strength of the pride is the lion, and the strength of the lion is the pride"
