Ken Okel laughed years ago when a potential employer described him as being “too versatile,” to hire. Rather than run from this title, he’s embraced it.
Before audiences enjoyed Ken Okel’s leadership presentations, they watched him on TV news. He spent more than 10 years in front of audiences as a news anchor, reporter, weatherman, and talk show host. During his time on camera, Ken covered natural disasters, talked to politicians and celebrities, and went behind the scenes at successful businesses.
Broadcasting also allowed him to enjoy fun experiences like free falling 70 feet, riding through the streets in a motorized armchair, and being attacked (safely) by a police dog.
Ken Okel then moved into the nonprofit world for several adventures. These saw him do everything from running a professional ballet company to organizing more than 100 hurricane relief volunteers. Ken realized every situation demands a high level of productivity and engagement from your team.
Today people know Ken for his leadership presentations to companies and associations. Audiences are engaged and entertained as they learn from his experiences and gain the tools necessary to transform their professional lives. Some enjoy taking part in Ken’s famous Paper Hat Exercise.
