‘CAN’T!’ is not a word in Chaplin’s vocabulary. From humble beginnings he realised that the only way to change his world was to act  ̶  a philosophy that has stood him good stead ever since, first with a 26 year-career in banking from which he took the bold step to establish the South African Ubuntu Foundation, and second to rescue the Amy Biehl Foundation (now Amy Foundation) from the brink of bankruptcy.

A lateral thinker, Chaplin’s success can be ascribed to an ability to see business and personal challenges as a means of motivation to generate creative and innovative ideas and ways of solving problems.
