  • The empowerment of individuals that enables them to improve their life and contribute to their local community with an international dimension.

By nature Kevin is a challenger and informer and has over 16 years worked with, and spoken to, thousands of people who want to work in Development.

Kevin's first career was as a Designer and managing garment production in the UK and overseas. He worked for major suppliers to the High Street brands, then he lived and worked in southern India (Bangalore) for a few years supervising design, production and quality for the 3rd largest exporter to international markets. The job was transferred to a local counterpart.

Upon returning to the UK and resuming work in London, Kevin volunteered and discovered the "voluntary sector" and ultimately found International Development. He has worked for 15 years at the information and advice agency, World Service Enquiry.

Currently, Kevin is a Trustee and Company Secretary of CANS Trust, a legal information charity, Director of World Service Enquiry and the successful coaching business kcoach.net. He brings a wealth of experience of working with clients based in the UK and overseas.

He is a regular speaker at events such as forum3 and VSO returned volunteers days, where he provide ideas and strategies for development workers to move forward. He is regularly invited to speak at many UK Universities and student events, such as the Careers Group University of London's "Getting into International Development", the student network U8, Positive Change and alternative career fairs. Kevin has also contributed to Open University The Volunteering and Work Experience forum and the Guardian Online International Development forum.

With a MA, ECONNF Coach Diploma and an NLP Diploma, he also offers a wealth of experience of practical coaching and mentoring, working one to one with people just like you. Talk to me in a career consultation.
