Ken Gronbach

Ken GronbachKenneth W. Gronbach is a gifted keynote speaker and nationally recognized author, expert and futurist in the field of Demography and Generational Marketing. He makes the science of shifting demography come alive with real life examples which make it relevant to today’s culture, business climate and economy. With nearly three decades experience in retail advertising and marketing, Ken saw the direct results of shifting demographics in his clients’ profits. Eventually, his passion for the subject changed the direction of his career, to the benefit of readers of his books and attendees of his keynotes and other presentations.

As a Keynote speaker, Ken entertains his audiences with his own special brand of wit, humor and common sense, making complicated concepts clear with real-world explanations anyone can easily understand. Ken’s overall perspective is macro – a view from 30,000 feet, and very big picture. Even non-technical audiences will take away immediately usable information from his presentations. Ken is always positive, upbeat, and pro-America.

Custom research: Business prospects rise and fall according to the critical mass of customers heading toward them. Demographers are able to forecast markets, societal phenomena, and economics with uncanny accuracy because they count the large groups of people who drive economic events, not wealth or fiscal policy in isolation. Solid, objective, impartial demographic information is available from the micro zip-code to the macro continent, while Ken’s uniquely detailed demographic research and analysis has become mission-critical for a growing number of executive-level clients who understand the essential wisdom of using historic human data in addition to transaction records to predict future results.

Ken, I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful keynote presentation at the CICA conference. I got such great feedback from colleagues throughout the conference . They loved your style, content – and your ability to handle an earthquake in the midst of your presentation (a rare art form). I’m sure this one will go down in history!

Ken, I wanted to once again tell you how much we appreciated your presentation to our Economic Breakfast.  Comments by attendees have been off the charts. Given that the audience was made up primarily of key business people and elected officials from throughout Southern Idaho and that they were impressed says a lot.

A few of the comments were “easy to understand”, “best program ever”, “great thoughts for my strategic planning”, “Ken’s use of humor gave me mile posts to remember different points”, “hope you bring him back again” to “I want to bring him to my annual board and management retreat”.  …  I have never received as many comments by email, telephone or face to face as I did this year.  We will definitely want you to come back and update us.

Look forward to seeing and working with you in the future.

Just a quick note, Ken, to thank you for the great job you did July 23rd in D.C. when you kicked off the BPSA Annual Meeting. As I suspected, the crowd was buzzing the rest of the day regarding the content and positive nature of your presentation. Perfect!

I can attest to Ken’s session. I got him in front of 70 manufacturing association CEO’s and numerous hired him. He first spoke to our group in April 2009 when the economy tanked and everything he said would happen is taking place. His information is very compelling because it’s based on facts and numbers, not news reports, half truths and emotional election speeches.

The responses we received from the group on your presentation were all extremely positive – some even mentioned your presentation was the highlight of the event. We look forward to future projects and events with you.

I had the pleasure of seeing Ken speak yesterday at an event hosted by the University of Pittsburgh and PNC bank. His presentation was highly entertaining, thought provoking and very informative. He had my attention exclusively for 2 hours. He does this far better than anyone else I have heard in the past.

Ken, thanks for joining us this evening – you were a hit! Many people commented that they could have listened to you all night. We may need to have you come back for a different venue and crowd.

Thanks for being our keynote speaker! You were a huge success. So much so, that I need to order more books!

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your presentation at the Daimler Truck Series in Las Vegas last week. I have been to numerous events such as this, and your keynote was (by far) the best and most informative that I have ever witnessed. I am currently reading your book and reliving the experience all over again.

You were very professional to work with, high energy and yet low maintenance and did as you promised – you made me look good.

Ken Gronbach as a keynote speaker provided what may have been the most significant address our industry has heard in the past two decades…91% of the audience members rated him either excellent or very good.
Joseph Budzinski

Gronbach caught almost everybody off guard with a wildly funny and fascinating presentation. From start to finish, he had the audience in the palm of his hand while he covered everything from multi generational households in America to the coming Chinese economic crisis none of us knew existed.

Based on all the positive feedback, Ken “hit it out of the park”. Ken had the perfect combination for keeping our audience tuned in…facts & stats…which our manufacturing/engineering group loves, along with your energetic and engaging presentation style!
