Ken is one of those super professional speakers who just gets it. He surpassed all our expectations in terms of both content and sheer energy on screen
A heartfelt thank you to the truly inspiring and energising speaker, Ken Hughes. He captivated us with a genuinely delightful speech. There are not enough words to describe the impact this session had on our employees and how personal and engaging it was. Simply magnificent
I’ve produced so many events in my career and Ken is simply the best keynote speaker I’ve ever seen. The audience raved about him for the 2 days, his content is insightful, challenging and super entertaining, his speeches always tailored so well to the event. Absolutely world class
“Ken was one of the most inspiring speakers we have ever booked. His presentation was so engaging, insightful and entertaining. The feedback from our delegates has been outstanding, ‘the best ever’ was what I kept hearing. He is one of the superstars, no doubt, and I can see why he was recommended to us. We were not disappointed.”

“As the opening keynote speaker for our International CX event in Istanbul, Ken was outstanding. Every delegate and other presenter spoke about his speech all day. To call him a CX Guru would still not be enough. Working with him and his professional team was such a pleasure and our event was definitely more successful with his contribution.”

The most disruptive force today are your customers themselves

“We have had Ken speaking at many of our live leadership events over the years and he was the first person we thought of when running one of the big virtual events for the Eurapco Alliance. His energy, inspirational content and on-screen presence was as powerful as it always is live. Our members loved it, a great blend of inspiration, energy and thought provoking insight.”

“As our host, Ken brings such energy and passion to our Google virtual events, blending his own thought provoking content throughout. Engaging, funny, professional – simply outstanding!”

“As the host for the event, Ken took the time to get to know each speaker, their contribution and thus sculpted a great storyboard that kept the virtual conversation flowing effortlessly throughout. An absolute professional”
“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”
“As our event host, Ken was his usual charismatic energetic self throughout, pre-recording some segments and live for others and always there to lean on in terms of support. I couldn’t recommend it highly enough”
“Ken did a stellar job as our emcee, exciting and engaging the VP audience throughout the 2-day event. His ability to humanise and personalise while seamlessly adjusting to all the timing and technical issues that come up with a live show was outstanding. He was a great partner and really helped us make our event an ‘experience’. Highly recommended to bring your event to another level”

“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”

I attended Ken Hughes’ lecture and now I feel like a groupie

This guy is the Irish Seth Godin. Loved the Blue Dot @KenHughesIE

I’ve seen hundreds of keynotes in my career, and this guy was simply awesome. He is truly the King of CX

“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”
“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.

His way of looking at consumers, the future and technology is beautifully simple and accessible for all but still inspires everyone to reach higher!”

“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.”
“We cannot thank Ken enough for the outstanding session he gave on Consumer Centricity. Our audience was totally blown away and loved the humour Ken brings to the stage. He is on another level all together and has a unique ability to drive home those all important messages that our Dentists need to survive in today’s competitive environment. Needless to say we will be seeing a lot more of Ken in the future.”
