Reinvention and Change Management – Business Breakfast

A willingness to embrace change is necessary for the future success of your business.

Change management is a necessary business survival skill.

Reinvention is an essential business skill to propagate in our organisations if we want to keep the doors open. And along with reinvention comes change management.

As leaders and influencers in your organisation, it is imperative that you help the organisation to remain flexible and agile so that you can respond to new opportunities in the market and pivot away from threats and dead ends.

While reinvention is a long, hard road, it is immensely rewarding - and you get to stay in business! Some companies don’t have the stomach for it. They are too timid to make the moves necessary, and want to return to an illusion of an ideal past, and they will find themselves ill suited for future generations of clients who have adapted and evolved.

  You need to reinvent ahead of your clients and your competitors. And you need to manage how you communicate that change within your organisation and to your stakeholders.

During this session you will:

- Identify potential sources and patterns of disruption

- Develop a list of disruption responses

- Reinvent your organisation while remaining in business

- Difference between incremental and radical changes

- Communicate your changes and value to your clients, staff and stakeholders

- Profit from an innovation initiative

    It is such a pleasure when a speaker adds significant value to a conference programme, and Charlotte certainly did that! Charlotte was a guest speaker and workshop facilitator at our annual conference, and delegates thoroughly enjoyed both her talk and the workshop. Her delivery was engaging, and the content stimulated delegate interest, made them think and challenged their current way of thinking. Charlotte's talk was most relevant to the conference theme, and it was clear that she invested a lot of time and energy to come well-prepared. Thank you, Charlotte!

    Charlotte Kemp presented a keynote address at the 17th annual seminar of the SA Association of the Flavour & Fragrance industry on 14th March 2019. The feed back has been phenomenally good! Her presentation was incisive, entertaining and contained important content for our industry. Her delivery was professional and engaging and the audience was kept enthralled for over an hour! For anyone seeking an outstanding speaker at an event - for motivational and industry-specific content - Charlotte is a great choice. Thank you Charlotte for getting our industry thinking and moving enthusiastically into a "future-mindset"!

    Malaysian Association of Professional Speakers was thrilled to have Charlotte speak in our monthly event on future of the speaking industry. I really admire Charlotte for making the content relevant to the audience and using the context of Asia and Malaysia in specific when giving examples. She did research to ensure that the audience will be connected to her message. A good session for us speakers to be mindful of what we need to do and not to overlook diversity and inclusion in our preparation.

    "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.

    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.

Her ideas and techniques will help navigate your company from here today into the future without having to leave your boardroom. We have worked with Charlotte on a number of occasions and will again: her open, caring, humble approach to facilitation gives one a sense of control over the process, yet guided with care and precision through the content. Brilliant.
