His main effort is to promote development, provide motivation and give inspiration to leaders and managers and offer practical solutions with strong anecdotal evidence from the army and working with business.

In 1994 with the help of Diana, Princess of Wales he took 12 disadvantaged young people to the heart of Africa for a 500-mile trek over desert and mountainous terrain. But - perhaps ironically - he only became famous when he led a team of women into the jungle of Borneo for the TV Show - Jungle Janes. Ken's challenge was to turn a group of British women - none of whom had faced anything like this before - into a cohesive team fit enough to take on the jungle. Millions of viewers found the journey an inspiration. Ken was subsequently involved in the design and development of the highly successful 'I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here'.

A powerful and charismatic speaker, Ken's comparison between leading hardened army platoons into the jungle - and leading the women across the jungle - provides a fascinating insight into pressure, survival, teamwork and motivation. His main effort is to promote development, provide motivation and give inspiration to leaders and mangers.
