Kai Kight uses music as a metaphor to inspire individuals and organizations around the world to compose paths of imagination and fulfillment. Inspired by his mother who, when diagnosed with cancer, revealed regrets of not bringing her ideas to the world, Kai is on a mission to spark a global mindset shift in which ingenuity is the norm, not the exception. In his emotionally powerful presentations, Kai performs original music and candidly shares stories from his own transformation as an artist, translating these insights into takeaways that audiences can infuse into their own lives and work environments. As a musician, he has performed his original music for audiences around the world, from the White House to the Great Wall of China. As a speaker, he has created impactful experiences for a wide range of audiences internationally, including for clients such as The Walt Disney Company, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and the Super Bowl-winning Seattle Seahawks. His mesmerizing and original violin performance beautifully becomes a sonic metaphor for the core of his message: to inspire people to compose unique ideas in a world that celebrates conformity.





On behalf of Vertex Pharmaceuticals, we want to thank Kai for an outstanding event! Kai's violin opening and his energy during the presentation was a great way to end the week. Innovation is key at Vertex and seeing the advice Kai gave will enable us to bring harmony to our workplace especially as we move back to an in-person environment! We look forward to working with Kai in the future (hopefully live). Thank you for this great keynote!

Kai was a huge success, our participants loved him, his visuals, performance, and really connected with his ‘artist vs musician’ message – with many quoting it later on during the event. It was actually difficult to tell who our audience appreciated more – Kai or Seth Godin, so that’s a huge compliment to Kai! He was such a delight to work with in the prep stage too and delivered even more than we had hoped for.
– Nicole Kaijser | Learning & Programme Officer | European Association for International Education
Kai was a delight to work with, you could hear a pin drop throughout his 45 minutes on stage, that was how well he held the audience in his hand. His message was well-received by the audience and his willingness to mix at the cocktail function with a variety of our people for close to three hours made all of us feel very special.
– CEO, Barfoot & Thompson
Kai is an absolute powerhouse of raw talent whose passion rips through a crowd like wildfire! Kai is a sure bet to engage with any audience and leave them moved, captivated, and wanting more!
– Landmark Ventures
Both bold and yet sweetly provocative, Kai finished with a crowd of 500 people on their feet and yelling "bravo"! If you are looking for an energetic, motivational, and inspirational speaker and performer, I highly recommend Kai Kight."
