Our company was moving through a period of change in management and leadership and we wanted to host our international sales team in Ireland to inform them of changes and energize them for their markets.
When I initially spoke to Kevin Reid it was to seek out his skills as an after dinner speaker, however once in conversation, this quickly morphed into a much wider discussion on how he could assist my international sales team to get individually organised and work towards reaching their targets.
From the outset Kevin was able to quickly get on board with our organizing team and assist, not only in terms of content, but also with his experience of teambuilding, he lead us through what was practicable and what was not.
Once our international sales team had arrived in Ireland we decamped to Athy for a five day residential sales conference. Kevin engaged with our sales team from the start and quickly established his leadership as facilitator.
He was able to deliver the sales training programme and to engage with all members throughout the hierarchy of the team, easily adapting his style to meet the needs of each individual. He had no hesitation in getting stuck in to all the teambuilding activities and was on more than one occasion able to spot a team member in trouble and go to their assistance.
During the week Kevin was of great assistance to me in assigning additional roles and responsibilities for individual members of the team as his honesty, insight and accurate feedback proved invaluable. He also assisted me through coaching in defining and explaining my own future plans for the direction of Malvern House Plc. As a group we were able to benefit from his wealth of direct international experience.
Kevin’s coaching and facilitation style contributed greatly to the success of our week. I found Kevin to be flexible, willing, professional, honest, and trustworthy, throughout the entire process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kevin Reid for group and individual coaching and team building facilitation.
