Kevin Allen's Biography

Kevin Allen Speaker Profile:

Kevin Allen is an American bestselling author, business growth consultant and speaker. An expert in business development, masterful pitchman, Allen is recognized as one of the advertising industry’s most accomplished growth professionals. Allen is the author of “The Hidden Agenda: A Proven Way to Win Business and Create a Following” (2012), a Wall Street Journal bestseller and the e-book, “The Buoyant Leader: A Leadership Course for the Rising Star.”

In 2010, Allen created a growth consulting firm KevinAllenPartners Company. In June 2012 KevinAllenPartners Company rebranded under the name rekap Inc. specialising in growth readiness, leadership and business training. The company has offices in London, England and New York City, New York and counts Burberry, Rolls-Royce Aerospace, The Doyle Collection, Nokia, Omnicom, Rolls-Royce, Smythson, M&C Saatchi, and Swedbank among its global clients.  In 2013, he launched EI Games LLC, which specializes in award-winning emotional intelligence leadership and sales training games.

From MasterCard’s iconic “Priceless” campaign to Rudy Giuliani’s mayoral campaign, Allen has seen first-hand how to effectively find, connect, and speak to “The Hidden Agenda” to obtain new business and win every time, using the highly effective Allen Key model. The Allen Key identifies the three potential hidden agendas – wants, needs, or values of your prospect – and connects one of your three leverageable assets – real ambition, credo, or your core – to win new business.

During Allen’s highly successful 25-year career he pitched and won in some of the toughest pitching environments and was credited with three industry turnarounds, including McCann Erikson, IPG, and Lowe where he brought over $1 billion in revenues and helped his companies become number one in new business performance.  He has contributed to the Harvard Business Review blog and is also a visiting lecturer at the European Business School of Regents College London and Columbia University Graduate School of Business.
