Speaking

  • Jacques de Villiers
    At our latest PSASA Convention in April I watched Charlotte present. She's articulate, erudite and a bit eccentric (steam punk). Just the right combination for a speaker. Not only did she put up a great show, but the knowledge transfer was masterful. I enjoyed her presentation and learned a lot. Go to her for your next conference, workshop, bosberaad if you want an insight into what the future holds.

  • Douglas Kruger
    Your presentation with Richard Mulvey, titled 'Smoke 'n Mirrors' blew everyone away at the conference. It's not often that speakers impress other speakers, but you certainly did it! Very creative, very original, very, very enjoyable! Thanks for putting in so much work and customisation. We loved every moment!

  • Paul ter Wal
    Smoke and Mirrors; Charlotte and Richard gave us a two-person humour full presentation at the PSASA International convention, April 2019. Their presentation was full of energy and jokes, custom made for the occasion. They grab the attention of the audience and keep the audience connected the whole time. Much laughter and recognition, as they showed us their version of our reality, in smoke and mirrors. Great preparation, which made it look easy, but hard work to get there. I love their style; will be great to see them again soon.

    I had the pleasure of hearing Charlotte speak with her husband, Richard Mulvey, at the PSA convention in South Africa. Together they were so entertaining! It’s hard enough to speak alone but they were a great double act. Both had amazing stage presence and fantastic comedic timing. I would strongly recommend Charlotte as a speaker.

    "Stand Out" is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Charlotte. I had the pleasure of meeting Charlotte for the first time when she came to present and speak at a client breakfast, during which she captivated and engaged with the audience. Above all, I was impressed with Charlottes’s ability to take a difficult concept and present in such a way that everyone understood and was engaged with the topic. And, of course, her ability to command a room. Charlotte would be a true asset and comes with my heartfelt recommendation.

    Charlotte was extremely pro-active in contacting us about presenting at our Africa Associations Congress. As the conference programme director starting with a blank canvas, it was great to connect with someone who could offer experience and value as a keynote speaker. Charlotte not only gave a great keynote, but also led a fantastic workshop. Charlotte was easy to work with, quick to respond and I would highly recommend her to other event organisers.

    I recently spoke at the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa’s national convention. Charlotte was master of ceremonies on that day. I believe that one of the most important tasks of an emcee is to set the speaker up for success. Charlotte does this so effortlessly. She takes time to personalize these intros and she manages to create a golden thread for the whole conference. Absolutely brilliant at what she does.

  • Hani du Toit
    It was an absolute treat to work alongside Charlotte Kemp in her role as MC of the international annual convention of the Professional Speakers Association Southern Africa.

    Charlotte handled the pre-convention leadership training, as well as the main sessions of the convention, with ease, expertise and utter professionalism.

    She managed the delegate engagement with gifts and awards for participation and punctuality. In addition she handled the tight time-lines expertly, seamlessly moving the large audience through each session.

    Her research and preparation in introducing each of the local and international speakers was evidenced by her familiarity with their topic and their unique journey. Every conference needs the mastery that Charlotte Kemp brings.

  • Jacques de Villiers Recommends Charlotte Kemp
    One of the speakers at the mid-term convention was Charlotte Kemp. I dunno what happened but in the last year she's gone through some amazing changes. First, she's totally changed her brand and her offering and is making a mark in the futurist space. I love her website and I think you will too. Second, she's become a powerhouse speaker. She's clearly been working on her craft. And you know how jaded I am having watched 1,000s of speakers in action. So for me to pick up my head and actually listen, takes some doing. Well done Charlotte.

    I was incredibly fortunate to part of a workshop at which Charlotte Kemp presented and her content, organisation presentation skills and audience engagement was phenomenal. She gave relevant and actionable advice that resonated with the delegates. I'd love to have her back.
  • Charlotte, thank you for the phenomenal talk you delivered at the PSASA Mid -Term convention. Your content absolutely "hit the mark" for every single delegate.

  • Emily Impey Recommends Charlotte Kemp
    Charlotte was chair for day 3 of AfricaCom 20/20, and I couldn't have asked for better. She was excellent at engaging the speakers, involving the audience and had great ability to connect the dots between the varied presentations and topics. Plus she had a great background across the wide range of themes covered related to technology and digital transformation. Even in the face of difficult questions or a sometimes 'quiet' audience, she kept the pace and enthusiasm up. I would highly recommend Charlotte as a moderator/facilitator.

    Your book has been such an inspiration. (I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE 'F' WORD)

    After reading your account, I am so pleased that I asked all the right questions when negotiating with three franchise groups in the last 4 years (quick service restaurants, internet/postage cafe/ coaching business).

    All of them did not leave me with a satisfactory reason to part with money and I always wondered if I was being too diligent and careful with my research. Now I don't need to wonder anymore as the lessons you learnt have been a great encouragement to see that I have chosen the right path! I guess I learnt the lesson when my late husband bought a franchise operation and it failed miserably within 18 months as well.

    Thank you for writing this book so that we can learn, grow and share experiences with others.

Brilliant.

    Since Charlotte invited me to speak in her capacity as then President of the local Chapter of the Professional Speakers Association of Southern Africa, I have had the privilege to work with her on committees, see her present, and even attend an excellent LinkedIn course she ran that had great personal 'take-away' value. As a speaker and trainer, Charlotte is incredibly professional, knowledgeable, thorough, witty and has a wonderful sense of humour, that endears her to her audiences. I am honoured to have come to know Charlotte as a dedicated professional, serving leader, loyal colleague and friend.

    Charlotte is a powerful lady and a very talented, polished and skilled speaker. I attended more than one training session and every time I wished at the end we could start all over again. Her preparation and forethought leadership is loaded with wisdom, care and the insight how to shift her audience to think outside their narrow perspective and to find a new way of looking at the same thing. I love her work. She walks her talk.

    Not only did she hook me, she also was willing to hold my hand in getting the ball rolling with setting the group up. She was extremely helpful and guided us where we needed help. We now have our Master Mind group up and running and I'm sure it will be a success based on the coaching and mentoring that Charlotte has afforded us.

Training - Linkedin

  • Denise Paul Montanari recommends Charlotte Kemp
    The strength of the training by Charlotte is that she combines an in depth knowledge of the market place with high levels of creativity and enthusiasm. The Social Media and Linkedin training I attended was inspiring, but also gave me countless practical suggestions for implementing social media in my particular business environment. As a result of the training by Charlotte, I finally feel that I am able to participate in the social media revolution. Thanks Charlotte!

    Just completed Charlotte's "Leveraging LinkedIn" workshop, and it completely changed my thinking. I was irritated by the recent changes that LinkedIn introduced, but when we finished, I realised how powerful LinkedIn can be. I particularly liked that a small business like mine can use LinkedIn as a CRM tool without the fuss. There were also dozens of useful tips covered to make your LinkedIn pages more effective. Do yourself a favour - spend the money and book yourself on Charlotte's course!

    Citadel hired Charlotte to train its advisory partners on LinkedIn. As the project manager overseeing these workshops, I found Charlotte to have a deep understanding of her subject and her practical sessions covered all levels of experience. I especially appreciated her willingness to be flexible and fit in with our needs and include the company's social media policy as part of the training. Her personable yet professional approach made the sessions fun and a great learning experience, very well received by all attendees. I definitely recommend Charlotte and will be working with her again in future.

  • Andre du Toit Recommends Charlotte Kemp
    As a professional speaker, it is equally important for me to be able to connect with clients as well as being able to advertise my own services. Charlotte came very highly recommended by another speaker and I decided to do the course and see if it could help me. As I have never received even a glimmer of work from LinkedIn, I was slightly sceptical so imagine my surprise when after a number of changes to my profile, I received a message from a client asking me to quote. It may be serendipity, but I think Charlotte has given me another arrow go my marketing bow. Oh and the other stuff...great speaker, teacher, venue etc, all the things I would expect were there and often above my expectation

    Charlotte's course is insightful and absorbing. Charlotte has an unassuming manner which promotes ease of understanding, quick utilisation and exploitation of Linked In as a personal connection and a wider corporate business tool. I highly recommend her to corporate colleagues for small group training in-house, as the intimate nature of Charlotte's coaching style is seriously good value on every level.
