Text Reviews
  • Keni was absolutely fantastic and engaging! Through his story he was able to connect with every person in the room on both a personal and professional level. Keni generated the emotion and the image we were looking for to motivate and align with our supply base and brought it home with a song. We thank Keni for supporting our event and intend to "Get it On!"
  • John - VP Mission Assurance, Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems
  • He is the best speaker we've ever had at our conferences and we've been doing this for 25 years. Not only was his message heartfelt and inspiring, it completely hit home with exactly what our conferences are about—safety, training, and leadership.
  • Pam Mendiola-Dyer - Region VI VPPPA Board of Directors
  • I just wanted to let you know that we had an AWESOME day with Keni Thomas!! He was absolutely FABULOUS! He tailored his message on leadership and it was exactly what we wanted for our teachers and administrators here in Cherokee.
