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 (KGW) and is is a Dynamo role model for Welsh Assembly Government where he inspires young people in schools and universities to set up businesses. For information see http://www.bigideaswales.com
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.
We will be running out of seats shortly. Make sure you book yours right away to avoid disappointment. This is the must attend event series on 2012.
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 and he enjoys giving businesses and organisations an insight into what it takes to become successful in the business world.
Kevin loves to keep fit by water skiing, walking and running. He ran the London Marathon in 2010 raising money for Amber Foundation (reform centre for young offenders), Kevin enjoyed the experience so much that he has continued to run in half marathons and recreationally. Supporting the Wales rugby team by attending international matches with his friends is one of his highlights. However, Kevin is even happier when he is relaxing with his three children, daughter Llinos who is 18 and sons, Carwyn 16 and Emyr 14.
The wealth guru 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’.
These qualities have catapulted him into worldwide demand as a speaker at conferences, dinners and seminars. Kevin has travelled throughout the UK, Asia, Australia and New Zealand in the past year and has spoken alongside Sir Richard Branson as well as other business magnates.
Some of his clients include British Airways, Yorkshire Bank, Welsh Assembly, Welsh Development Agency, UK Techniums 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 is an ambassador to Make-A-Wish Foundation and has personally contributed over £300,000. He is a Patron of The Ray Gravell and Friends Charitable Trust, the Huger Day Project and a member of The Professional Speaking Association. He contributes to several other charities like Sibs and The Saint Thomas Lupus Trust amongst others. He is an entrepreneur with a big heart.
