NSA Kentucky President 2023-2024

Mark Kenny


It is my privilege to serve our NSA Kentucky community as president this year and I invite you to join us.

A few years ago, I felt lonely and frustrated in my own speaking journey. I decided that if I was going to
up my game in the speaking business, I needed to jump into my NSA chapter with two feet. I couldn’t
accomplish my goals or take my business to the next level alone. I am not the same speaker today as I
was several years ago, in large part because of that decision. Whether you are just starting out in your
own speaking journey or you are a seasoned veteran, if you are serious about your own speaking
business, I encourage you to make the same choice.

Our purpose this year is, by the end of year, for all of us to be doing more of the speaking we want to
do, to be better speakers than we are today, and to grow our businesses beyond where they are today.
While we have a stellar lineup of speakers and programs already scheduled to help us, the real value is
in the connections and community you will build as we help each other on this journey.

Join this community today and I look forward to engaging with you!
