KENT J. WESSINGER, PhD.

AUTHOR, KEYNOTE SPEAKER, EDUCATOR, STRATEGIC ENTREPRENEUR

Kent Wessinger’s unique path of life has provided him with amazing experiences, significant relationships around the world, and a broad perspective of life. Having lived in the rural mountains of Jamaica, next to the sea on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, and on the south shore of St John, U.S. Virgin Islands; his life has been shaped through deep relationships in cultures beyond his upbringing in Atlanta, Georgia. Recognizing the value that perspectives from other cultures add to his life, he has had the privilege of spending significant time in South Africa, Fiji, Costa Rica and an Arawak Indian village in the Amazon Basin of southern Guyana. Each piece of Kent’s unique journey has collectively grown him as an author, educator, and entrepreneur.

Kent places a high priority on understanding and creating paths of sustainable growth for corporate, organizational, and social cultures. Recognizing that our truest identity is established through the development, ownership and implementation of innovative ideas of value; he believes that every culture has the opportunity to secure sustainable growth when allowed to freely access environments of innovative practice. However, his research emphatically reveals that when environments of entrepreneurship and innovative practice are strategically suppressed or omitted, inequality and instability abound. As a result, Kent seeks to “Give Life” to cultures, corporations and organizations through the tools of growth developed in his create2elevate lab.
