We create live programs to help spread the word that “passion,” “success” and “Kentucky” are not mutually exclusive terms. Kentucky to the World (KTW) enhances Kentucky’s image by showcasing the talent, ingenuity, and excellence of outstanding men and women with strong Kentucky ties. By doing that, we are a catalyst for inspiring everyone – no matter their age, geography, or circumstance – to promote a positive narrative about Kentucky and to become image changers themselves.

Check out Kentucky to the World’s Republic Bank Foundation Speaker Series, a collection of people who illustrate the creativity, drive, and success that make Kentucky great.
