Company Profile

Mission Statement

We consult, design and deliver “turning point” events, teambuilding interventions, programmes and courses to enhance the performance and productivity of the individual, the team, the group and the organisation. This is our mission.

We are committed to the principle of equal opportunity for all. We strive for service excellence and are therefore
committed to servicing the needs of our customers. We look forward to being of service to you and to working with your most important asset – your people.


ELEPHANTS IN MAIN STREET has been in existence since 1995. It operates from its Head Office in Johannesburg. Elephants services clients globally. ELEPHANTS IN MAIN STREET has been used by scores of organisations all over the globe. It is highly experienced in, and has a deep understanding of international conditions.


Our focus is on improving the productivity, sales performance, viability and corporate culture of an organisation by enhancing individual, team and leadership ability. Any organisation is only as good as its people. Our focus is on building skills, relationships and systems that increase people’s ability to produce. Give them a common goal, a structure and strategy to achieve it.

Turning Points

Any successful intervention, be it an annual conference, a teambuilding exercise, a training program, or the launch of a new product, must act as a turning point in the life of the organisation, even if this is only to accelerate an already successful strategy or process. ELEPHANTS IN MAIN STREET helps you turn your conferences and other events into turning points for your organisation.

Our Approach

Our approach is experiential. What does experiential mean? Winston Churchill put it like this: “To look is one thing, to see what you look at is another; to understand what you see is yet another; to learn from what you understand is something else; but to act on what you learn is what really matters.”

Client List

These are some of the companies that we have worked with recently;
ABSA, Adcock Ingram, Alexander Forbes, Algoa FM, Anglogold Ashanti, Barclays, Barloworld, Cadbury’s, De Beers,
Deloitte, Department of Trade and Industry, Dimension Data, Distell, Edgars, Edward Snell, FNB, Good Hope FM, Hatch,

Our consulting process can take an organisation through the key steps of analysing and recommending changes to its structure and culture, to become aligned with its strategic intent and actual performance. We help to provide skills and forge a process to achieve productivity, growth and continued success.


The focus of our experiential courses is to create the opportunity to apply knowledge, to practise and… yes, often to learn from our mistakes. Realise our present shortcomings and then learn a relevant skill. Now we are talking meaningful training, refreshingly different from having a body of knowledge thrown at you – relevant or not.

We are able to provide practical skills training based on proven principles and concepts.

Corporate Culture

Culture refers to values shared by the people in the organisation. These shared values lead to specific behaviours by individuals and teams within the organisation. These behaviours in turn forward the Vision, Mission, and Strategic Plan of the organisation.

ELEPHANTS IN MAIN STREET assists organisations to adopt or enhance a culture, which enables them to achieve positive, consistent results and sustainable growth.

First we analyse the current culture to determine whether it is aligned with the organisation’s strategic direction. This analysis provides recommendations for management interventions to create or re-align the culture to be consistent with their strategic intent.

We then provide the necessary interventions to effect the desired changes. We may be able to effect these ourselves, alternatively we will source reliable and effective consultants to do this for you.

Our training and facilitation is mainly in the following fields:

  • Communication and interpersonal skills
  • Management and supervisory skills
  • Team leadership
  • Mentorship and coaching
  • Culture change
  • Change management
  • Strategic planning
  • Sales Training
  • Teambuilding
  • Enhancing team performance
  • Customer relationship and service skills

Our Facilitators

Our facilitators are carefully hand picked. Their primary quality is ability, plus a great willingness to work with teams to effect better production and sales performance. They have to be leaders. They have to be able to face up to and coach the delegates through the various projects at precisely the right gradient to effect positive change.

Our facilitators have a deep and practical understanding, born of experience and training, and of what makes people tick. Better understanding, better co-operation, better communication and better conflict handling are part and parcel of our courses and our facilitators have to be better at these than anyone else. ELEPHANTS IN MAIN STREET is very proud of their facilitators and equally proud of the processes that we have developed. These processes and facilitators have produced our long line of satisfied clients.


Every organisation is different. Our interventions are flexible and our consultants and facilitators skilled in fitting the process to the need. Our pre–course questionnaire, conducted before every course or intervention, ensures you get exactly the training that you want and need.
