About Ken

davis-headshots-16Ken Davis is one of the country’s most sought after motivational and inspirational speakers. His mixture of side-splitting humor and his powerful insights on living fully alive have inspired audiences around the world.

Okay! I confess that I actually wrote the above sentence.  However, I could not bear to begin the sentence with, “I am one of the most sought after speaker in the universe etc”   But I can’t pretend someone else is writing this, so here goes.

I am an award winning author of 12 books. The film “Fully Alive” based on my latest book by the same name was shown in theaters across the U.S. and is now enjoying a popular run on Netflix.  I have kept a full calendar speaking to a diverse group of corporate and faith based audiences around the world.

I am president of Ken Davis Productions and Lighten Up ministries which produce inspirational, and motivational live shows, DVDs, books, seminars and conferences designed to make a positive difference in the quality of people’s lives.

I was born in beautiful Northern Minnesota and lived there until my blood began to freeze.  I now live in Franklin TN with my wife Diane.

I am in love with one wife, Diane, five grandchildren, and two daughters.  Because I love those people  so much I have decided to let my two sons in law live. I am an intensely competitive athlete with no athletic ability to back it up.  I regularly compete in triathlons, play racquetball, try to work out an hour a day and occasionally sleep in.  I excel at competitive sleeping.

The Dallas Morning News said of me, “One of the funniest comedians to come down the pike.” but that was 30 years ago.  I’ve gotten much better since then.

Boastful resume and attempts at humorous self deprecation aside, I can promise you this.  Whether you bring my live show to your community, decide to spice up your next corporate convention, or invite me to speak to your church community, I will custom design an unforgettable experience that will leave you laughing, thinking and ready to live more fully alive.

I love seeing auditoriums of people laugh until they require medical attention,  I love to awaken in my audience the courage to raise above circumstances and the passion to live Fully Alive!  Something tells me that the same desire burns in you as well.
