Sheldon Recruitment is proud to have Kim van Kets as part of our team.


Kim is self-employed as a legal consultant / corporate trainer, freelance writer, published author and inspirational business speaker.

Her one hour inspirational talk encourages delegates to rediscover the passion that enables them to recharge their batteries and prevent burn out and loss of creativity. It draws comparisons between the challenges she faced on her self-powered 6 772km journey around the border of South Africa and those encountered in the business world as well as in one’s personal life.

ADAPT & THRIVE presentation includes:

  • Up with Mzantsi! Inspired by the Beloved Country.
  • A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline!
  • Achieving a balance
  • What your business needs more than anything are employees who have truly come ALIVE!
  • Adapt and thrive in a changing environment


This is what Dawn Barkhuizen (Daily Dispatch opinion and analysis editor) had to say about Kim…… 

“Kim van Kets is one of SA’s most compelling and inspiring public speakers. She delivers substance with grace, humour, Intelligence and most importantly, the power of personal lived experience. As convener of the Daily Dispatch and University of Fort Hare’s series of public dialogues I staged 120 speaking events over 10 years featuring top SA and international thought leaders, including former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, analyst Moeletsi Mbeki, Deputy Judge President Dikgang Moseneke, ConCourt Judge Albie Sacks and global arms trade expert and former politician Andrew Feinstein. As a public speaker Kim van Kets easily holds her own among the best of the best. As a motivational speaker she leaves you with take-away. Hers is a voice that deserves to be made much, much louder.”
