As the CEO of Chat With Leaders Media and Executive Partner at People-First Elevation Team, I lead a dedicated team specializing in thought leadership development, stakeholder engagement, and effective global communication. We excel in producing corporate podcasts, meetings, and events to drive customer and team member acquisition, retention, and engagement. Additionally, we provide speaker coaching to empower thought leaders within our clients' organizations.
My approach is grounded in Conscious Capitalism, fostering leaders with a values-driven, pro-capitalism perspective. I firmly believe in business's transformative power, not only as a commercial venture but as a catalyst for lasting social and generational impact.
Beyond my professional role, I cherish my most significant leadership role as a father to three children, alongside my wife Katie. This personal aspect deeply influences my professional path, aligning my business strategies with family values, faith, and community service in Atlanta, GA.

However, he most enjoys being at home with his wife and son in Marietta, Georgia to cheer on the Atlanta Braves and Georgia Bulldogs. Known for his grassroots appeal and southern charm, Kevin speaks extensively at businesses, to educators, and within the faith community.
Why is there a false narrative that servant leaders have to be “soft”?
While considering core values and how that’s been successful for Chick-fil-A’s Leadership Academy program, how have you had to consider making those principles relevant to audiences/regions where their foundation of values may be different?
Kevin’s life and career passion is speaking and writing about leadership. He talks more about his inspiration around leaders having an influence that leads to action.
Kevin talks about the importance of always seeking a better perspective as a leader. “How you view things changes how you do things.” He talks about how a changing perspective to lead to radically different results can help us move out of COVID-19 into a brighter future.
