Niche Training & Development



Charlotte Kemp


Before taking some time to work in the non-profit arena, and time for children, Charlotte worked in and trained for some large companies, predominately in the financial arena.  She trained staff in companies like Old Mutual, Nedbank, Telkom and Fedlife.


In the past, Charlotte has presented material on topics in the financial field, software, human resources, management and motivational skills as well as business writing skills.

In the non-profit arena Charlotte handled training commissions from conception to promotion and delivery and eventual follow up.  She knows what it is like then, to try to keep volunteers volunteering.

As an entrepreneur, Charlotte has lost her innocent naïveté about business and has a new found respect for small business owners in South Africa.   The very real lessons she has learned have been fed into her training and were the inspiration for her book, I’m not afraid of the ‘F’ Word.  50 lessons learned on the way to business failure.”  In spite of the title, the motivational book deals with ways to identify potential pitfalls in business and to avoid or overcome them, so that you can enjoy success.

Charlotte has also written articles for nationally syndicated magazines in South Africa on articles relating to personal financial matters as well as to social media.
