I have known Ken Dolan-Del Vecchio for over 25 years. Throughout that time I have been inspired by the messages that Ken conveys so articulately in training, speeches, and in his writing. He has been a frequent and highly sought after trainer here at the New Jersey Coalition to End Domestic Violence.

Jane Baldwin ShivasExecutive Director, New Jersey Coalition to End Domestic Violence

Ken is an amazing speaker, comfortable in front of everything from speaking at a conference with 300 participants to being interviewed on television, to working one-on-one with individuals. His passion, intelligence, and commitment to his message is evident regardless of audience size.

Ken’s manner of presentation created a safe and nurturing atmosphere for our large group. He made a personal connection with many in the audience who were hurt, grieving, coping, and/or healing. Great speaker, wonderful listener. His sensitivity touched my heart and engaged the audience. He was an absolute pleasure to work with.

Helene OConnor, Director, Palmer Public Library, Palmer, MA

Refreshingly honest, Ken Dolan-Delvecchio challenges audiences to examine assumptions and embark upon fresh paths to understanding and action.  His “use of self” in communicating ideas about what it means to be a healthy being on a healthy planet speaks of empathy, and informed thought leadership.

Powerful. Thought-provoking. Interactive. Informative. Hopeful. These words come to mind every time Ken Dolan-Del Vecchio facilitates one of his many workshops, key note addresses or speaking engagements.  No matter the industry or the audience, Ken demonstrates an amazing ability to capture, and keep attendees engaged.  From a group of healthcare workers, to an auditorium filled with teachers, to women living in a shelter, to executives sitting around a board room, Ken adapts his presentations to meet the needs of those in the room, yet does so in a unique way that not only educates each participant but helps them to think about what they just learned using a new or different lens.

Ken has a unique ability to connect with his audience.  Whether an intimate gathering or a large ballroom with hundreds of people, Ken demonstrates an empathetic style that allows him to tailor his message to the needs of his audience.  Ken’s philosophies of compassion and fairness have permeated through every interaction I have either had with him or observed of him.  He believes in community and empowering that community to flourish.
