A truly motivating and inspirational talk by Kim of a journey which proves mind over matter is possible when passion plays a big role! Ryan Nell – IMESA 2016 treasurer
The talk Kim van Kets presented on her Tri the Beloved country expedition at our annual DTS Prestige Convention was outstanding. Kim is exceptionally entertaining, informative and inspirational. She captured the attention of our guests as she kept them motivated to strive to achieve the next level in both their personal lives and careers. Kim is able to encourage her audience on a practical level to persevere through any challenge and never lose focus of their goals, whether it be in achieving their business objectives or personal aspirations. I would highly recommend Kim as a motivational speaker to other business people.
A huge thank you for delivering a truly captivating presentation at our Women’s Day function. We have received rave reviews from our clients and are so grateful for the time and energy that you put into delivering such a memorable presentation. Thank you again and please keep adventuring – we’d love to hear more of your stories.
Kim is a captivating and engaging speaker. It was inspiring to listen to her adventures but where Kim excels as a motivational speaker is in her ability to impart authentic, tangible learnings from her adventures for the audience to take home and apply to every day personal and business challenges.

Kim’s entertaining and inspirational account of her incredible 148 day odyssey around the perimeter of South Africa was the highlight of the 2012 South African Girls’ Schools’ Association Conference hosted by the Clarendon Schools for Girls in East London in May. She shared the life lessons learnt during this epic feat with the 90 delegates who were spellbound, amazed and challenged by her accomplishment!

Kim is an inspirational motivational speaker. She’s truly one of the best I have ever heard.The big difference is Kim has gone out and done it and she can relate it back to practical business due to her vast business consulting experience.

Kim is such an inspiration. During her presentation, what truly struck a chord, is that even good change is difficult and should be carefully planned. As a manager and leader it is often assumed that knowing the end goal is good, the transition and impact on people are often understated. Kims’ talk raised a new level of awareness with me that can be applied in both my personal- and business life alike. Her courage, endurance and zest for life is contagious!
