Business leader Kevin Gaskell inspires at sold-out event

Fourth edition of Network Royals another hit

24 July 2019

Another Network Royals networking event; another sell-out. Over 70 businesses descended on Madejski Stadium for an afternoon of meeting and greeting, as well as an inspiring keynote presentation from Kevin Gaskell.

Kevin gave a fascinating talk linking to his three stages to success: commit, connect, create. He discussed his illustrious career, which includes roles as Managing Director at BMW, Porsche and Lamborghini, and spoke about the dangers of self-imposed limitations.

He also went on to discuss markedly improved customer satisfaction at Porsche under his watch, how to engage and inspire teams and people, and stepping back and learning when things don’t go right in order to analyse and rebuild.

Kevin also shared details of ‘The Ocean5’ project, which he and a team of four others will row the Atlantic Ocean to raise awareness and over £250,000 for plastic pollution in the oceans.

On the day, new Network Royals Business Club members were introduced, including Risk Warden, Constantine Law, Foresolutions, Castle Water and Marlena O’Donnell, while Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation, gave details about the Great South Run and other upcoming fundraising events. Members were also reminded that they get two complimentary tickets to an upcoming Royals fixture at Madejski Stadium.
