Leigh Durst
Top-tier Marketing Consultant
In demand with a bi-costal commute and a large digital footprint, Leigh Durst is often found working at 30,000 feet. A 20-year veteran in the areas of business, operations, customer strategy, e-commerce, digital and social media, Durst is the Principal of Live Path, a top-tier digital and social media consultancy.
Ken is a force to be reckoned with who came to my aid in 2012 at SXSW while I was coordinating 4 events in a 24 hour period with a very high profile tech legend and other talent. He was instrumental in helping us coordinate, execute and secure major media exposure for our events.

I also had the pleasure of working alongside him long enough to witness the magic he works – for other AMAZING clients. What impressed most is the lack of ego driving Ken and his team. They are true excellence junkies who care about people and treat others with incredible respect. I know this is a “trickle down” effect of Ken’s leadership.

The 1680 PR team is a stealth force working for the benefit of major personalities in almost every avenue of the media and entertainment realm (and other arenas as well). They are an invisible hand of influence — and they’d never break a confidence for personal gain. I’d highly recommend Ken and his team for their high integrity, no BS, creative, out of the box thinking and awesome results.

Ken Lingad and 1680PR have been a very integral part of our process of repositioning one of our hotels. He is extremely committed to his clients and goes above and beyond to make sure a project is successful. He becomes a part of your team and not just an external consultant – an extremely committed, creative thinker who is extraordinarily knowledgable about the business of public relations, social media, and global trends.

1680PR is a Team you can certainly depend on to do whatever it takes to get the job done!

Pam Jung - Former VP of Corporate Branding and Development, Heritage Hotels and Resorts
Ken Lingad conducted several master-class social media campaign strategy workshops and debrief sessions for Women Innovate Mobile and Levo League staff and interns. Eye-opening sessions on the nuances and enormous complexities of the social business world – growing up on Facebook and being social media savvy is not sufficient when the focus is brand growth or new product launch. Women Innovate Mobile directly benefited from Ken’s deep knowledge and expertise…
Kelly Hoey, Business Strategist / Forbes-listed Personality
Ken succeeded where others failed. I had been beating my head up against an issue for 2 years. In a few intense days, Ken was able to shift our perspectives completely and open up a world of possibilities!

As the weeks pass since our session, the ways in which my team and I are newly empowered continue to unfold. No foo-foo stuff here. Ken’s engagement with my team delivered rock solid, concrete results. Branding, Identity, engagement models, complex organizational systems, media, digital, customer engagement,… the list goes on.

I look forward to bringing him back for more!
