Kenyon’s Bio


Kenyon Salo is one of the top keynote speakers and trainers in the fields of inspiration, leadership, and adventure.

One of only five members on the Denver Broncos Thunderstorm Skydive Team, he is seen each week during game season flying into the Denver Broncos Stadium at 60+mph, ending with a soft tip-toe landing on the ten yard line. He brings to the stage over 20+ years of successful audience engagement through humor, awe-inspiring moments, prolific storytelling, and ‘edge-of-the seat’ content.

Gift


Maybe there are people out there right now and they're saying, I've got a message, I've got a story, I've got something to share. I always felt like I should be on stage. I would like to pivot in this way and learn about speaking. The opportunity here is to join me, the team and our community of speakers that are up and coming.


It couldn't be a better time. Understand that what you do now shows up in six months. I'm telling people start now, so that you're strong six months from now, when the world opens up, and you're strong and ahead of the game.  Join me there, and I'll jump on a free live call with you.


I will do 30 minutes of speaker strategy to understand your goals and help you get there. Click the link below for your free speaker strategy session.

Kenyon’s Advice


The number one thing that I want to leave with you today is to say yes, say yes. When you're thinking about saying no, and things like time, money, fear and responsibilities come up. Just say yes. Let the house figure itself out later.  It will all work out. It always does. Simply say yes and let the house figure itself out.
