Small Steps - An Effective Way to Make Changes
Life-changing transformations can occur if you take small, steady, regular steps.
But beware; major failures can also occur as the result of small, steady, regular steps … if taken in the wrong direction. In this session you will:
The Value of Failure in Achieving Success
Question: What is one of the major factors that separates highly successful people from less-successful people?
Answer: How they view and deal with setbacks, mistakes and failures.
Successful people don’t have fewer setbacks than others. In fact they probably have more. What differentiates them from less-successful people is their attitude towards those setbacks.
Having researched the topic of setbacks, mistakes and failures, Kim shares some insights into a taboo topic that everyone experiences, yet no-one talks about.
During her research, she has discovered two main issues:
1) Life is not a success-only journey. We will all make mistakes and experience failure at some point. In and of themselves, these are neutral experiences; it’s how we deal with them that determines our ultimate outcome.
2) They are extremely useful experiences if we understand them and if we know how to use them to their best advantage. They are an essential part of being successful. The aim isn't to avoid failure, the aim is to be able to understand it, and learn from the feedback it provides
"Failure is perhaps the greatest key to success. More specifically, your response to failure is the real key." Andrew Harvey, American Author.
Kim’s presentation explains how viewing both success and failure in a positive light will further increase your success rate in work, business and other areas of life.
Taking a Risk
When Kim Chamberlain was 13, at school in Liverpool, England in the 1970’s, a missionary Nun working in East Africa came to give a talk. She was a pleasant, quietly spoken person; her visit was uneventful and most likely quickly forgotten by most of the students. However, that brief visit inspired Kim so much that over three decades later she, her husband and their two children left their comfortable, established life in New Zealand and moved to East Africa.
Despite two years’ research and a fact-finding trip over there, they ended up arriving in Uganda with nowhere to live, no work to go to, no source of income, and no schooling arranged for the children. All they had was a suitcase each, two days’ accommodation in a guesthouse, and a belief that it would all work out.
For two years Kim and her family had many interesting, amazing, frustrating and life-changing experiences. She shares with you the steps she took to be able to do what someone called ‘jumping off a cliff’, how she counteracted that with the phrase ‘well, how difficult can it be?’ and how she inspired others around her take risks they had been wary of taking.
Through sharing her journey, she allows audience members to look at risks they would like to take, have some reflection time, and to come away with an action plan for their next step.
What have Snakes, Icebergs and Pen Tricks got to do with Giving a Presentation?
More and more we are called on to speak in public, and for many people this presents a challenge - the nerves come to the fore and we doubt our ability to do a good job.
However, with a few simple techniques and some practice we can build our confidence and competence and deliver an effective presentation every time.
This will be a lively, fun, interactive session, so bring along a pen, discover a no-fail way to prepare a presentation and learn ways to build your confidence.

As a keynote speaker I like to provide high content, inspirational presentations, and will inject doses of my Liverpudlian sense humour throughout. Laughter opens the gate to memory… the more you laugh the more you remember!
“Kim, I was floored by your speaking ability. All conference participants mentioned you and your speech afterwards. Thank you so much.”
