Kivi Bernhard moved to the U.S with his wife and family in 1997. With only $860.22 on his name he went on to build Kivi International, a multi-million dollar international wholesale diamond business.
Kivi's business network reads like a current edition of "Who's Who?" in business. Tapping into this asset has allowed him access to the minds of some of the most accomplished names in the global business arena.
Kivi has an amazing ability to synthesize his lifelong passion and study of Africa's predators with timeless life lessons across the spectrum of human experience. He is the author of internationally acclaimed business book "Leopardology: The Hunt for Profit in a Tough Global Economy", receiving numerous accolades from top CEO's and best-selling authors all around the world.
Taking the professional speakers circuit by storm, Kivi has been requested to keynote audiences from the Bahamas to Bangkok. Recognized my many experts in the industry as "one of the most promising and talented speakers in the world today" and often described as an amalgamation of Crocodile Dundee and Jerry McGuire, he is a riveting and captivating speaker renowned for his platform excellence.
With the aid of award winning footage Kivi uses the hunting habits and techniques of the African leopard -perhaps the most successful feline predator on earth- to draw metaphors of personal and corporate leadership, trust and success that leaves audiences spellbound.
