Kevin Gaskell set out to be a Civil Engineer and worked in the construction industry on a number of high profile projects before exploring another path. Four years in management accounting gave him an excellent understanding of the numbers that make a business work.

Kevin Gaskell energy and leadership has helped companies to achieve world class levels of customer service and financial performance.

Kevin Gaskell | Business Leadership

INSPIRE YOUR LEADERS

Having achieved more than every ‘Dragon’ (with the possible exception of Peter Jones) Kevin has been hands on in business for more than three decades. With a reputation for turning round world class brands, He believes you can rescue a company in 100 days and turn it into a hugely successful enterprise in 1000 days.

Kevin used the same techniques of inspired leadership to transform businesses and to create successful teams to overcome some of the world’s toughest environments – the Artic, Antarctic, unforgiving mountain summits and the Atlantic Ocean.

Today Kevin Gaskell actively chairs, invests and partners with a small number of companies helping them to achieve market leading growth and to manage change successfully.

Kevin is a natural communicator with the ability to lead, build and motivate a management team and to engage the team throughout an organisation.

Speaker
A great speech has many elements, but it needs to do two things:

    • Engage the audience from start to finish
    • Energise them to take action

The second won’t happen without the first and the first alone doesn’t get results!

Kevin Gaskell has a unique talent for engaging audiences – and for inspiring them to take action. His experiences of driving turnarounds, achieving 500% profit growth and transforming local companies into global players were acquired within the corporate environment.

Adventurer

The joy of life comes from encounters with new experiences
Like many people who enjoy outdoor activities, Kevin became an adventurer ‘by accident’ or rather by degrees. Growing up in the mountains of North Wales he was always looking to spend the weekends exploring the paths and rock climbs of Snowdonia.

As Kevin Gaskell ambition to explore the wilder parts of the world grew so he looked to travel wilder and further. Following the loss of his sister to cancer he decided to use his exploring to raise monies for charitable causes.

Since then Kevin Gaskell has helped to fund a new cancer treatment centre and to support Alan Chambers MBE in the development of Extreme Classrooms™ an outdoor learning experience making a difference to the lives of vulnerable teenagers.
