Ken Nwadike Jr – Leadership Speaker

It’s time for me to start writing again. This will be the location of my daily journal. This year, I’m shifting my focus to be promoted and recognized as an African American Leadership Speaker. My work over the past decade has created many unique opportunities as a Keynote Speaker for me to inspire audiences with a message of unity as an Inspirational Speaker. Currently, if you search Ken Nwadike Jr on Google, you’ll find a lot of articles on my work as a Peace Activist with the Free Hugs Project. I still plan on creating new content in that space, but for now, my work as a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Speaker is important as groups are beginning to meet in person again.
