About Kevin Kruse - Author and Speaker on Leadership and Employee Engagement:

As a leadership speaker and performance coach, Kevin Kruse has worked with Fortune 500 CEO's, entrepreneurial startup founders, US Marine Corps officers, non-profit leaders and even members of Congress.

In pursuit of the American Dream, Kevin started his first company when he was just 22 years old. He worked around the clock, literally living out of his one-room office and showering each day at the YMCA, before giving up a year later deeply in debt.

But after discovering the power of wholehearted leadership and employee engagement, Kevin went on to start or co-found several, multi-million dollar technology companies, winning both Inc 500 and Best Place to Work awards along the way.

Today, Kevin is a New York Times best-selling author of 6 books - including 15 Secrets Successful People Know About Time Management and Employee Engagement 2.0 - and is one of the most read leadership columnists on Forbes. Trust Across America named Kevin to their Top 100 Business Thought Leaders list. Watch for Kevin's upcoming book Great Leaders Have No Rules - Contrarian Leadership Principles to Transform Your Team and Business - set to launch April, 2019 (Rodale, 2019).

Kevin also finds time to give back through the Kevin Kruse Foundation, which has supported The US Naval War College, Wreaths Across America, The Library Project, The Acumen Fund, Senior Adults for Greater Education, and the Bucks County Health Improvement Partnership.

When not writing or speaking, Kevin is busy juggling life as a single Dad with three kids, in Bucks County, PA.
