About Kevin (adapted from his LinkedIn profile)
Kevin Kelly is a leading authority on the success principles of entrepreneurship, leadership, sales and motivation.
Raised among a small entrepreneurial family retail business, he has been selling and negotiating, listening to and serving customers from a very young age. After graduating from University College Galway with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1987, he proceeded to break sales record in each of the companies he worked for in the construction and manufacturing industries. In 1990 he started his company, Advanced Marketing Ltd.
He’s always been fascinated by what makes people tick, little surprise then that he is now seen as a human behavior expert. Kevin coined the phrase “Xceptionalize”, which challenges organisations and individuals to focus upon the exceptional execution of those activities that really contribute the most to success.
Kevin actively keynotes at corporate meetings and conferences throughout Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas. From Fortune 500 companies to prestigious associations (e.g. The Million Dollar Round Table), local chambers of commerce to national investment and growth promotion agencies and more, he’s presented to diverse audiences.
Do grab a copy of the book: DO! – The pursuit of xceptional execution. You should also check out Kevin’s site: www.kevinkellyunlimited.com, follow him on Twitter @kkunlimited and connect with him on LinkedIn here.
