At Avatar Adventures we have the great honour of working with some of the best conscious leaders in the fields in the world. One of our principles is to collaborate with like-minded people who are passionate and very dedicated to what they do. Their values are so aligned with our own mission and vision and so we are privileged to be able to co-create great adventures to share with the world.
Here is information on all of the wonderful people we work with on a variety of different adventures or initiatives starting with sharing a little about myself….
I am fortunate enough to be the Founder and CEO of two amazing conscious businesses – Top Speaker Events & My Avatar Adventures. As part of our services we offer the opportunity for businesses and business owners to take the ‘leap’ from the old paradigm of business to the more conscious new paradigm of business and being. I offer this through a variety of ways, mentoring/coaching, consultancy and experiential events to reconnect with nature in support of endangered wildlife species.
I have always wanted to have the opportunity of working one on one with leaders in their industry to help create the Changemakers and Thought Leaders of this world. Over the past 5 years after much research, testing and implementing different conscious business models, I have now created my own powerful version I know will help change the way in which we do business globally.
I have now developed my own version of conscious business and Leadingship which embraces the 6 ‘c’ principles Consciousness, Co-creation, Collaboration, Contribution, Culture and Community. Through these 6 principles you can build your legacy.
I offer 26 years of business experience in a variety of areas including business management, mentoring and coaching, event directorship and creation, managing directorship and entrepreneurship. I am described as one of the most “respected and knowledgeable women in her field” and known for my high standards, caring nature, total commitment, integrity and honesty.
My love for travel, nature, the environment but especially for animals and particularity endangered wildlife species, has encouraged me to create a truly unique service and offering to those Changemakers and Thought Leaders emerging through this paradigm shift in consciousness throughout the world and all industries. I am passionate about people and what their dreams are and the gift they have to offered the world. I teach that we can link passion with profit, sales with service and money with meaning.

After being rescued by a Tsonga medicine woman from a dangerous encounter with a pride of lions in 1991, Linda Tucker gave up a career in international marketing and fashion to become a conservationist. Since this time, she has dedicated her life to the urgent protection of the critically endangered White Lions, regarded as the King of Kings by African elders. Despite their rarity and cultural importance, the White Lions have no protected status and may be trophy hunted in the wild and in captivity. To ensure the survival of this legendary animal, Linda Tucker has raised millions of dollars in a long-term strategy to secure large tracks of protected wilderness territory in the White Lions’ ancestral heritage lands.
Linda is the CEO of the Global White Lion Protection Trust (WLT), a leader in community-based conservation, which she founded after nearly 10 years of intensive research on both the cultural and conservation importance of the White Lions in this region. Over 2 decades, the WLT has established a strong track record of creating mutual benefits for Lions, Land, and People.
In 2000, together with her partner Lion Ecologist, Jason A.Turner, and a team of specialists, Linda Tucker was responsible for returning White Lions back to their natural endemic habitat, after decades of artificial removals from their natural system had rendered them virtually extinct. Since this time, the non-profit organisation has been implementing a multi-level strategy which includes White Lion Protection Plan™, a carefully monitored scientific reintroduction program of White Lions into their ancestral lands and the protection of the cultural heritage of the Sepedi and Tsonga peoples who honour the White Lions as sacred. Educated in Cambridge University (1980s), and trained in indigenous knowledge systems by African shamans (1994-2001), Linda Tucker is regularly invited as special guest speaker at international congresses, public events, and TV interviews.
