Kim Evensen

Founder and CEO of the Brothers Organization

He now consults internationally, providing research and lectures about the importance of male friendships and the positive effects arising from strong male relationships. Kim is known for his incredible way of connecting with people - whether speaking to hundreds of individuals at once, or a one-on-one conversation. His mantra as a leader and a speaker is that he'd rather be "a bit less professional and a bit more personal" in his meetings with people. He leads Brothers and the team with passion, confidence and vulnerability, and his knowledge and drive to empower boys' and men's friendships is nothing less than inspiring. He has written two books on the topic of male friendship: The Real Bro Code (2020) and Brothers (2019). (Taken from wearebrothers.org)
