Communication Efficiency and Storytelling with Kevin E. West (Episode 047)

Patty Farmer podcast

About Kevin:

Kevin E. West is both a Hollywood veteran television actor and a bad-ass communication Keynote speaker with over 65 plus credits including Guest Stars on The Righteous Gemstones, Hawaii 5-0, Criminal Minds, Bones, Lost, all starting with Matlock in ‘90. Speaking since ‘91, Kevin’s message is often raw, deeply personal, some colorful language and yet directed precisely at each individual in the room. Including more than 1500 speaking appearances, Kevin has also consulted over 1,000 people from 20+ countries on the complexities of pro-activity in any industry.

Yes, Kevin, is a walking contradiction; his humble beginnings looked more like Tom Sawyer at 12 in the movie, Deliverance juxtaposed with 30+ years in Hollywood. He is equal parts creative Pisces, psychologist, smart-ass and redneck third-baseman tough.

He is the founder of the award-winning organization, The Actors’ Network plus several other educational creations, celebrity golf tournaments, L.A. Marathons & baseball.
