Kevin Gaskell's Biography

Leading 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. He is a corporate trailblazer who has changed the way that businesses operate.

Since leaving the automotive sector he 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 has confirmed his position as an extraordinary and inspirational leader.

A highly motivational and engaging speaker, he 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 $5Billion. He has also found the time to play international sport and 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 which have enabled his teams to deliver results which even they considered impossible – until they achieved them. His approach of ‘Inspired Leadership’ at every level in the organisation has been demonstrated to achieve extraordinary success again and again.

Kevin Gaskell demonstrates that leadership is an adaptable and transferable skill and is a key enabler of successful teamwork in any situation. Drawing upon his deep experience and his current leadership roles in a number of growing companies Kevin provides audiences with practical lessons of how people can be inspired to achieve extraordinary results. He offers the audience practical tools that they can take and immediately apply to their own business.
