    Meet Kevin McCarthy

     

    Author of the bestselling book, BlindSpots – Why Good People Make Bad Choices, and holds the highest certification recognized globally by the speaking industry, the Certified Speaking Professional.

    An award-winning sales professional, he built one of the largest Century 21 offices in America, then developed and sold a dot-com startup.

    In 2004, his boss was arrested for the largest stock fraud in Washington State history. As a result, Kevin spent 33 months in federal prison for a crime he didn’t knowingly commit. There he studied Cognitive Psychology and recognized — then deeply researched — the blind spots that lead to his predicament.

    Today Kevin and his team expose the invisible barriers that impact culture, operations, training, service and leadership.

    Garry Senna I’ve had the pleasure of hearing Kevin speak on several occasions. His content has always been inspiring yet practical. Kevin’s command of the stage and willingness to be vulnerable makes it easy to pay attention to him. He brings a fresh perspective on leadership that causes people to be challenged. Kevin is a great storyteller with a relevant message. If you need a captivating speaker, hire Kevin!

    Vanessa Rez, Mortgage Loan Officer, Umpqua Bank
