Odyssey Invictus is founded in the experiences of Kevin Lawrence, Founder and Managing Director of The Odyssey Group and the work they have undertaken developing thousands of people around the world since 2002.  It is also from his work since 2014, providing people with fully immersive and defining development experiences in the South African bushveld and experiencing first-hand the incredible benefits a ‘wild way of learning’ can have on thinking, attitudes, behaviour, ways of working and peoples sense of well-being.

  • Development for the heart, and mind
