Ambassador Barbara Barrett endorsement


I met Barbara Barrett when she was US Ambassador to Finland. She is one of the most accomplished people I have ever known: politician, businesswoman, attorney, diplomat, as well as, the United States Secretary of the Air Force.

She was the CEO of the American Management Association, teaches at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, has sat on a several corporate Boards, is an instrument-rated pilot, and is a cattle and bison rancher.


Since her days in Helsinki, we have stayed in touch and assisted each other from time to time. My thanks to Barbara for this endorsement of “Exploding Turkeys and Spare Trousers, Adventures in global business.”

“Ken’s global career inspired these life lessons and colorfully presented leadership precepts. With clever humor combined with common sense he delivers wisdom that enriches and enlightens the reader. Explore the world while sampling bite-sized morsels from every delicious page.”

-Barbara M. Barrett

US Secretary of the Air Force (2019-2021) and US Ambassador to Finland (2008-2009)
