With a father who died too young from working overtime in three different businesses to support a family of nine, Ken DeWitt learned early in life that working hard doesn’t always accomplish what it’s supposed to.
That lesson still fuels DeWitt’s passion for helping entrepreneurs build businesses that allow them to live a lifestyle of freedom.
During his 30-year career as a serial entrepreneur and business advisor, DeWitt has shown more than 100 companies how to get MORE of what they want from their business, and less of what they don’t.
As a speaker, DeWitt delivers exciting content from the national bestseller Traction that arms entrepreneurs and CEOs with a simple, powerful set of tools they can begin using right away to:

“Ken did a 90-minute overview of EOS to my Convene / Genesis CEO peer group in June of 2016. He utilized the short time he had to introduce EOS and then allow the team members to direct him in going deeper into the two key areas they sought to learn the most from.
“Ken engaged my team and managed to deliver great value in a short amount of time. Most importantly, I witnessed Ken’s heart for truly serving others and not worrying about what he would gain from this. He was truly focused on speaking to the needs of the team members in the room. I’d call that servant leadership at its finest.”
– Harris Wheeler, Chair – Convene
“In speaking to my Key Executive Vistage group in April 2016, Ken’s presentation was valuable on processes and tactics for leading teams and managing individuals. Ken was very adept at listening to the members, tailoring his training to meet their interests, delving deeper into subjects they sought more focus, and moving in directions responsive to their requests. My members left with new strategies and tools which they could immediately apply in more effectively leading their businesses.”
– Bill Mack, Houston Vistage Chair – W.G. Mack Consulting LLC
“The purpose of the Last Mile Delivery Forum is to give participants practical and usable information they can take home to improve their business performance, and Ken’s talk really delivered on that goal.
“The information he presented was invaluable! It truly hit home with our attendees. As Ken spoke, I looked out across the audience and saw most people taking notes. Afterward, I was approached by several folks who said that Ken had shown them their business through a new lens and they were excited about getting back to work and using Ken’s material to make changes in the way they do business.
“I would say that Ken’s session was one of the best presented at our three-day event.”
“Ken’s own entrepreneurial experience really helps make him a top-notch facilitator. He isn’t just a tactician; he has actually been in the business owner’s shoes and understands the problems they face. Many coaches might be able to teach these principles, but the fact that Ken has applied them brings a much greater depth to the training.“
