MY STORY: MY JOURNEY
As a brand coach, brand journalist, college professor, and social entrepreneur, my life revolves around connecting people through story.
For over 20 years, I have been helping brands tell their story. I have used my creativity and communication skills to guide corporations and organizations to connect with people all over the world. If you want to know the true definition of Ken DeGilio, two words stand out: connections and creativity. My legacy is about connecting people and keeping creativity alive.
I’ve had many titles throughout my career and as a result I have been able to grow my expertise in branding, strategic marketing, nonprofit management, and by providing real-world branding lessons as a college professor.
When I'm not in the classroom teaching branding, I'm helping clients as "Brand Coach." You can also find me at Starbucks working on my first eBook, Brand Like A Boss or creating content for my new online courses for the real estate industry. Or, I might be helping out my family, exploring central Florida's Space Coast or volunteering.
One of my long-term goals is to develop an online media hub for local real estate agents while incorporating volunteering and community development. My goal is to put my experience in social entrepreneurship together with my digital marketing skills to create an impact that will eventually reach all over the country. I am committed to spending more time each year giving back and helping others. I am proud to have been recognized with the President’s Volunteer Service Award for my volunteer efforts with a central Florida organization.
I have always had a love for education, learning, and helping others grow to reach their true potential. I received my master's from Full Sail University in Internet Marketing and earned a Master of Science degree from Florida State University and I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Advertising from the University of Florida. I have been a professor in the Entertainment Business Master’s program for ten years and continue to take classes and expand my knowledge and expertise.
