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.

In today’s episode, Jeff Bond and William Smith host a conversation with Ken Ballou, Director, US Banking and Financial Services at Sensedia, an emerging technology company delivering API solutions for companies adopting a more digital, connected, and open strategy. This conversation was hosted at the TAG FinTech South 2022 Conference at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Ken Bellou talks with Jeff and William about how technology has enabled smaller companies to compete with the bigger players,  the importance of conscious leaders contributing through capitalism to elevate humanity, and what he sees as the future of Fintech.
