Ken Allen


Husband, father, storyteller. When I’m not in front of the room at work, I’m in front of my laptop at home. Busily writing detective fiction. Or any type of fiction really. I came across my passions of writing and facilitating quite by accident – I didn’t seek out either, yet am very fortunate to be able to spend time doing both. My journey has taken me from a graduate to the world of innovation to building capability in places like Mozambique and Mexico.

I love energising people and provoking connection, change and creativity. I genuinely believe that things can be better; from the way companies engage their people, the way leaders lead, the way teams solve problems to the way people interact with each other. I get a kick out of seeing people’s light bulbs ablaze, a twinkle in their eye, a smile on their face, and a nod of the head to show they get it.

When the day ends with handshakes and high fives, I know I’ve made a difference to their lives.
