Funny Shooting Story - Ken Futch

Funny Shooting Story - Ken Futch

You don’t have to shoot yourself in the head to learn how not to shoot yourself in the foot. Ken Futch has already taken care of that, and he’s ready to tell you how to make the most of whatever life fires your way.

Motivational. Energetic. Insightful. Laugh-out-loud funny.

Ken draws from years of experiences in every imaginable setting and hones his messages into razor-sharp, relatable and resonant works of art. These are just some of the ways people describe Ken and his presentations. A Certified Professional Speaker, with more than twenty years experience entertaining and motivating fortune 100 companies.

From the ESSO station in Burgaw, N.C. to the jungles of Vietnam (and corporate America), Ken has a plethora of uplifting stories in his arsenal.There’s the time a mule stepped on his head, and the time a crazed hog attacked him. His nose won’t ever be quite the same after a fisherman’s boat paddle smashed it. But Ken’s own worst enemy could’ve been himself. Could’ve? That’s right, he shot himself. In the head. Accidentally. But this master of turning negatives into positives, hells into heavens and situations into opportunities says he couldn’t have asked for a more fortunate break—a luckier shot, so to speak. 

“It took a shot through the head to open my mind,” he says.

Ken’s audiences leave his seminars with a new perspective on the daily grind and a fresh outlook on ways to get the absolute most out of their jobs and their lives. Ken tailors his keynote speeches and seminars to your specific needs. He uses his personal experience to deliver your message in an evocative, humorous and thought-provoking manner. He challenges his attendees to break out of the inevitable daily routine and motivates them to take control of their destiny. His unique message centers around each individual over achieving in small incremental changes in their daily routine. Results and feedback from his presentations have been thunderous.

His message is as applicable and inspiring in one’s personal life as in their career.

Learn how to use your own “situations,” and find out:

  • How the right frame-of-mind can facilitate opportunities
  • How to recognize an opportunity buried in routine’s rubble
  • How flat-on-your-face failure can be your best friend
  • How to eliminate communication barriers and make your message relate
  • How to utilize your team’s diversity to create major success
  • How to use all situations to your advantage
  • How to take the high road and still win. Big!
