With a passion to turn every leader into a servant leader, Ken Blanchard shares his insightful and powerful message with audiences around the world through speeches, consulting services, and best-selling books. Universally characterized by his friends, colleagues, and clients as one of the most influential and compassionate leadership experts in the world, Blanchard is respected for his lifetime of groundbreaking research and thought leadership. In fact, few people have influenced the day-to-day management of people and companies more than Blanchard.
When Blanchard speaks, he speaks from the heart with warmth and humor. No matter how large the audience, he is able to communicate with each person as if the two of them were alone and talking one on one. Blanchard is a sophisticated storyteller with a knack for making the seemingly complex easy to understand.

In addition to being a renowned speaker and consultant, Blanchard is a trustee emeritus of the board of trustees at his alma mater, Cornell University, and he also teaches students in the Master of Science in Executive Leadership Program at the University of San Diego.

In the past three decades, he has authored or co-authored 60 books whose combined sales total more than 21 million copies. His groundbreaking works—including Raving Fans, The Secret, and Leading at a Higher Level, to name just a few—have been translated into more than 42 languages. In 2005, Blanchard was inducted into Amazon’s Hall of Fame as one of the top 25 best-selling authors of all time.
