Kevin Hard

Business Development Director

Kevin joined the team in 2014 bringing with him a wealth of experience in Leadership and Employee Engagement strategies.

Previously he worked in the oilfield in the Middle East and West Africa for 8 years before returning to the UK in 1987 where he set up a successful consultancy business. Clients included the IMF, Warner Brothers and GKN Worldwide. He sold the company to a major UK client in 2000 and moved on to focus on leadership coaching and mentoring.

Kevin is a fellow of Leadership Academy which challenges leaders’ thinking on engagement and through the National Centre for Strategic Leadership is closely involved in research into neuroscience and the four enablers of engagement i.e. creating a work environment that helps our brains think and perform at their best.

Kevin set up and facilitated a User Group for the NHS in the UK where trusts from both England and Scotland shared ideas and resources around transformational leadership, and other innovative leadership ideas.

Kevin worked closely with a leading strategic risk organisation in China from 2012 – 2014 where he delivered behavioural safety programmes in Henan province which changed work practices there for the first time.

Kevin has recently published an Organisational Integrated Improvement model based on Leadership, Engagement and Wellbeing (with Nigel Girling) which has been referenced by many organisations including the HSL/HSE at conference.

“Kevin is a great to man to have in your corner. Enthusiastic, open to new ideas, a great communicator and able to interact effectively from the board room to the tea room. He shares ideas naturally and can make complex things seem simple. He generates commitment and encourages engagement and is a source of energy and power in any endeavour. Whenever I’ve worked with Kevin, I always feel rejuvenated. More power to his elbow, I say!”
