Communication is everything

Kevin visited the Netherlands to work with the leadership team of Liberty Global Inc at their annual leadership meeting in the Netherlands.

LGI are one of the world’s largest cable companies with 21,000 employees providing essential communication to over 20 million customers. The brief was to motivate a very bright team of people working in a fast changing technology environment to understand that the opportunity to out think and out manoeuvre the competition exists but needs to be implemented. Kevin was invited to share some of the tools and techniques which he has developed to assist in rapid response to a transient environment.  A number of the managers have followed up with Kevin after the event and Kevin has provided individual coaching to support their management processes.

Seeking the truth – identifying the traces of success

Kevin was invited to address over 400 members of the leadership and management team of LGC, one of the world’s foremost scientific services companies.

LGC is looking for opportunities to grow on its historical success and to understand what it takes to transform a business from good to great. The management team entered into enthusiastic discussion of a number of the points raised by Kevin who was delighted to be able to contribute to new thinking and the identification of the processes and approaches which will allow the company to achieve even greater success.

David Richardson, Chief Executive of LGI commented, “The reaction from our leaders has been exceptional – many have commented that Kevin set just the right tone and launched a very successful day. We particularly appreciated the way in which he tailored his comments towards our issues, and also the very practical management tools he suggested. Some of these are already being put into use by our people”.
