"The challenges of building the future will not be solved by staring at a problem but, instead, by being open to new solutions." - Jonathan Leeming "To be truly innovative in a sustainable world you cannot just be a little bit better - You have reinvent your industry with powerful new solutions." - Jonathan Leeming "There is no way that we can have a deep understanding of everything in the world. In an attempt to be all-knowing and wise, we make sweeping and often flawed assumptions. " - Jonathan Leeming "After 3.8 billion years of natural capital, research and development, nature has come up with some ingenious ways to deal with some of life’s challenges." - Jonathan Leeming "The miracle of nature is that if there is a problem, there is an organism that has found a way to conquer it." - Jonathan Leeming "The focus on Nature as a source of innovation has been formalised through the practice of biomimicry and the science of biotechnology." - Jonathan Leeming "The true value of nature does not lay as individual units, but in it’s connectedness into an infinite number of related systems." - Jonathan Leeming

Deadly Innovation

This 45 minute presentation focuses upon the solutions to the challenges of our time that are right in front of us!



For those unique individuals who engage the world in a radically different way, innovation comes from within. However, for the rest of us mere mortals, we have to look for a source of inspiration to create the new or to solve the impossible. The focus on the natural world as a source of innovation has been formalised through the practice of biomimicry and the science of biotechnology. There is no doubt that we have much to learn from this 4.85 billion year jigsaw puzzle that is the world we live in today.

Deadly Innovation explores how innovation often comes from the most unlikely of sources. Why clutching on to outdated values and beliefs is holding us back, and how being open to new solutions is going to help us create a better world through biotechnology and biomimicry.

Deadly Innovation is part of the One World Ecosystem and is supported by One World Media, One World Book, One World Companion Workbook and One World Connect.

    I first met Jonathan, many years ago, when he was an enthusiastic teenage member of The Spider Club of Southern Africa. It’s extremely rewarding to see how his passion for his beloved scorpions and the natural world has blossomed and grown, and to witness him now communicating and sharing his depth of knowledge with humour and professionalism.

    Recently, SA Association of Retired Persons were fortunate to have Jonathan come and speak for a second time. Jonathan has a passion, vision and inspiration. Whatever our age we all have a responsibility to bring about change.

    You have a super human ability to connect to the audience in a very personal and profound way, then you unleash your message! I’ve been using blood pressure medication for a number of years and had no idea they were based upon snake venom. You have converted me, as I left your presentation questioning everything I know about venomous animals and the environment. Thank you!

  4. Jonathan Leeming says:

    Thank you Eric. Solving the challenges of our time starts with understanding that our values and beliefs are everything! If we can see the world differently, then we can overcome all of the challenges that modern life presents.
