Inspire your leaders
I have been leading companies for 25 years – my earliest challenges were to rebuild a broken Porsche brand and then to inspire the team at BMW GB to achieve a 500% improvement in profit while transforming the service levels of an industry. Since then I have founded start-ups, driven turnarounds and built companies in numerous sectors. Our teams have won awards and been recognised as some of the best in the world. They have also created over GBP 3 billion in shareholder value.
A speech needs to do much more than simply engage the audience - it needs to energise the audience to take action. Information is interesting; Inspiration gets results.
If you want to give your audience a shot of pure inspiration, combined with a wholly practical approach, let’s talk.

“Inspirational is an understatement. Two weeks after Kevin addressed the delegates I was still getting rave reviews. Kevin stirred an audience of business leaders by his ability to articulate his experience and relate it back to his interpretation of business strategy. His unique and professional yet seemingly unintended style is most refreshing. I asked him to spend time with my team and to demonstrate how to achieve practical success.”Robyn Christie, CEO, ASATA
“The audience were completely in awe of your presentation! Your delivery is quite unique in that you relate so comfortably with the audience and you have ‘truly lived’ every moment of each experience. I have heard many speakers who have presented about their experiences but have lacked your ability to articulate from your heart”.James Roberts, Managing Director, Accenture
“Thank you for the inspirational speech you delivered to open our Google Think event last week. Your on-stage presence and natural charisma shone through. This coupled with the strength of your content and the clarity of your messages raised the quality of our event from the outset. You injected gravitas, humour and credibility. You played a key role in opening the minds of the audience and getting them to ‘Think’! The overall success of the day was in no small part thanks to you. I hope that you would consider speaking again on our behalf at a future opportunity.”Richard Trinder, Director, Google UK
“Kevin’s dynamism and passion infected the whole audience with energy and enthusiasm. His presentation was totally authentic allowing our selected high potential team to really see and feel what it means to be a visionary, inspiring leader. He met the brief exactly and included all of the key aspects we discussed with him in advance. He illustrated his speech with many practical examples of inclusive leadership and team building in action and used perceptive and inspiring stories, and humour, to make it easy for our multinational team to understand the messages he wanted to pass.”Kathrin Dahm, EADS Engagement Programme Manager
“Kevin Gaskell is quite simply one of the best speakers we have had the privilege of hearing from in the past few years. An exceptionally articulate and informative orator who left the audience wanting more. His commanding intellect, vast knowledge and engaging style make Kevin a compelling choice as either a motivational or business speaker. Kevin was exceptionally professional and a pleasure to work with. We WILL be inviting him back soon.”Victoria Rought, CEO Entrepreneurs’ Forum.
“Hey Kevin, just wanted you to know that I LOVED your book ‘Inspired Leadership’. It’s had a huge impact on my thinking around business building. I’m a musician from Leeds (spotted that you are a guitar player) and have grown one of the largest online music schools in the world over the past few years (currently 25,000 enrolled students with revenue in excess of $10 million this year) and am now looking to take that to $100 million in the next 5-7 years. I’ll certainly be using the principles outlined in your book!”
“This was, in short, a brilliant speech. The content was superb, the delivery was superb, and overall the guy was superb. I really enjoyed the presentation and made a great deal of notes which I have since read over and will use in my business. I brought a visitor to the event and he was equally impressed.”Entrepreneurs’ Forum attendee
“Everyone I’ve spoken to from the event is still buzzing a week later. Kevin was awesome, an inspiration and quite simply one of the best speakers we have ever had the privilege of listening to. Kevin’s use of practical lessons to identify how success can be achieved even in adversity was particularly useful and he maintained the perfect balance between humour and serious content – Fantastic!”Carole Beverley, CEO, The Entrepreneur’s Forum.
“I wanted you to know what a truly electrifying effect you had on so many of my managers… your comments and practical examples of leadership were massively thought provoking, energising and inspirational. I have never seen such a genuinely practical bridge so clearly demonstrated and which my team are now following to a hugely positive effect… thank you so much.”David Newman, Chairman, Ridgeway Group
“I thought Kevin was quite simply inspirational. I loved the fact that he was still down to earth despite his obvious success. I thought the message he gave could be adopted and implemented into any business and even though I am not an entrepreneur, I will certainly take on board some of his wise advice. Excellent!”Entrepreneurs’ Forum attendee
“You took time to understand our business’s challenges and tailored your messages for our international team. Your mix of personal and professional achievements helped explain some simple and practical tools which our team will now apply. Unquestionably, your presentation was the highlight of our event and ensured it was a huge success overall. Everyone is still talking about it and buzzing with enthusiasm. You really exceeded our expectations.”Pamela Newman, Head of Change Delivery, ACCA
