After leaving Rutlish School in Merton Park (also attended by John Major, ex-British PM) in 1980, Kevin spent the first years of his career “running on the hamster wheel” in retail banking with Nat West performing back office duties making it to Head Cashier until 1993.
Wanting a change, Kevin qualified onto the National Register of Hypnotherapists and Psychotherapists helping clients with confidence issues, phobias such as the fear of flying, stuttering and broken family relationships. Kevin incorporated selling health products into the therapy and moved to Spain where there was a gap in the market.
Whilst in Spain, Kevin landed a leading role in a new TV drama filmed on the same, vacant set from the BBC’s ill-fated soap ‘Eldorado’. Kevin’s acting abilities, close working relationships and time as a therapist gave rise to winning a number of sales roles back in London from 1995 in Internet, Radio and the City. After a role as a senior member within a Mayfair Marketing Agency setting up face to face meetings at Director level, Kevin began his own Appointment Setting/Telemarketing company, marketBreach Ltd, in 2002. Momentum grew, many clients were gained and healthy business relationships were forged.
In 2008, Kevin tweaked the model, incorporated new training and re-branded into what now is The Appointments Office with its training wing, The Appointments Academy. Along the way, Kevin has been invited to speak on aspects of Appointment Setting, Cold Calling and Telephone Tips by Business Link at the Business Start-Up show at London’s Excel Centre and today, Kevin is focused on the mix between training provision and running campaigns for clients from all sectors and has a book launch coming soon with other exciting developments in the pipeline.
