Ken Grant has spent half his life connecting people with brands and brands with customers. This includes 20+ years as a brand strategist (agency and consultant), successfully building large brands around a company’s most important asset - their people. To help better influence the employee experience throughout any company, Vivace Leadership was formed to directly aim Ken’s training talents and podcasting experience toward the most critical person on the path to a happy customer: the manager!
Ken’s ability to connect, dig deeper and truly inspire those around him was showcased in his TEDx presentation “Summon Your Super Power” and reinforced in this book: Yoga In A Business Suit. He is naturally inquisitive, demonstrated in his background as a TV reporter and TV personality, segment producer, in addition to being a radio show host/DJ.
Ken's deliberate, witty, Aussie nature is refreshing and shows up in everything in which he is involved. Ken Grant is a Humanization Expert.

Vivace Leadership Brand Values and Attitude:
We are tireless about making a difference and our work makes a difference.
We are unapologetic about our energy and our way of thinking, as it is bold and emboldened - we want the best for those around us!
Our sites are set on reducing the 70% of people that hate their job by working with managers, by developing a new and improved way of being and doing!
We get excited about our content. It is fun and fresh and a little in your face, blending reality (not sugar-coating it), with hope and aspiration.
We are never shy about the fact that good people leave crummy bosses, so our job is to stop that from happening by instilling a more “human” approach to those around them.
We don’t mind coming in and being the bad guys while you look angelic.
We can do the heavy lifting that you might not want to do or can’t do because people have to like you. WE can say (and do) stuff you can’t say/do, but only thought about wanting to say!
