  • "Every communications leader should have the benefit from coaching from Ken. He's more than "Kenough" (for the unindoctrinated, that's a Barbie movie reference)... he's pure "Kenergy." What a gift that the agency I joined had engaged him to provide leadership coaching! A valued advisor, coach, and friend, Ken's counsel is wise, constructive, on point, and informed by an esteemed career of communications excellence. Genuine, caring, and insightful, he brings out the best in everyone he works with. And the energy reference? He'll graciously remind you that the energy you bring the anything is important and sets the tone for any interaction. That's Kenough for me!"

  • "I attended Ken's CAPRSA Spring Conference 2018 break-out session, “How to Help Your Next-Gen Become Effective Leaders in Their Own Right” and really found it worthwhile, educational, and very informative. Ken is a great presenter and speaker and very engaging with the those in attendance. Two of the key things I took away from the session was "when you recognize the next gen as leaders, then it will motivate them to step up" and also "creating the objective, showing the direction, and then to get out of the way."

  • "I was fortunate to hear not one, but two (!) of Ken's leadership presentations at the 2023 PRSA ICON conference, and learned valuable tips I could put into practice back at the office. His depth of experience in the PR/communications field, combined with his expertise in coaching for leadership, were just the right combination that led to a standing-room-only session during the conference. Ken's passion and sincerity for coaching/helping are evident, whether he's presenting in a crowded room, or chatting one-on-one."

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed Kens presentation,"11 Things You MUST Do Now To More Effectively Lead Your Teams" at PRSA ICON 2023. It was informative and extremely relatable. He's spot on with addressing the leadership environment in any profession. Among the topics covered, Ken's discussion about delegating vs, empowering your team, as well as the value of performance vs. perfection challenged us to be better leaders. I look forward to attending his session at ICON 2024."

  • "Since crossing paths with Ken Jacobs at the PRSA Counselors Academy in Puerto Rico back in 2016, I have had the pleasure of knowing him. At that time, I was working for another PR agency. In 2020, I decided to establish my own PR firm, Jmac PR. Recognizing the need for expert guidance in business development, I turned to Ken for support. Ken's insights and teachings have been transformative. His expertise in business development has provided me with invaluable knowledge and skills, helping me excel in areas that were once challenging. Our collaboration has clarified implementation strategies and identified key areas for growth. I sought Ken's guidance again for fiscal best practices, and once more, his mentorship proved invaluable. His coaching style, which is approachable yet insightful, has empowered me to implement sound financial strategies, putting me in a strong position for sustainable growth. Ken's phenomenal coaching abilities make him an invaluable resource for PR agency owners and stakeholders. His supportive yet challenging approach fosters personal and professional development in a motivating and effective manner. Confidently, I have referred fellow PR professionals and agency owners to Ken, knowing they will greatly benefit from his expertise. As I continue to evolve and grow, I wouldn't hesitate to engage Ken's services again in the future. If you're seeking guidance and mentorship to propel your PR endeavors forward, Ken Jacobs is undoubtedly the person to turn to."

  • "I highly recommend Ken as a leadership speaker/keynote/workshop lead. I took part in Ken's "11 Things You Must Start Doing NOW to Lead More Effectively in 2023" breakout session at the 2023 Public Relations Society of America International Conference in Nashville. He hit it out of the park! Ken's approach is heartfelt - you immediately know that Ken believes in what he shares and has a sincere desire to help others continue on their way to 5-Star Leadership! I look forward to staying connected with Ken and involving him in leadership development activities with my association team."
