Patsy Martin Assistant Vice President of Organizational Effectiveness

"Our organization has had a relationship with Ken for many years. The use of the word relationship is intentional because Ken has not just been a consultant to us, he has established a relationship with us. This allows him to challenge us in areas where others fear to go. In particular at a training session a year ago, he challenged our group, and the result was the catalyst for a year of positive change and growth. The department directors took initiative and completely reconfigured our director’s meeting to be, in Ken’s words, more compelling. Our leadership team developed 6 teams to enable us to create a more healthy work environment for our employees. Ken was very instrumental in calling us to change and encouraging us as we navigated through the change, together."

Pearce Fleming CEO

"It has been a privilege and a pleasure to work with Ken Tucker these last 4 years. His advice and counsel has been invaluable as we have worked to resurrect a culture of entreprenuarlism and community spirit here at Summerville Medical Center. What Ken does so well is become involved with his client organizations, partnering with the organization's leaders on both an individual and team level. Our stellar results over the past two years are directly attributable to his commitment and genuine interest in our leaders, from myself as CEO to other leaders at all levels throughout the organization. His passion and enthusiasm are what differentiates him from others we have tried to partner with in the past. It is this contagious enthusiasm that will push you to greater results as well."

Yahoo, Inc.

"Ken Tucker did a fantastic job at the Yahoo! National Sales Meeting. Most people would tell you he was the star performer of the 3 day event. His message was inspiring, yet practical and his delivery was hugely entertaining. Ken's star performance was the direct result of hard work. We had two prep meetings months in advance of the event and a 2 hour session the night before he went on stage. His hard work enable him to create relevance by connecting to the major conference themes and even calling out names of people in the audience. Ken had captured the audience's emotions within the first 15 minutes, so they were very open to hearing the important intellectual points later on. Anyone who wants to talk directly about our experience with Ken, please put us in touch."
