I have worked with him for over a decade. He started as a corporate coach, but is really as much as a life coach as anything else. What separates him from anyone else I have ever met is that he can spend a short amount of time with anybody and ( intuitively!) understand how the individual is wired for success. It truly is a gift. As I mentioned, I still work with him (personally and professionally), and actually met with him yesterday. He is particularly useful at times of transition, and I am almost positive you would find meeting with him useful and affirming. - John Ingram, Chairman of Ingram Industries Inc.

Ken Cope is one of the most gifted people I have ever experienced. He can spend an hour with somebody and know what is right about them – know what makes them tick! Over the past 10 years, I have worked with Ken on myself. During this time, I have developed a firm grip of who I really am and what my life purpose is. With respect to my business, I would never make an important hire without having Ken interview the finalist to make sure that the individual’s values and core nature are consistent with my own and my expectations for those who work with me in my business. - John Ingram, Chairman of Ingram Industries Inc.

I tell other people that Ken has "an innate ability to see and describe your soul within minutes of meeting you." Throughout our relationship, Ken has helped me work through some of the toughest times in my life, both personally and professionally. I'm a better person with him in my corner. - Eric Jackson, CEO at Element 47

Ken is an exceptional executive coach with a solid track record of success in working with C-Suite leadership. Beyond Ken's core competencies as an executive coach, he is extremely intuitive and perceptive in identifying the nuanced gaps that once addressed will strengthen a senior executive's leadership capabilities. - Wayne Keegan, Chief HR Officer at Ingram Content Group, Inc.

Ken does and exceptional job of working with us both internally at FCA Venture Partners and with our portfolio companies.

His understanding of relationship dynamics allows him the advantage to evaluate, recommend and build unity at the family or corporate levels.
