Kenny Harris, creativity expert, speaker and all-round great bloke, passed away on Wednesday. He leaves behind a loving family and many, many friends grateful for his presence.
Kenny was he funniest guy I ever met, not to mention being a creative genius. His company, Headsurfing, had clients all over the UK grateful for the shots of creativity he provided. His commitment to the speaking profession was evidenced by the fact that he kept the Scottish region of the Professional Speaking Association running by putting in his own money. On stage, he had audiences crying tears of laughter as he delivered line after line of original humour.
He was my best friend in the speaking world since the day we met at our first speaking conference many years ago. We shared many long slightly woozy evenings together and through our long-standing mastermind group with Lesley Everett and Sean Weafer, were the greatest influence on each others' success in business.
We will all miss him terribly. My thoughts go to his wife Diane and his children Alex and Ellen, as well as the rest of his close-knit family.
Kenny, you were a gem.
