Biography

Kenny Harris is the "go-to-guy" when you need new ideas, new products and services, and new ways of thinking, to help improve our thinking, our businesses – and our bottom line.
Kenny is the creator of Headsurfing™, a radical method of thinking creatively for individuals, teams and organisations.
His inspiration comes from working with highly creative people in leading advertising and marketing agencies, with major brands and companies – and also from his many years spent as a successful stand-up comedian.
Always fascinated with ideas, and where new ideas come from, he studied the ways “creative” people think and work, and has distilled this knowledge into tools and techniques, attitudes and behaviours which we can all learn, we can all apply, and we can all benefit from.
With a background in both business and entertainment, Kenny’s presentations are a unique mix of inspiration, education, and humour.
His clients include Vodafone, Hilton, First Direct Bank,National Bank of Australia, VisitScotland, Edrington (producers of Cutty Sark, Famous Grouse and Highland Park whiskies), SportScotland, many professional services firms and agencies. He also lectures regularly on Creativity to Advertising and MBA courses.
Kenny is a Fellow of the UK Marketing Society, and also a Fellow of the Professional Speakers’ Association. He is the only person to hold both Fellowships.
