Partnering For Success

Any event planner knows that providing content is critical to a successful event and is also crucial for receiving a positive audience response. Many organizations rely on external speakers to compliment in-house expertise and add credibility and value to events.

Speakers can provide:

  • Knowledge – a speaker with specific subject matter expertise can provide essential insights on industry trends and best practices to your audience.
  • Inspiration – a speaker can offer a high-energy, thought provoking and motivational speech to encourage your audience to take action, adopt new concepts and conquer new challenges.
  • Visibility – a recognized speaker can be an asset to your agenda, increase event attendance and attract media interest.
  • Results – individual and corporate results can dramatically increase with a powerful speaker. Knowledge is power, however, applied knowledge is the real power for change, tangible results and personal growth.

Ken has spoken at many Medical and Dental conventions over the years. He travelled across Canada on a twelve city tour with Merrill Lynch inspiring Investment Advisors on switching to a fee based practice. He has also been an active speaker at annual conventions and corporate retreats in many different parts of Canada.
