What an Honor
Southwest Michigan First has reached out to Kinetic Affect and included Kirk Latimer in the inaugural group of First 50 emerging and established leaders in the area. It is their endeavor to create “interdisciplinary leadership” in the area, and its powerful. Learn more about this FIRST experience.
It is an honor to be acknowledged as among the top emerging leaders in the area. In a community that is ripe and rich with so much talent and budding leadership. Kinetic Affect has been moving more and more toward true transformational change and participating in First 50 is another step along this path.
First 50 is a year-long commitment and has a limited 40 members. Half of them are emerging leaders, such as Kirk Latimer of Kinetic Affect, and the other half are established leaders in the area. Each time-tested leader is paired with an apprentice, so to speak. Over the course of this year, stronger relationships will be built and a deeper understanding of “leading where you CAN” will be explored.
There is no doubt to Kinetic Affect that true personal and organizational transformation co-exist along with economic development. We are here to prove that through deep personal growth and exploration, we can improve businesses, discover talents, reignite education and support families in our communities.

Hi, I graduated from high school at Kalamazoo Central 3 years ago…I just wanted to let you know that lately, whenever I need something empowering, I listen to your words. Since graduating I’ve moved to New York and I’ve been sharing your words and stories here and you’ve got many fans here now. I hope you’re both doing well, and I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you.-
…I was at Lakeside Academy and attended the classes that were put on by Speak It Forward. I loved and appreciated what you did for me and my fellow peers. It has been almost a year and a half since I left and I’m doing much better now. The things you taught me I still use to this day. Thank you.-
I still wear my shirt from your first performance downtown Kalamazoo. Circa 2006 or so… You guys are the TRUTH!!!-
