"From the little spark may burst a mighty flame" (Dante) Ignite your Red Power
Courage to make choices.
Courage to do what you desire and be who you are,
despite other people's opinion.
Courage to risk everything and follow your dream.
Guts to look into the mirror and 'to cut the crap',
so your fire can be ignited again.
The obstacles and how you deal with these.
The highlights and lows.
The successes and failures.
It is not just about what you do and what you have achieved.
It is about who you are and your willingness to learn,
so you can move into the right direction in your life.
Drawing inspiration from obstacles and failures
As a storyteller, I take you on my life journey. I needed guts to follow my childhood dream, to face my fears and insecurities and to step out of my golden cage. I took a leap to establish a company in Kenya. That was a huge challenge, with successes and failures, but I did it!
As a speaker, I do not come with theories, but with lived-in and out-of-the-ordinary stories that most people will identify with.
Do you keep dreaming or do you have guts, and get into action and just do it? Everything is a choice.
Every dream you pursue, whether you succeeded in achieving or not, is a step towards your next destination. My dream is to connect women with their inner strength, to awaken people, to inspire them and to ignite the existing potential - the Red Power.
And, to be the voice of the voiceless.

Chantal is in the top 1% of all speakers
"Chantal is in the top 1% of all speakers I've ever seen! I was fortunate enough to watch Chantal give a presentation in Uganda that lit up the entire room and inspired myself and all the investors and business leaders in the room to re-think our conceptions of what is possible. She speaks in a way that immediately resonates and that commands the attention of the entire room. She speaks with her heart in an incredible vulnerable and strong way. Any organization who is fortunate enough to get Chantal to speak at their gatherings will quickly come to learn that she is the highlight of the show!"

Gundalyn Hemmink (The Power of Following Your Dream)
A boost of energy, inspiration and strength
"Chantal reminded me of the power that is released when you dare to speak out what you want. That was the last push I needed. Thinking became really doing it and I started as entrepreneur. I’m convinced; if you do what suits you, it will flow. And that’s what happened. Since I took action, I have experienced an incredible amount of energy, inspiration, strength and desire on daily basis. In return, I shine my light on people around me, with my enthusiasm. Thanks Chantal for your message at the right time and the right place!"
