About Kevin Kelly - Motivational Leadership and Sales Speaker:

Kevin Kelly is an internationally acclaimed Speaker, NSA member, best-selling author and expert on the execution strategies underpinning Sales, Leadership and Entrepreneurial success. His focus is on moving organizations, large and small to Do!, to execute, and to move in the direction of their dreams and vision.  Kevin is the message as he lives, breathes and sleeps the DO! ethos every day of his life.

From the age of six, Kevin was selling in his family retail environment. On graduating with a Marketing degree Kevin, consistently broke sales records in each of companies he worked for culminating in him being continuously head hunted. Finally in 1990 , (after being offered a job by an Italian business man who couldn’t speak English) Kevin honored his entrepreneurial DNA and set up his own company, Advanced Marketing.

In 1996 Kevin committed to writing a Best Selling book on motivation – “How? When You Don’t Know How”  which sold 15,000 copies, an unparalleled feat for his native Ireland. Kevin also learned a very valuable lesson in terms of Doing and execution: knowledge may give you enough reasons not to act but Do! it anyway and be prepared to end up in a place you recognize and accept as better than your starting point. Since then he has written four more books, including the first ever graphic novel which aims to educate the next generation on the key skills of emotional intelligence.

His most recent book is the critically acclaimed “DO! The Pursuit of Xceptional Execution”, in which he uncovers the success strategies of the Leaders of some of the most exciting start-ups on the planet. Tom Peters described it as “the book I would have loved to have written.”

Staying true to his Irish roots, Kevin is a master storyteller who has worked around the world with Fortune 500 companies and prestigious associations like the Million Dollar Round Table. He has consulted with some of the biggest brands on the planet, including Microsoft, for whom he developed a unique video series for their World Wide Partner Community.
