Coffee with Ken

In March of 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic spread and lead to stay at home orders around the globe, Ken quickly began hosting a thought leadership series called Coffee with Ken. The conversations have been intended to address a broad spectrum of topics from issues in business, politics, social impact and innovation. The CWK conversation series has a regular audience and has had thousands of listeners. Previous speakers include Joe Stigliltz (Nobel Economist), Suzanne Clark (CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce), Dr. Carla Hayden (Librarian of Congress), Jonelle Procope (CEO of the Apollo Theater), David Rubenstein (Co-Founder of the Carlyle Group) and dozens of others. As the former Chairman of the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, Ken believes strongly in the power of convening thought leaders for timely discussions on the most relevant topics.
