Most recently I have been engaged with Kevin on the whole area of Organizational Agility and ‘Future of Work ‘, a field in which he is a thought leader with highly valuable and practical insights. Kevin always brings a commercial, original and practical approach to some of the most critical and complex questions being faced by many organizations today. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to any business leaders who are looking to access a unique combination of genuine thought leadership, coupled with a considered but practical approach, to addressing the complex organizational challenges in today’s business environment.
