Kemy Joseph

Kemy is a highly engaging and empowering speaker. He offers a unique gift of empathetic entertainment which unites people. Whether speaking to students or adults, he has an almost magical way of creating safe spaces where audience members are inspired to connect and share with each another.

This is even more impressive because Kemy wasn’t always a likable or approachable person. His upbringing is fraught with poverty, depression, violence, school suspensions, and encounters with the police. One of his life-changing moments came on his 14th birthday when his dad was hit by a drunk driver on his way to work and later passed away. At that point Kemy realized how much our decisions could negatively impact the lives of others. Fortunately, instead of going further into depression and violence, he decided to turn his life around.

Now as the world’s premier Kindness Coach, Kemy helps people create kinder, more fulfilling lives. His talks on Succeeding with Kindness and Empowering Leadership motivate people to be their best selves by tapping into their limitless potential. He goes a step further by providing them with actionable steps they can use to take charge of their lives and help others do the same.
