The Speaker

Kenny Nguyen is the CEO/Co-Founder of ThreeSixtyEight, a creative agency whose mission is to challenge common thinking to create an uncommon future. Since its inception, the agency has helped underdogs advance their causes through uncommon interactive experiences. Through the success of the agency’s work, ThreeSixtyEight aims to help the perception of their hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, a city known for the underdog, become known as the creative epicenter of the south.

Prior to ThreeSixtyEight, Kenny co-founded Big Fish Presentations, a company that focused on ridding the world of boring presentations through high-quality presentation design, presentation coaching, and speechwriting.

During his time at Big Fish Presentations, he co-authored the McGraw-Hill published book The Big Fish Experience: Create Memorable Presentations That Reel in Your Audience, now published in three different languages.

Outside his agency, he is an investor in Soji: Modern Asian restaurant, frequent speaker, and advocate for AAPI professionals looking to find their voice in leadership.

He also serves on the US Chamber’s Small Business Council and supports STARS (workers stilled through alternative routes) as an advisory council member of Opportunity@Work.
