International Speaker...

Ken is in regular demand as a keynote speaker for both corporate and academic conferences.

His lively, interactive talks demonstrate the behavioural aspects of presentations and public speaking. They are particularly inspiring because they bring a fresh approach to the subject, based on some of the techniques that actors use to engage an audience.
