Empowering Workshops

Retire Successfully

Your journey to living a meaningful and balanced life in retirement

This six-hour workshop is aimed at people nearing retirement, typically age 50 and above, and is designed around a new definition of Retiremeant™ – having the freedom to achieve your yet unfulfilled dreams and goals, on your terms and in your own time.

Kim challenges you to visualise what your retirement would look like if it turned out well and asks “What will you be retiring TO?” She guides you through a process to understand your relationship with money and encourages you to incorporate all the elements that make up a balanced and fulfilling life: work, play, purpose, health, learn, relationships, give-back and money.

Kim shows that a holistic Retiremeant™ Plan is made up of Life Planning, Financial Planning and Estate Planning and firmly believes that your money and your life cannot be separated.

The workshop includes a personal workbook, interactive exercises and a support pack take-away.

Intentional Investing

Your journey to merging your money with meaning in your life

This six-hour workshop is for people who are still earning and creating their wealth legacy, typically between the ages of 35 and 50. It’s based on the philosophy that a holistic plan includes a Life Plan, Financial Plan (which includes Scenario Planning and an Investment Strategy,) and an Estate Plan.

Kim explains that Life Planning is the first essential step to Financial Planning. It’s about visualising, planning and then putting into action the plans, goals and dreams that you have for your life. Your Life Plan is enabled by your Financial Plan – this means that the way you structure your investments depend on what you want to do with your money.

Kim guides you to align your money with meaning and to consciously create the life you want.

  • Paula Quinsee

    The Dare to Lead course provided a lot of insight into my own personal growth journey and is very relevant to the work and industry I am in. I found Kim to be a wonderful facilitator who allowed participants to discover, explore and share their stories whilst at the same time stepping into their own vulnerability and courage. Thanks for wonderful and insightful experience!

  • Tracy-Lee Benkwitz

    I thoroughly enjoyed the course, interacting, sharing and learning from you and your team. I took away that showing up ‘vulnerable’ is aa practical and important step I need to take every day to grow as person and help others do the same. The course materials, interactive practicals as well as the take home info , have helped cement lessons learned. The next journey is one of bravery to step out in confidence and share! It was in a nutshell , inspiring and invigorating!

  • Hayley Giuricich

    The Dare to Lead Program is all about self-development and being or becoming your best self. Kim is an excellent facilitator, she has a grounded confidence and her passion for the Dare To Lead content shines through in her interactions. This course is personal and Kim was able to support and inspire me on a truly self-reflective journey. Thank you.

    I have just completed a 3 day DTL workshop facilitated by Kim and Julia. It was superbly facilitated and did absolute justice to Brené Brown’s inspiring work. I think this work is relevant to all aspects of our lives. Whoever you are, or whatever your role, I have no doubt you will get great value from the workshop. I think we put armour on daily, be it parent, partner, teacher, leader, business person or professional. The workshop process helps you engage with the idea that becoming more vulnerable is at the core of being able to connect more effectively with others.

Empowering client conversations to enhance your value-add in Financial Planning

The call for brave conversations with Clients

Kim believes that Financial Planning done properly is to guide and mentor clients to formulate a Life Plan, supported by the Financial Plan; and for Life Planning to be truly effective, Planners need to be self-aware and equipped with coaching skills so that they feel comfortable having these brave conversations.

Planners are now required to take on the role of coach and mentor – and this role involves authenticity, vulnerability, empathy, non-judgemental listening skills and the ability to inspire.

Kim will guide you to change your value proposition by teaching the skills and practices needed to connect with clients in a meaningful way.

    I have just completed co-facilitating a series of Behavioural Coaching workshops for financial planners with Kim. Kim was inspirational in telling her personal story, and how she has enacted her passion of helping people have courageous conversations about money; and help them become the masters of their money, rather than be money’s servant.

She facilitated Financial Life Planning workshops throughout South Africa as part of the Allan Gray Behavioural Coaching Programme for Independent Financial Advisers.

Your Money Journey

Understanding your relationship with money

This four-hour workshop is aimed at helping you understand, edit and change the relationship you have with money. How you think and feel about money determines to a large extent how your money story will play out in your life.

Kim guides you to put money in its rightful place – as an enabler of your life goals and dreams. The workshop will take you through a five-step process that will help you make significant positive changes to the role of money in your life. A clear understanding of your relationship with money can start a whole new chapter where you are able to change the story, rewrite the chapter and start making money serve you – instead of the other way around.
