Kevin Gaskell is an extraordinary leader who took iconic brands Porsche, BMW and Lamborghini to unprecedented levels of success. A corporate trailblazer, serial entrepreneur and world-class team builder, Kevin has enjoyed success in sectors including automotive, data, technology, manufacturing, brand marketing and professional services, repeatedly leading teams to achieve extraordinary performance in companies ranging from 7 to 7,000 employees.
Inspiring the turnaround of Porsche from close to bankruptcy to market leader saw Kevin Gaskell, at the age of 32, recognised as one of the most capable leaders of his generation. He consolidated that recognition with 4 years as Managing Director of BMW (GB) during which he led the business to record growth and a 500% improvement in profitability. Since his roles in the automotive sector, Kevin has led businesses to massive success in the digital, technology, data, brand marketing, market research, construction, retail, professional services and manufacturing sectors. Such flexibility and adaptability confirm his position as an extraordinary and inspirational leader.
A highly motivational and engaging speaker, Kevin believes that ordinary people can achieve extraordinary results – and he has the experiences to prove it. He has led global corporations, start-ups, private equity portfolio companies and organisations large and small to create shareholder value in excess of $3Billion. He has also found the time to walk to both the north and south poles and climb the world’s highest mountains to fund the construction of a cancer treatment unit.
Using an energetic and inclusive style he shares the tools and techniques that have enabled his teams to deliver results that even they considered impossible – until they achieved them. Kevin’s approach to ‘Inspired Leadership’ at every level in the organisation has been demonstrated to achieve extraordinary success, again and again, showing that leadership is an adaptable and transferable skill and is a key enabler of successful teamwork in any situation. Drawing upon experience and his ongoing leadership roles in growing companies, Kevin shares practical lessons of how individuals in businesses from 7 to 7,000 employees can be inspired to create teamwork which transforms organisations and achieves world-class performance.
In January 2020 Kevin was a member of the 5 man team who set a new world record for the fastest ever crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in an open rowing boat.
Kevin is a leader who has been there and done it, and then done it again, and again. His speeches provide the inspiration and share the tools which enable each member of the audience to return to their role energised, informed and ready to achieve something extraordinary.
Rated out of 100, Kevin scored at 96 by over 300 delegates which is higher than I have ever seen. There is so much we learned from his experience. Our most sincere and personal gratitude for the work he put into our presentation. Superb, motivating and relevant.
