Read what others are saying about Ken Hartley

“Ken Hartley is one of the most gifted and versatile people I’ve worked with.  I’ve heard him sing and he moved people to tears.  I’ve watched him dazzle crowds with his professional magic skills that I’m still trying to figure out.  I’ve seen him lead praise and worship services in front of dozens and in front of thousands.  I’ve marveled at his ability to have a crowd laughing out loud and then have them quiet as a wake as he taught leadership principles at conferences.

Churches, corporate gatherings, and special occasions are just a few of the venues where he excels.  Above all, he is a humble servant and there isn’t a diva bone in his body.  He is a delight to be with and I love what he does, but I even more than that… I love who he IS.”

Mike Huckabee
Former Governor of Arkansas

In the last several decades I have shared the stage with Presidents, actors, actresses, billionaires, and countless other famous people. I have spoken to millions of people in hundreds of conferences. I know speaking ability when I see it. Ken is not only a master illusionist, he is also a master speaker and can customize any topic or theme to any specification.

He has done numerous shows for our corporate retreats where people pay thousands to attend and he consistently is ranked at the top of our speakers. He mesmerizes, astonishes, exceeds expectations, and blows the audience away! He is a must have talent when excellence is a requirement. He is a guaranteed standing ovation. I highly recommend Ken Hartley to any organization. We will continue to use his many abilities every chance we get.

It is rare that we have the privilege of experiencing a leader who is both talented and knowledgeable, yet also possesses a contagious passion for his calling… Ken Hartley is such a man. He is an incredible teacher, singer, and illusionist. I will bring him back every chance I get!”

Ken’s commitment to excellence has been an inspiration to me and to thousands of people who have seen his performances. After consulting with him on several effects I was proud to see the professionalism and respect he would bring to anything he decided to master. It’ll be exciting to see what astonishing things will happen next!
