must congratulate you on your presentation which was not only insightful but very inspiring. The research you conducted for your book and the framework you developed to explain your thinking were very helpful for us as a business. Your presentation was authoritative, entertaining and highly informative, and as you know generated a lot of discussion. It was particularly helpful that you were able to bring some ‘colour’ to your findings with the excellent anecdotes. An excellent piece of work, very well presented which will enable us all in Visa to improve or communication skills.Peter Ayliffe, President & CEO, Visa Europe
Kevin presented to our Executive team, including our CEO and twenty five of our senior high potential leaders. Although we know that communication is vitally important in leadership roles, Kevin brought a fresh perspective which engaged and inspired us.
He provides a clear structure around communication which can be applied in different circumstances which resonated with our very pragmatic audience who like practical actions. We enjoyed his use of stories of his own experiences and also examples from his conversations with many of the CEO’s he’s spoken to. He entertained as well as leaving us with some clear messages which we could all immediately take back to our teams and apply.
In addition he was keen to ensure that his message reflected both the culture and focus of G4S currently which made it all the more relevant and interesting.Irene Cowden, Group HR Director, G4S
Kevin’s presentation to my senior managers on his upcoming book The Language of Leaders was extremely interesting and also very useful for everyone. The model really helped both as a simple way for us to understand the key findings but also as a very useful framework tool for helping everyone to develop their leadership communication skills.
I would thoroughly recommend Kevin’s presentation both from the perspective of his speaker skills but also the content which I know will prove extremely useful in terms of developing our senior management leadership communication skills.Beverley Aspinall, Chief Exectuive, Fortnum & Mason
