TESTIMONIALS

MARCO MANZANTTI

Once again, Ken managed to inspire both our internal and external audiences equally regarding the customer connection and marketing in this new world. Our customers loved it as did our own staff. I’ve never seen so many people so engaged for so long on a Webinar

As a B2B brand we needed to stay relevant and connected with our customers during this time. Ken was the first person we thought about approaching and the webinar series he delivered has had such strong feedback. Sessions sold out way beyond our expectations and delegates stayed engaged far longer than we had ever hoped. It was entertaining, informative, and had all the usual magic and sparkle that Ken delivers onstage

 
 

FERNANDO ANZURES
EXMA LATAM

There are few speakers who can translate their energy, stage presence and inspiration that they have on live stage into a digital platform. Ken is one of them. His humour, visuals and engagement are as strong on webinar as they are live. There was no question about his invite to keynote the EXMA Be On event broadcast to over 115,000 attendees. He was amazing

FIONA JONES

Ken is an energetic, thought-provoking speaker. I’ve had Ken speak at two Google events now and Ken has scored higher than any other speaker I’ve ever had before, lasting a longtime in the memories of the delegates

Inspirational is a word that is too often overused, none more so than in relation to speakers, many of whom are very good but not truly inspirational i.e. inspire people to think or act in a different way. I had high expectations based on your Ted Talk and feedback I had received from a couple of people who had seen you live previously, and I am delighted to say that you surpassed them all.Thank you for a truly inspirational session!

Ken’s speech at both our US and European CX events really excited delegates for the need to better engage with the new consumer and get personal and experiential. As a speech it was relevant, insightful as well as great fun. An ideal mix

SIMON CUNNINGHAM

Ken speaking at our annual Digital Summit was the highlight of our event; he managed to engage and inspire our organisation around the changes we need to make in order to stay relevant to the worlds of our guests. His ability to understand the dynamic world of retail and digital fused with real world insight helped guide our future digital vision.

 
 

KRISTI KAWANNA

Ken’s presentation made delegates laugh and cry and laugh again. His easy story-telling style meant that delegates were not only engaged throughout but also left with some real thought-provoking content. We are already planning on inviting him back!

 
 

GRAEME COOKSLEY
SYMPHONY EYC

As always, Ken delighted our delegates with his vision of the future. His energy and insight around consumer behaviour, technology trends and how these intersect and will change society, consumer behaviour and our industry were out-standing. This is one speech every business and brand should hear

ALICE ACKERMAN

Trying to find a HR speaker who can energise, inspire and excite as much as they can provoke and challenge can be difficult. We have used Ken several times and he never fails to do all of the above with our global employee teams as well as with our customer base. If you are looking for true employee inspiration and outstanding insight into the HR realities, look no further

KATIA RACHITOFF
SEMINARIUM PERU

Mr Hughes’ speech at our congress was the highlight for most delegates. He made it even more relevant by taking the time to visit some of our key retail centres in Lima before his speech, and challenging the audience even more. They would have listened to him for days

 
 

STEVE FERRIS
FORGE ROCK

We have invited Ken to be part of the Forge Rock Identity Summits all over the world, as we are yet to meet another speaker that has his stage presence, thought provoking content, understanding of our own business and industry, all mixed with that natural story-telling style and wit. He delivers every time

 
 

NINA ASENOVA
KNECT INFORMA 365 MIDDLE EAST

It was fantastic to have such a world class speaker at our event and the attendees really loved his new ways of looking at consumers, research and future opportunities. His adaption of the content to local culture and challenges was also very relevant. We’d keep him here forever if we could!.

MARCUS HALL
WORLDPAY

Ken was perfect for our ‘Power of Positive CX’ congress, really opening the attendee’s minds to the possibilities. His style is so engaging that the audience were left buzzing and it really set up the rest of the day for us. If you are looking for a keynote that delivers on CX, this is it

 
 

STEVE ANDERSON
FOODSTUFFS NEW ZEALAND

We have brought Ken to New Zealand for several events now, as he is guaranteed to inspire and challenge both our own executives and our members and suppliers. His way of looking at consumers, the future and technology is beautifully simple and accessible for all but still inspires everyone to reach higher!

Ken’s true talent is the tailoring of his content to our audiences.  We have invited him to speak at several different Red Bull events in Europe, and he always challenges each of us to think outside of the box. He is an educational and inspirational presenter, as entertaining and engaging as he is challenging. Not to be missed

Ken delivered a thought provoking and entertaining speech on the needs and desires of younger generations. The talk was highly appreciated by all of the coaches and the post-event feedback we received has been outstanding.

 
 

MIKE BUTLER

Every time we book Ken for our events, he delivers beyond our expectation on what the modern consumer expects and how brands and business need to challenge their thinking. His take on consumerism, disruption and CX is both thought-provoking and entertaining.

When I saw Ken perform at the ICSC Europe event I knew we had booked a great speaker for our own event in Durban. His content and delivery is excellent, on topic and delivered in a great energetic and engaging style. Definitely a great addition to any retail and property congress.
