It is possible to turn a satisfactory event into an unforgettable experience: a thrilling travelogue of an exceptional journey. This is where I come in. I present a show of photographs and tell about my exciting experiences, about places I visited, about cultures and the people I met on the way, some of them near the edge of the world.
To order presentations please email me.
PhotoTravel is a series of fascinating presentations. The stories are accompanied by spectacular photographs and describe unconventional sights. Here is what some of the critics thought: "Nakash is taking you to splendid armchair travels in various graceful corners of the world" wrote Isaac Levy in Ma'Ariv, the leading evening paper. "A World-embracing art of wildlife and colorful characters from exotic destinations" wrote Ilan Ytshhaik in Yediot Aharonot evening paper. "Efrat Nakash is traveling in the world with her camera and with the talent to focus on the most exciting things", described Asi Friedman in La'Isha magazine. Erez Erlichman described how "Efrat's photography stimulates all senses, and she uses it to convey both story and emotion", in Ynet "Click to the Nature" section. Danny Gaspar, a tour guide, calls me "The guru of Armchair Travel".
I tell my stories and show the sights both in English and in Hebrew. I adjust the length of the lecture and its content to your requirements. It is possible to put an emphasize in the lecture on different aspects such as analogy between travelogues and facing challenges, intensification and personal confrontation, defining targets, sharing resources, working in pressure and uncertainty conditions, mutual responsibility and leadership. In this way the presentations can integrate in the contexts of different aspects of leadership and management, teamwork, quality in the organization, and organizational culture. The travelogues are suitable for corporate events, human resource events, conferences, schools, theme clubs, community centers, youth centers etc. In order to fit a travelogue to your specific event and audience, please email me.
