Ken Schmidt - Keynote Speaker, Consultant, Best-selling Author, Former Harley-Davidson Communications Director, Torque Sessions Co-founder.

Ken's a leadership advisor to more than 1,000 businesses worldwide including household brands in virtually all industries. So between that and a busy speaking schedule, he gets around alot. He was part of the turnaround team that elevated Harley-Davidson to global dominance, which makes him seem cooler than he really is but it works for him so he rolls with it. He's the best-selling author of “Make Some Noise: The Unconventional Road to Dominance” and co-author of "100 Years of Harley-Davidson," which is the best-selling motorsports book of all time. His newest venture, Torque Sessions , trains leaders to improve their business's competitiveness and gives him an excuse to hang with the legendary Martin Flaherty.

When he's not working, he can be found riding his motorcycles, fishing, hunting, sitting in ballparks with his wife or randomly moving things around in his garage. Also he really likes cheese.
