About E-QuipUs

Keith Burnett – Executive Director, EquipUs.org

Keith is a lifelong learner, gifted communicator and out-of-the-box thinker. 

That combination has enabled him to equip volunteer groups for life-changing work among the people of Kenya, Maasai tribes on the Serengeti, Germany, Spain, Belarus, Australia, the jungles of Central America, the Dominican Republic as well as all three nations of North America.

These challenging experiences have allowed Keith to learn from various cultures and how to make a positive impact in each one. Those real-life lessons and experiences have been harrowing as well as hilarious, but also rewarding and transformative for all involved. And all of it has combined to give Keith a unique perspective on what it takes to build effective, productive teams that succeed in making life better.

Keith is the founder of EquipUs Inc. and currently serves this non-profit as Executive Director. In that role, he works with colleges, universities, businesses, churches and civic groups to staff volunteer teams and to fund the work that brings sustainable, holistic change to impoverished communities.

And bringing people together from such diverse backgrounds lies well within Keith’s career experiences. Those include time in the corporate workplace, entrepreneur/business owner, pastor, church planter, consultant, and pioneering a successful, new department for R.O.W. (international exploration and development). Sharing from his rich history and unique experiences, Keith not only entertains audiences but provides real-world examples of what can be achieved when helping hands come together.
