About Kevin Green
Kevin shares his own business experiences with a hands on approach. The media has often referred to Kevin as being "Exactly what it says on the tin" meaning he does practise what he preaches.There are no 'up sells' to futher trainings, the product that delegates choose is 90 day business coaching from Kevin and his team subject to Kevin's availability.
Kevin Green is a self-made multi-millionaire and social entrepreneur. He is one of the UK’s largest residential property landlords and a multi-business owner.
The 48-year-old dyslexic, who featured on Channel 4's Secret Millionaire, was homeless in 1984. Today his property portfolio runs into the hundreds.
He has a wealth of experience in the property investment world and heads a number of successful companies and other non property related businesses.
He is also involved in coaching under his own brand of Kevin Green Wealth Coach
Before making his fortune in business he was a successful dairy farmer. In 1999 he won a Nuffield Scholarship in agriculture and studied the attitudes and personalities of high achievers. He also interviewed the likes of Bill Gates and Sir Richard Branson. During the study he learned the simple principles for success and determined the common elements that contributed towards that success. He bought his first property soon after, using credit cards to bridge finance the deposit of a buy-to-let mortgage. After quickly renovating it and selling it at a profit, he bought a second. The rest is history.
Over the last decade Kevin continues to thrive in business and chooses to give back to the next generation of entrepreneurs by sharing his knowledge and wisdom. His speciality talks include motivation, empowerment and coaching. He enjoys giving businesses and organisations an insight into what it takes to become successful in the business world.
Kevin loves to educate, motivate and inspire others and his passion and enthusiasm is quite infectious. His down to earth approach is often referred to by those who know him as ‘exactly what it says on the tin’. he is one of the few educters in the U.K. who when searched actually has an extensive wealth of business experience, unlike some others in this industry who tend to make false claims to their wealth.
These qualities have catapulted him into worldwide demand as a speaker at conferences, dinners and business seminars.
Kevin has travelled throughout the UK, Asia, Australia and New Zealand in the past year and has spoken on the same stage as Sir Richard Branson.
Some of his clients include British Airways, Yorkshire Bank , Success Resources, Dymano Government projects, Prince's Trust, UK Government Techniums, New Zealand Wealth Mentor, Australia Ideas To Empires, Singapore/Malaysia Tigrent Learning, Rich Dad education, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Get Motivated and Triumphant Events.
Kevin is a regular commentator on property and business within a cross-section of UK and international media resources.
The dad-of-three has personally contributed more than £300,000 to Make-A-Wish Foundation UK. He is also a Welsh Goverment Dynamo role model coach and a member of The Professional Speaking Association.

Press release for Business Challenge


My PR man, Robert Lloyd, has just been asked to provide a press release for the Llanelli Star newspaper on the recent Coleg Sir Gar event at Parc y Scarlets.
Here it is . . .

South Wales millionaire and entrepreneur Kevin Green was the guest speaker at the Coleg Sir Gar Cluster Schools Leadership Challenge at Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli.
The Dragon's Den-style event saw children from all the feeder schools for Coleg Sir Gar take part in a competition for the best business idea.
Green, 48, gave an inspirational speech to the Year 9 pupils and then joined the judging panel for the event.
Eleanor Shaw, entrepreneur coordinator and performing arts lecturer at Coleg Sir Gar, said: “The leadership day was an opportunity for pupils from the Llanelli and surrounding area to meet and work with each other.
“The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and the wonderful speech from Mr Green.
“It was a busy day with lots of hard work put in by the pupils. They had to put their minds to thinking about a business idea and working on team and leadership skills.
“The challenge was – ‘Create a business idea that will benefit the youth of Llanelli by using an empty shop space in Llanelli town centre’.
“The children – all from feeder schools for Coleg Sir Gar – got the chance to meet current college students and staff, who helped mentor them throughout the day.
“The winners were actually a team of mixed pupils drawn from each school and they came up with the idea of a ‘Fitness Fanatic’ centre.
“It was great to see the youngsters working to develop a business idea for an empty shop in Llanelli town centre.
“The event is one of the highlights of the academic year for me and for our students.
“An event like this works wonders for developing teamwork and leadership skills. At last year’s event, 10 of the pupils went on to become either head boy or head girl at their respective schools.
Mr Green said after the event that was hugely impressed by the Coleg Sir Gar project.
He added: “It gave the pupils a wonderful opportunity to work on their business and entrepreneurial skills. The school pupils of today are the business leaders and entrepreneurs of tomorrow and it was great to see the youngsters tackling the challenge with such passion, commitment and enthusiasm.
“The judging was difficult as they all came up with innovative ideas. We had to pick one winner, but they were all winners!"

For more about the event, see my website -

Well done, Euros - what a champion!



Congratulations to my pal Euros Jones-Evans on winning his first ever cage fight at the weekend.
It was a great evening.
Pictured above - yours truly giving the thumbs-up, with Sean Holley, Matt Barry and Euros, just after his fight.
Television executive Euros was fighting in a Semi-Pro MMA (mixed martial arts) bout in Carmarthen as part of the Celtic Carnage Welsh Power and Strength weekend.
Euros is raising money for Cancer Research Wales and you can help sponsor him by visiting the JustGiving website on -
http://www.justgiving.com/Euros-Jones-Evans
Euros, commercial director with Welsh independent television producers Telesgop, happily labels himself a white-collar worker with no previous experience with MMA Mixed Martial Arts.
He had never set foot in a cage before Saturday night.
Euros did practice some martial arts in his teens.
The move to MMA started in January 2012, when he enrolled in the Chris Rees Academy.
Euros began learning Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian jiu-jitsu with the Gracie Barra Predator Team.
Chris Rees is the only instructor in Wales to hold a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, with more than 20 years of Martial Arts experience behind him.
He also holds Black belts in Traditional jiu-jitsu, Shotokan karate and Aikido.
Chris quickly saw potential in Euros and gave him a reason to train.
Euros took it as a personal challenge to take on the Semi-Professional bout in the MMA fight.




Euros said yesterday:" What a battle! Still sore today. Dan Williams gave me a good fight! My first win in MMA, thanks to all the guys and especially Chris Rees. Thank you for all your messages."

Good to catch up with old friends at reunion


It was good to catch up with old student colleagues from Gelli Aur in the Towy Valley.
See if you can spot me in the photo above!
I am grateful to fellow 'Class of 81-82' member Ian Howell for the following report on the event -


Former agricultural students of Gelli Aur College, the Class of 1981-82, gathered together for a 30-year reunion.
They were very pleased to be joined by Mr Gerald Curtis, one of the former lecturers.
The day kicked off with coffee at the Coleg Sir Gar campus at Gelli Aur.
There was an update on changes and improvements which have taken place at the college farm.
Aerial photographs were shown, comparing how the original farm layout had been replaced by modern structures.
A buffet lunch was enjoyed beneath glorious sunshine to the sound of much chattering before departing to Cwrtmalle farm, Llangynog, Carmarthen.
At Cwrtmalle, the former students saw the 2,000 cow super-dairy owned and managed by Mr Howell Richards, who was also a student at Gelli Aur during 1981-82.
Howell gave an interesting tour explaining how he was following an American model where the focus for the owner is on management principles rather than just getting hands dirty.
The dairy has a team of 22 staff, operating under the watchful eye of Howell’s wife Susan.
One of the former students, Ian Howell (now a partner with Rees Richards and Partners property consultants) said: "Whatever the individual’s view is of super-dairies the cows seemed very content with life!"
He added: "To finish off the day, the party attended a ‘fine dining’ experience at the Cawdor Hotel, Llandeilo, where Mr Kevin Green (star at Channel Four's Secret Millionaire and also part of the 1981 Class) gave a motivational talk on his life-changing move from dairying to property development.
"Mr Green is now the largest private sector residential landlord in the country.
"It was certainly interesting to see where the students' various career paths had taken them - including psychotherapy, behaviour therapy, photography, avionics technology, sales and trading, property development, management and construction, salvage and, last but not least, farming.
"Despite the wide range of careers followed, everyone agreed that their time at Gelli Aur had provided a solid foundation to their education.
"A significant part of this had been the experience of dormitory living in the Gelli Aur Mansion House.
"This house, which along with farming has suffered its ups and downs during recent years is hopefully now entering a positive future with the charitable trust which has acquired the property during recent months with a view to restoring it from its current sorry state to an art gallery and other uses for public benefit."
Pictured above: the former students at their reunion. Kevin Green is second from the left in the front row. Ian Howell is top left.

Busy start to Friday 13th

Business Boot Camp in North Wales sounds like fun

I've just agreed to be the guest speaker at a 'Business Boot Camp' in the heart of rural Conwy in North Wales.
It sounds like great fun.
The event is being organised by the Community Development Service of Conwy County Borough Council.
It is part of a rural business support project and includes a full day of workshops for North Wales SMEs.
It's happening on November 9.

'Pure Art' event in Birmingham was a thrill


It was great to be asked to speak at the Pure Art event in the centre of Birmingham at the weekend.
The event brought together the world of art and business as it doubled up as an art show and networking event.
The event was organised by Ocean Services and Trade Ltd, the leading agency which specialises in showroom exhibition, import-export, international education and event organisation.
The company has the aim of bringing the best of east and west together in one forum.
One of the most unusual features of the exhibition was the story of The Queen's 60-year reign in sand animation
The displays featured work by the talented Vietnamese artist Tri Duc.
Visitors to the show also had the chance to try making sand paintings during the event.
For more information, see the website -
http://www.ost-uk.com/pure-art-2012.html
and
http://www.ost-uk.com/index.html
It was nice to receive a couple of thank-you notes after the event.
Luna Phuong, Marketing and Communications Manager, Ocean Services and Trade Ltd, wrote -
On behalf of Ocean Services and Trade Ltd, we would like to express our sincere thank for your attendance and your inspirational speech about your journey to success to our audiences.
This has impressed our participants a lot and this is just one of several testimonials we received, Mr. Geoff French, Academic Director at Birmingham Metropolitan College, wrote -
'Just a quick word of thanks for the excellent Sand Art event on Saturday it was extremely entertaining and I hope you raised a significant amount at auction for the impressive Sand Painting of the Queen. I was also very impressed with speaker Entrepreneur Kevin Green who gave an inspirational speech on his approach to life, charity work and business. I think our students at Birmingham Metropolitan College would find his views and style of presentation something they could be relate to a want to emulate'.
Steve Pacquette of Ocean Services and Trade Ltd wrote -
I normally fall asleep when someone gets up on stage to do a presentation. Saturday afternoon, sitting in the front row at Birmingham, when you came on stage I thought here we go again.
As you spoke my ears pricked up, your goal and aspirations sounded very familiar.
Aston Martin DB9, financial abundance, what is it that make people tick, charitable causes for children, to mention a few I came back home to London thinking we are both about are about the same age with similar goals. What do I need to do to reach similar heights?
I believe those words Richard Brandson passed on to you are key.
Today, is the first day of the rest of my life with a completely different perception. Thank you, Kevin.

Nice comments about the app

I've been getting some nice comments about my new 'wealth app' for mobile phones.
For example, @cymro4 Colin, of Llanelli, tweeted -
"I've downloaded your Wealth App Kevin. One word, brilliant. And to everyone that hasn't had the app, get it!”
The app is available from -http://www.kevingreen.co.uk/kgw-iphone-app/
