Kevin is a Change and OD Consultant with extensive experience from his work supporting senior leaders in navigating their way through complex and elusive business challenges. His client portfolio spans a variety of international and business sectors and includes DHL, the NHS, UK Government, Plan International, BP Castrol, Science Museum, Reuters and BT Global Services. His rigorous and imaginative approach helps clients to appreciate the wider context and assumptions that frame the issues at hand. This enables them to reflect on the possibilities, limitations and unintended consequences of their proposed strategies for change. So purpose and congruence are attended to as much as process and behaviour.
Since 2011, Kevin has played a figural role in shaping and leading two pioneering qualification programmes including the Ashridge Masters in Organisational Change. These have been transforming the practice of change leaders and consultants for almost 20 years.
Prior to his consulting career, most of his employed life was spent in the international consumer goods and retail sectors. A particular highlight was being part of the core design team that guided the global merger of the Diageo drinks business.
Kevin has always been a passionate advocate for the creative sector – he has been adviser, coach and mentor to a diversity of arts organisations and artists. His doctoral thesis was the result of an extensive research project into the art and practice of curating in a wide range of contemporary contexts. Now based in North London, his learning edge comes from being a fully committed and slightly perplexed dad to 2 young boys.
“At Metalogue we start by getting alongside where the client is rather than where we would like them to be. We do have principles though, and we do not shy away from the ethical and ecological consequences of what it means to show leadership in such an unpredictable and interconnected world.”
