Phew! Busy time public speaking

It's been a busy time for public speaking engagements.
Events in London and Birmingham and elsewhere - and a few very 'local' events.
I was delighted to speak at Burry Port Probus Club at the Ashburnham Hotel in Pembrey.
It was a similar treat to speak - and be guest of honour - at Llanelli Rotary Club's annual President's Dinner staged at the Stradey Park Hotel, Llanelli.
I am pictured with Llanelli Rotary Club President Alan Owen.

Another busy day today . . .

It's another busy day today.
Have managed to juggle a few things on the work diary to fit in Carmarthen Journal reporter Rebecca Jones.
She is interviewing me for the Journal's Real Lives feature.
It should be in print next week.

My delight at sharing a stage with Bill Clinton

I was delighted to be sharing the stage with former US President Bill Clinton at a major UK business conference.
The Entrepreneurs 2012 four-day intensive business conference attracted an audience of more than 10,000 to London's ExCel arena, with 3,000 packed into the hall for Clinton’s keynote address.
Obviously, it was one of the biggest events I’ve done in my role as a motivational and business speaker.
The running order went from Bill Clinton, former US President, straight to 'Kevin Green, millionaire and entrepreneur'.
Not bad, I thought . . . having Bill Clinton as your warm-up man! (just joking, Mr President!)
As you would expect Clinton’s speech was very inspirational.
The guy arrived with a massive security entourage and there is a real aura about him as a speaker.
Without a doubt, he is the biggest draw in the world at the moment in terms of public speaking.
I'm very proud of the fact that I was invited to speak at the event.
As you would expect, it was a very exciting day for me, but not without its hiccups.
Clinton brought some very sophisticated audio-visual equipment along for the show and when his kit was disconnected, the music and AV material for my presentation wouldn’t load on the computer equipment.
It was a case, of, gulp, what now?
It was a bit scary at the time, but I carried one doing my thing and the audience reacted well - and we managed to fit in my famous Wealth Dance.
All in all, it was a great experience and I managed to do my bit to help the former President’s charity, the Clinton Foundation.
With more than 3,000 people in the audience, I asked everyone to put £10 in the pot, so we raised a few thousands for the Clinton Foundation.
Later, there was a charity dinner, at which Clinton was the guest of honour.
The evening saw a charity auction in aid of the Prince’s Trust.
I dipped my hand into my own pocket and had a successful auction bid for £5,000 for tickets for the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix, tickets provided by Team Lotus.
The generous Lotus guys then cash-matched that donation for £5,000, making a total gain of £10,000 for the Prince’s Trust.

Wow! Sharing the stage with Bill Clinton!

There's something of the 'Wow' factor about this speaking engagement I've been given on Friday.
I will be sharing the stage with Bill Clinton at a major UK business conference.
Entrepreneurs 2012 is a four-day intensive business conference set to attract an audience of more than 10,000 at London's ExCel arena.
It's a massive event.
Bill Clinton has top billing as the main speaker in a star-studded line-up which also includes Ruby Wax, Bear Grylls, Kevin Spacey, Levi Roots, Carol Vorderman, Bruce Dickinson and Benedict Cumberbatch.
I'm very proud of the fact that I've been invited to speak on Friday, the big day when former United States President Bill Clinton will be speaking.
Without a doubt, he is the biggest draw in the world at the moment in terms of public speaking.
It promises to be a great occasion and I'm looking forward to sharing the platform with Bill Clinton.

Today, I am at a Business Boot Camp!

Today, I am the guest speaker at a 'Business Boot Camp' in the heart of rural Conwy in North Wales.
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.
The North Wales and Liverpool-based Daily Post ran a nice story about the Boot Camp.
See -

Here is some of what business reporter Martin Williams had to say -

A SECRET millionaire will put budding entrepreneurs through a business boot camp.
Kevin Green – a star of the Channel 4 hit series – has been lined up by Conwy Rural Business Support as the keynote speaker for their event in Glasdir at Llanrwst on November 9.
With 429 properties in his portfolio, making him one of the UK’s largest residential property landlords, the former South Wales dairy farmer also runs Kevin Green Wealth which educates, motivates and inspires with real advice by someone who actually practices what he preaches.
The 48-year-old is looking forward to sharing the secrets of his glittering career.
He told Business Post: “Generally it is the person who creates a successful business. I cover things like successful business systems, but also the type of person you need to be, what is an entrepreneur.”
The event is being organised by the team at Conwy Rural Business Support, headed by Project Officer Anna Openshaw, working with Elen Rowlands, the manager of Glasdir.
Ms Openshaw said: “In addition to Kevin's keynote address, there will be a variety of workshops which aim to assist with different aspects of businesses.
“The day will be full of activity but there will be plenty of time to network during breaks, lunch time and between workshops.”
Kevin seemed certain to follow in father Alan’s footsteps at their Burry Port dairy farm, but after they locked horns in 1984 about how the farm was run, Kevin left home.
“I ran away from home in 1984 and became homeless. It was my decision and it was self-inflicted,” he said.
Two years later and stunned by the death of his sister Julie from lupus disease at 19, Kevin returned and was reconciled with his father.
In 1999 he was awarded a Nuffield scholarship to travel the world talking to business giants like Bill Gates and Sir Richard Branson, analysing their personalities and attitudes and what made them so successful.
“The purpose was to see how the corporate world had any particular relevance to farming,” he said.
When he completed his study in 2000 and began travelling Wales lecturing about what he had found, he had that “if they can do it, I can do it” moment.
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.
He now has “clusters” of properties in South Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Kevin also cleared any debts on his dad’s farm, which now makes the family more money rented out than it did when they were milking.
Even though times are hard and banks are not lending to small business like they used to, Kevin, a father of three teenagers, believes “more millionaires are made in the recession than any other time” and added: “If you buy right you weather the storm.
“Research well and get trained, by experts in the market place, people who have done it, not just write about it. With me business comes first – I haven’t even written a book.
“I’m more excited by this market than before because it’s taught people to be cautious. Money is available if you know how to access it.”

Criss-crossing the country

Criss-crossing the country at the moment.
Last night, I spoke at a meeting of property investors in Nottingham before heading over to Llandudno in North Wales.

Lending a hand with the donkeys

All my friends know that I have a soft spot for the donkeys on my farm.
So I was glad to lend a hand when they needed a spot of foot trimming at the weekend.
My thanks go to Bob for his help.
The end result?
Twelve happy donkeys!

On a Guardian panel tomorrow

Busy day again tomorrow as I am one of the members of a panel at a Guardian & Lloyds TSB Breakfast Seminar being held at the Cardiff Marriott Hotel.
The Institute of Directors is running a series of breakfast seminars across the country for business leaders, in association with the Guardian Small Business Network and Lloyds TSB Commercial.
The seminars bring together a panel of well known business specialists to discuss the key issues of the day.
Run in the style of Question Time, attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions to the panel and contribute to the debate.
For more information and details on dates and venues please visit the Guardian Small Business Network
The Cardiff seminar will be co-chaired by a Guardian business journalist and the IoD Wales Director, Robert Lloyd Griffiths.
The panel is made up of well-known sector specialists and a business professional from Lloyds TSB Commercial.
The seminar topic is‘Accessing New Markets.’
The seminar will discuss the following ideas -
  • New markets equal new opportunities for business: whether it’s expanding beyond your local region, opening up a new customer base for your products or taking your business global.
  • What are the tools and support available and how can you form partnerships to achieve success?
  • With the government’s commitment to opening procurement routes for SME’s how can businesses be best placed to win these opportunities?
  • Is meeting sustainability standards the key to unlocking public sector contracts?

Entrepreneurship Academy students on TV tonight

Students from the Entrepreneurship Academy Wales should be in the TV spotlight tonight.
ITVWales were at a special event held at the Innovation Foundry at the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea, last night.
They were there to film the 'speed-dating' evening which helped match up mentors and students.
The mentors, including myself, will be helping to guide the students through their course and develop their business ideas and strategies.
Before the 'speed-dating', however, I had a surprise for the students.
Academy Director Sue Poole had put together funds for a special challenge for the students.
The students were split into two teams - one boys and one girls.
They have each been given £250 each and two 'free' pitches/stalls at Swansea Indoor Market for December 4 and 5.
The teams have to come up with a sales idea for their market stall.
There's a loading bay for them to deliver their goods - but no electricity on the stall.
The team whch makes the most profit on the original fund of £250 will be the winner.
The winning students will get to keep the profits.
Indus Films and Television will be filming at the market during the week and should be able to put the spotlight on the young entrepreneurs at work.
When I announced the challenge to the students last night, they were thrilled.
Very quickly, they started to form some ideas about what they will sell at the market stall.
It promises to be a good test of the youngsters and their business skills and I am looking forward to seeing the contest unfold.

TV filming, then speed-dating!

What a combination this afternoon!
Doing a spot of filming for ITVWales today as they put the spotlight on the Entrepreneurship Academy Wales at The Foundry at the Dylan Thomas Centre in Swansea.
Then, it's a spot of 'speed-dating'.
Well, it's not quite what you think . . .
The 'speed-dating' will help to match students of the Entrepreneurship Academy Wales with successful business mentors.
It promises to be an exciting afternoon for one and all.
Here's hoping we can get some of the Entrepreneurship Academy Wales students off to a flying start.

Back home after New Zealand trip

Wow! I'm safely back home after a successful public-speaking tour of New Zealand.
It was quite a roller-coaster of a fortnight, taking in 11 speaking engagements.
The trip took me to Aukland, then Tauranga (the most populous city in the Bay of Plenty region of the North Island of New Zealand), then Wellington, back to Hamilton and then back to Auckland.
On occasions we were cross-crossing the country, but it was wonderful to take in the scenery and meet the people.
The timetable was pretty tight on occasions. For example, my flight in to Auckland was diverted through Bahrain and ran late. I had to be picked up from the airport by a guy who had obviously done some Formula 1 training and literally had to change into my suit in the hotel toilet before going on stage for my first speaking engagement.
My role was similar to my work as a wealth mentor/coach for Kevin Green Wealth (, helping people form their ideas about business and putting them on the right path to making money.
I was working hand-in-hand with David Leon, a Spanish guy I actually trained through my wealth programme a few years ago.
David was originally a member of my UK team, but he met a Kiwi lady and relocated to New Zealand and now runs a wealth education programme which operates along the same lines as Kevin Green Wealth.
The speaking events were a great success and there was a real vibe and buzz in the room at every event. Plenty of great ideas and plenty of entrepreneurial spirit and the passion that drives success in business.
I will be returning to New Zealand in January as friends of mine will be getting married in the new year.
Never one to miss an opportunity, David will be putting on another big event in Auckland on January 26, so I'll be spreading my words of wisdom to the New Zealand business community once again.
This latest trip was the ninth time for me to visit New Zealand. My first visit was back in 1999 when I was on a Nuffield Scholarship which saw me intervewing businesspeople and entrepreneurs to gather the secrets of their successes.
New Zealand seems like a country on the up. Property prices are gaining a lot. There's also a lot of Chinese money coming in. In Auckland, for example, you will also see a lot of smaller busineses run by Chinese and Asians.
New Zealand's economy is a bit behind the UK, while the impression is that neighbour Australia is starting to feel the squeeze.
A lot of people in New Zealand are very keen to get into property.
The psyche of the Kiwi seems very similar to the Welsh in that they want to own land and property.
Everyone attending the speaking events seemed very receptive to what I had to say.
It was a bit of a whirlwind tour of New Zealand, but hugely enjoyable and rewarding.
I did manage a bit of 'me time' while I was there, just towards the end of the tour.
I was able to take in the world triathlon event and visited some memorable places, including Waiheke Island, which is just off Aukland in a rain shadow area.
There are some 40 vineyards on island and it's all very swish.
I enjoyed my time at the Mudbrick vineyard, which is on the brow of a hill with views back to Aukland and the sky tower.
Just remembering it, brings a smile to my face.
All in all, a great trip - and I'll be seeing New Zealand again very soon.

On the road in New Zealand

Long drive to central North Island in New Zealand for the next leg of my tour.
This is a really beautiful country.
I have another speaking engagement this evening.
The feedback has been great so far.
The audiences have been very enthusiastic and I've met some very committed businesspeople.
Luckily for me, this trip will not be all public speaking.
I have four days at the end of the speaking tour to enjoy this fab country.
Highlights so far include a visit to Tauranga in the Bay of Plenty.

Next stop: Wellington!

It's been a great day. I've been speaking in Auckland at two events.
I'm off early tomorrow to Wellington, where I have another two speaking engagements.
It's a busy and hecic schedule, but very rewarding and I'm meeting lots of great people.
Great to be helping them with their business ideas.

It was a delight to be at the launch of the Entrepreneurship Academy Wales this week.
It took place at the new Innovation Foundry at the Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea.
I had a long chat with the Welsh Government's Business Minister Edwina Hart.
She was very down to earth and sensible lady with a real passion for helping young people.
Photos from the event are in this slideshow.

Enjoying New Zealand!

Sorry, haven't been able to catch up with this blog - but it's been a busy time.
Great launch for the Entrepreneurship Academy Wales in Swansea this week.
Then it was off to the airport . . .
A380 Emirates flight to Dubai, where we had a slight delay.
That meant cutting it fine for my flight to Auckland, where I literally landed and went straight on stage.
Auckland was the first of six public speaking engagements in New Zealand.
They were a great crowd.
There'll be more news on the New Zealand adventure soon . . .

Great time at the Introbiz show yesterday

I had a great time at the big Introbiz business show at Cardiff City Stadium yesterday.
The event started with a business breakfast and networking opportunity, but my moment in the spotlight was later in the day when I acted as the keynote speaker at the event.
It was great to talk to so many business people from throughout Wales.
The Introbiz team had worked very hard to make the event a success and the feedback during the many networking opportunities was excellent.
Among the many people I met was Gwenno Dafydd, the broadcaster and leadership coach.

Gwenno was kind enough to give the following quote to my PR man: " He (Kevin) was very generous with his time and his advice to everyone and seemed very approachable and genuine."
Meanwhile, Gwenno will be on Jason Mohammed's new programme on BBC Radio Wales today from 11.00 to 11.30 today. Tune in!

The 'Secret' is out about my Channel 5 programme

The 'Secret' is out about my new Channel 5 programme.
It’s all been very hush-hush and I couldn’t even tell my closest friends what it is all about.
Channel 5 took the wraps off the pre-publicity campaign today and I can now reveal the show is going to be called ‘Secret Interview’.
Filming was carried out earlier this year we have been busy shooting at different locations in West Wales and beyond.
The show follows my other TV appearances on Channel Four’s Secret Millionaire and Sky’s The Devil’s Dinner Party.
The Secret Interview will be unlike anything I have done previously.
The show will put eight unknowing people through an interview process they will never forget.
The unwitting candidates believe they are filming a documentary about their workplace.
In fact, they are about to have an interview for the job of a lifetime without even knowing it’s happening.
Each of them will be tested to their limits by a team of undercover actors intent on causing utter chaos.
Meanwhile, their prospective new boss watches everything.
Other stars of the Secret Interview will be Michelin starred chef Jason Atherton, the editor of women’s magazine Glamour Jo Elvin and hair stylist to the stars Nicky Clarke.
For the candidates, it’s going to be the working week of their lives and every move they make could take them a step closer to a job with the Secret Interviewers that could transform their world.
Watch out for episode two, when a pair of hopeful estate agents come up against bogus buyers and tenants from hell whilst having to remain calm and collected.
Co-produced by Twofour and GroupM Entertainment, Secret Interview will air on Channel 5 later this month.

Other information:
The series is made up of 4 x 60 minute episodes that will air from late August.

First students sign for Entrepreneurship Academy

Great day yesterday at the new 'Innovation Foundry' at the Dylan Thomas centre in Swansea.
Here is the press release about the event -

The first students have signed up for a new, fast track course that will set them on the path to business greatness.
The Entrepreneurship Academy Wales is the first of its kind in Wales and is being endorsed by entrepreneur and ‘Secret Millionaire’ Kevin Green, with further sponsorship support from Euros Jones-Evans from Telesgop, and Admiral Insurance.
The free, one year programme will lead to a BTEC qualification in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship and is open to aspiring young business leaders aged between 16 and 19.
Delivered from the Innovation Foundry at the Dylan Thomas Centre, the Academy promotes a philosophy of ‘learning by doing’ that sees students work alongside successful business figures, attend masterclasses, undertake work experience and ultimately start their own businesses.
The first four students to enrol are Joshua Dykes from Pontardawe, Geraint Vaughan and Jade Jones from Pontarddulais and Marissa Bartle from Llangennech.
Although they have very different business models in mind, from event management and photography to art and property development, all four agree on one thing - that this is an exciting, once in a lifetime opportunity.
“It’s a great feeling to be among the first students to sign up for the new Academy as there are only 16 places available in total,” says Joshua. “Having the support and guidance of Kevin Green and the other partners is an amazing opportunity for us and we can’t wait to get started.”
“I personally would have benefitted from an initiative like this when I was in school,” adds Kevin. “With a lot of hard work and passion, these students will go on to become the business leaders of tomorrow and I’m very proud to be involved and to be able to lend my support from the earliest stages of the process.”
“Today is the realisation of a dream that has been three years in the making,” says Sue Poole, Education Enterprise Manager at Gower College Swansea, which is delivering the Academy. “We are passionate about inspiring the next generation of young entrepreneurs from across Wales and are delighted to work alongside our partners to develop the talents of these exceptional young people.”
The Academy also has the backing of Cllr Mike Day and Cllr Mitchell Theaker, who both spoke of the importance of encouraging the development of skills, initiative and drive in young people.
The Academy will be officially launched in the presence of Edwina Hart AM on 8 October at the Innovation Foundry at the Dylan Thomas Centre.
Anyone interested in enrolling on the Entrepreneurship Academy Wales or becoming a partner should contact Sue Poole on 01792 284000 or email

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.

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!"

'Biggest Loser' Kevin to speak at our seminar

Great news this morning.
Kevin McLernon, the winner of ITV1's The Biggest Loser show is to join our Wealth Intensive Training programme on Saturday as a guest speaker.
For more about the event, see my website -
Kevin has agreed to share his story of how he came to apply for The Biggest Loser.
It's a story of commitment, action-taking and putting yourself out there.
He started the programme as the heaviest man ever to enter the competition at 32 stone and 2lbs. Twenty-four weeks later Kevin went on to lose 40% of his starting weight, with a final weigh-in of 19 stone 4lb, a 12 stone 12lb loss, more stones and pounds than any other contestant ever in the UK.

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 -
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."
