Kevin loves taking decades of research and making it instantly implementable for leaders. He has seen that giving leaders world-class content does not equal results if they can’t implement it (even if they loved the development programme!). The secret is to stop focusing on tips and tactics, and start giving people time-tested, comprehensive leadership systems. His development programmes are high energy and often involve creative elements including theatre and music.

With an academic background in adult education and development, Kevin is currently completing a PhD on how to design transformative training to multiply character- based leadership in India. During his 5 years with MDN Fusion, Kevin has worked with clients across industries, from IT to the UN, in countries as diverse as India and Indonesia. To relax, Kevin reads voraciously ( 100+ / year ) and learns new musical instruments. He plays 12+ instruments, the latest being the sitar and santoor, and used to perform with a jazz band at The Living Room in Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi.
