Danny K

Keynote Topics

“Before people hear me deliver a keynote, they’re confused about what I’m speaking about and if I can actually do it! But after five minutes, the audience gets it. It’s almost like a show with a twist!”

“My speaking is another chapter in my performance career. It’s still performance, even though it’s more speaking than singing.”

“There’s a lot about me that people don’t know, which is one of my main motivations for public speaking.”

“Having lived as a public figure for almost 20 years in South Africa, one of the things that I may have communicated poorly is some of the failures and challenges I experienced along the way. My talk provides a voyeuristic look at my life.”

“One of my themes is the common humanity we all share, whether we’re rich or poor, famous or obscure.”

“The art of facing rejection is a big theme.”

“The celebrity currency I have got to spend through SHOUT is a privilege – when you are given the gift of position, fame or money you should give back in South Africa. I am a huge believer in pay-it-forward social entrepreneurship.”

“Whether Danny K is talking to a CEO or the company’s tea lady, my message is that everyone has faced rejection and tragedy and been forced to evolve to be relevant or change when the situation calls for it. My talk is for everyone.”

“My story could be as inspirational as anyone else’s story – the difference is that I sing. My music gives my presentation an edge.”
