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. The company dedicated itself initially to increasing the sales of small and medium businesses in addition to exhaustively researching the area of personal and business potential.
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.
Kevin’s keynotes consistently deliver an interactive conversation that engages, informs, inspires and empowers attendees with a toolbox of invaluable takeaways. His consultancy projects are built on delivering results for you. You set the agenda, and Kevin works with you and your team to address your specific challenges and reach your stated goals.
What Kevin Kelly Talks About:
STORYSELLING – how to engage in an attention deficit market?
The latest research shows that the average attention span of a goldfish is 9 seconds, a human being – 8 seconds. Engaging and building brand loyalty has become an extreme challenge. Drawing on over two decades of breaking sales records in client companies, Kevin highlights the secrets to developing a successful sales campaign.
The Future of Sales
In 2016 Kevin organised the first and critically acclaimed Speaker Summit in Ireland enjoying 1,650,000 impressions on Twitter. To his surprise none of this activity resulted in one enquiry about the event in its aftermath. This coupled with other research inspired Kevin to ponder the Future of Social Selling with one inevitable conclusion. Regardless of how clever your social media campaign is – at the end of the day people buy people and the majority of deals are closed P2P. As technologies converge these relationship may prove to be your unique competitive advantage.

Using his methodology of Xceptional Execution, Kevin highlights how to mirror the mindset, attitudes and success strategies of the outstanding Xceptionalists interviewed for his book “Do: the Pursuit of Xceptional Execution.” From these exclusive interviews and over two decades experience working with companies, Kevin distils the attributes of the modern manager/director/leader.
