"Having attended development courses before- yours is an excellent departure, straight from the heart and appealing on all levels.
The message which has most instilled itself within me is the following
When a goal is believed without any doubt- Circumstances, events and teachers will appear to help it come about. Your deliverance of this with personal anecdotes and your genuine belief left us in no doubt of this fact. For that message alone it was worth attending, not to mention the remaining content.
The energy of yesterday has left me in no doubt that we will hear more of you, a lot more of you."
Patrick McKeown, MD, Asthma Care Ireland
"I was talking to a friend of mine who is a life coach in the UK and he was asking how I first got involved in self development (I met him through the Anthony Robbins courses). I realised that it was through reading your book ‘How When you don’t know How’. It open my mind to a new world and transformed my business success and more importantly my ambitions.
I have given copies of your book to a number of friends in the hope that they will get as much out of it as I did."
Declan Cosgrove, MD Bite It Ltd
"Positive thinking and self-empowerment are new buzz-words in the nineties. The difference with Kevin's seminar is that he links them to achieving core human values such as happiness and peace of mind instead of the "False God" of monetary success which other teachers seem to want people to aspire to."
Matt Lawless M.D., Galway City Forms
