Testimonials

  • "Ken Jacobs conducted two valuable leadership development sessions with mid-career students in the Syracuse University Newhouse School's Executive Master's Program in Communications Management, which I direct. He truly engaged with the attendees to get them to think strategically about leadership, while also offering practical insights they can (and did) bring back to their organizations. To a person, these professionals were grateful to Ken for the value and personal commitment he brought to their leadership journeys, and I strongly recommend him as a trusted source for providing leadership development and communications counsel in any sector--agency, corporate or not-for-profit."
