If you need a professional, engaging, and motivational speaker, then you need to call Ken Hartley. I’ve hosted many events, and Ken has by far been one the best I've worked with!

The last two events I hosted were for two large groups—one at an arena and the other for 13,000 high school students that was live-streamed to over 450 schools across the USA. Having a speaker that can engage, entertain, and captivate large crowds is essential. He had the audience on the edge of their seats—from professionals at the arena to high school students— he was engaging until the end.

Ken Hartley is a true professional who was easy to work with and produced great results for my events. I will definitely book him again and you should too!
