Speakers and Topics

Charlotte Kemp

Charlotte is a speaker, futurist and author and has been a member of PSASA for over 8 years. She has served as Chapter President for the Cape Chapter, been convention convenor in 2015 and served as Secretary to the Global Speakers Federation.

Charlotte loves the speaking industry and wants to uncover the nuances that make professional speaking such a powerful tool for change and influence. She pokes around the various elements of speaking and conferences until she finds patterns and clarity and what she has learned is what she wants to share in this presentation.

Speaking categories you need to know for clarity, positioning and success 

Learn the difference between categories of speakers and trainers, clients and audiences, global vs international, workshops vs keynotes and more, that will help you to define your niche, help clients choose you and be more successful in your speaking business.

Lorraine Jenks

Sustainability facilitator, greening specialist, climate change leader, and ethical food activist as a professional speaker, Lorraine advocates responsible practices for public and private sectors.

A teacher by profession, her sustainability journey began in California in the 1970s, working with the infant EPA.  She then spent 15 years as Group Procurement Manager for Africa’s largest hotel chain. She is an accredited Climate Reality Leader, trained by ex US Sen. Al Gore with her most recent research on the impact of climate change in Africa; how to prepare and adapt.

Future proof your family first. Future proof your business fast.

Cape Town’s water crisis is our clarion call to wake up to the reality of climate change – the potentially disastrous threat to our very survival.  Virtuous verbiages like “carbon footprint, sustainability, and going green” have become tired, hackneyed clichés. Short showers, LEDs and paper straws are short term solutions.  We need a catastrophic, global Pearl Harbour; a WWII- type mobilisation; a Marshall Plan.  The planet is fine – we’re not.  So, what about our kids?  Twenty years from now, they will say “Hey, Mom, Dad!  You knew.  What did you do?”  So, what did you do?  What can you do?  Once we understand the “why” – we instinctively seek the “what” – then discover the surprisingly simple “how”.  No doom and gloom. Let Lorraine entertain you, share solutions, inspire and give you hope.

Kindly RSVP by Monday, 16 July 2018 for venue setup and catering preparation.
