Kevin Kelly

Kevin is a critically acclaimed keynote speaker and best selling author of five books. For the past 25 years he has spoken around the globe addressing audiences from 15 Directors of a Multinational in New York to 5000 delegates for the Million Dollar Round Table in Korea. Regardless of the audience size or location, Kevin’s Keynote Addresses have consistently scored over 90% in Speaker Satisfaction Ratings. In addition to speaking, Kevin consults with some of the top brands worldwide, most recently creating a unique video series for the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Community.
A best-selling author and highly successful sales and marketing professional, he has built a world brand on a shoe-string and succeeded when conventional wisdom believed he was doomed to fail. Honouring his Irish roots, Kevin is a master storyteller who has worked around the world with many Fortune 500 companies and prestigious associations eg The Million Dollar Round Table, Microsoft, Globant, HSBC, KPMG, Scania, intel, Pfizer and Lane Crawford.
His consistent high rankings are a result of his unique interactive cocktail of cutting edge research, exercises and stories.
Kevin has written five books and recorded three CD’s. Discovering that 88% of company breakthroughs were the result of exceptional execution of an ordinary idea, he single-mindedly explored this remarkably simple idea. This culminated in the development of the unique XE methodology – Xceptional Execution. His critically acclaimed new book “DO! the pursuit of xceptional execution”​ draws upon this extensive research to highlight what makes xceptional businesses and their leaders [the “Xceptionalists”​] succeed beyond all odds. His interviewees are CEO’s of the most compelling brands drawn from every corner of the globe and every industry with revenues ranging from US $100K to $150M.
Tom Peters described the book as the one “he always wanted to write.”
