People always remember
training with Ken
Rather than talking just as a victim, he celebrates and embraces what can be learned from the accident that cost him three of his senses.
Unlike many safety training presentations, Ken’s moving and inspirational story grabs the attention of his audience, whether it’s on film (in Hindsight – The Ken Woodward Story and Lessons From A Blind School) or as a speaker at conferences, seminars and workplace
Ken Woodward is a charismatic, likeable and genuine person with a warm personality and a great sense of humour.
The world's most inspiring speaker
In a horrifying workplace accident, Ken Woodward lost his eyesight as well as his sense of taste and smell. It left his family devastated and his colleagues traumatised.
Like all accidents, it could have been prevented. From that moment on he was determined to do all he could to make sure it didn't happen to anyone else.
Since then, his dedication towards creating positive safety cultures and setting new standards has improved the working lives of thousands of people and changed the way hundreds of organisations operate.
Over the last decade he has become a globally recognised figure, providing people with the awareness, mindset and confidence to comfortably approach occupational safety issues with a fresh perspective.
Astonishingly, in one year alone, he made 112 flights, 19 overseas trips and 285 presentations to stop others being hurt.
