What Others Are Saying:

- “It is speakers like you who make the day the most special for our community.”
- “This was such an amazing event! I feel very lucky to learn from these accomplished speakers.”
- “I had a choice to release my fear and reach for trust. And I did—I choose to believe that people are good. These choices, instead of fear, allowed for much needed hope and significantly changed the decisions I made along this journey. Thanks, Ken.”

As an international rafting outfitter, social entrepreneur, successful businessperson, and caring father, Ken Streater has studied cultures amid the deltas of Botswana, in small villages of Siberia, on the streets of China, and through deep conversations with luminaries and everyday heroes. In writing The Gift of Courage, Ken came to know purposeful people dedicated to community. Their gift is to empower others by using their unique personal strengths. Through these experiences and more, Ken creates heart-driven cultures, teaches classes on social responsibility, and delivers thought-provoking and inspiring live presentations for towns, businesses, or other organizations seeking insights to make their community better.

Upcoming Events

Ken is scheduled to speak at a couple of industry-specific retreats this spring and summer. His next public speaking engagement will be announced soon. Thanks for staying tuned!
