He specialises in business, sales and marketing strategy; working with businesses to set clear and defined business goals, as well as mapping out simple pathways to success.

Kevin knows every business has a story to tell and he will help you tell yours. Whether your business is big or small, it has a uniqueness and magic that can captivate consumers. He is obsessed with what makes a consumer buy and how businesses can best position their products to appeal to customers and drive them to purchase. Kevin will help you find and develop the ‘secret sauce’ in your business.
