Summary Profile

If you are looking for a speaker for your next event or conference – LOOK NO FURTHER - use Kevin Chaplin. He is an accomplished, inspiring business and motivational speaker for Corporates, Businesses, Conferences, Universities, Schools, and brings some interesting experiences with his work in South Africa, Europe, UK, Northern Ireland and USA.

His topics are varied and adapted for any audience. He has lots of interesting experiences to share and more importantly examples to help others think differently. He will motivate the audience to achieve whatever they put their mind to, strive for excellence and not be scared to be entrepreneurial or implement change in their lives.

He turned FNB Cape Town around in 3 years and enjoys sharing the “how” with audiences and also his many stories that others can learn from to ensure they believe in themselves and can achieve anything they want in life. Despite everyone saying it was impossible, he built a new centre for youth in Cape Town in the past year with 7 classrooms, offices and student accommodation costing R 8 million and paid it off in 15 months. It is a
real testimony to what is possible!

Rave Reviews

“... The exceptional experience alluded to by Mr Barron is certainly not an isolated event as I have personally seen and heard of numerous instances wherein you continue to make a concerted effort to ensure that both our customers and potential customers experience exemplary service. Your passion and commitment as well as the natural pride you display when communicating with our customers epitomises the FNB philosophy and is an example to all in our team.” - Zweli Manyathi, CEO FNB

“... Kevin looked and sounded like James Bond 007!” – Sindi Shayi, Chief Director Western Cape Education Department

“... Congrats on such a wonderful function the other day. It was warm, emotional and a truly meaningful event. Thank you for everything you do for the communities out there, it is a really pleasure and honour knowing that there are such caring people like you out there!” - Suzanne Ackerman, Pick ‘n Pay

“... Kevin, I hope I am not talking out of turn here but I need to say that you were simply the best Director ever. You took your staff to their limits. You explained every month the scorecard, where the business was heading, where our down falls were, where we were down on certain products the different action plans put in place so that we could achieve what needed to be achieved. I think you need to write a manual on how to be a top catchment. How to get there, please no disrespect to anyone, but I just miss your management style, your passion and your sincerity.” – Jenny Lawrence, Relationship Manager, FNB

“...I would like to express my thanks for such a professional and capable individual as Kevin Chaplin. He is an absolute gem. I have always received exceptional service from him on every occasion. As you are aware a good Executive is worth their weight in gold. In the business world we are exposed to banking good and bad
and one therefore appreciates excellent service. Efficiency is his middle name. He knows exactly what to do in any given situation. No task is too big or small and he handles them all with confidence and vigor and always has the time of day to chat and make a person feel special. It is a pleasure to do business with him. Recently a
good friend of mine was at her wits end with the service she was receiving from FNB Sea Point and was going to move her account away. She had in excess of R1 million in her bank account. I spoke to Kevin who immediately contacted her and retained the account. FNB are ahead of the pack with professional people like Kevin who are always willing to go the extra mile. He is a wonderful asset to FNB and a lovely person and I shall certainly be passing on Kevin’s name and the good name of FNB to business associates and friends who could benefit from his exceptional service.” – Ethlyn Sussman, CEO MBS Creations (Pty) Ltd

... What a wonderful testimony you gave recently. Well done! I reckon many “professionals” in the audience would really have identified with your scenario, and thus benefited a great deal from hearing what you had to say. You were most sincere, and the folk were certainly listening with very attentive ears. I certainly was!” - Adrian Baillie-Stewart
