Kevin Hall is a highly sought after business consultant, speaker, and coach. He has been recognized for his ground breaking approach to uncovering the hidden, and often secret, meanings of words. In his book, Aspire: Discovering Your Purpose Through the Power of Words (William Morrow), he teaches readers to discover the purest definitions of words, and develop a new leadership vocabulary. By focusing on eleven specific words, Aspire reveals how to use words as building blocks for achievement.
Hall has recently been the keynote speaker for several large hospitality, leadership, and network marketing conferences with audiences of 3,000 or more attendees. He frequently receives feedback that he is the best speaker the company or organization has ever had.
Hall is a former partner in Franklin Quest, makers of the Franklin Day Planner, a company evolved into Franklin Covey. As Vice President of Sales and Training, he helped fuel Franklin's worldwide growth. He is also a cofounder of the Statue of Responsibility envisioned by Dr. Viktor Frankl, the author of Man's Search for Meaning.
Hall is credited with wordsmithing, and trademarking, the original slogan for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, "Ignite the Fire Within." He also serves as a performance coach for a select group of leading CEOs and Olympic athletes.
Hall has been featured in Forbes magazine, Worth magazine, Nation's Restaurant News, Restaurant Business, and on the Food Network. He lives with his wife and children in a beautiful mountain top community outside of Salt Lake City. He also works out of his writing studio near the ocean in sunny Southern California.
