  1. KEVIN GRANT: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

Dr. Kevin Grant is a widely published author and a sought-after lecturer and keynote speaker. Recently Dr. Grant was inducted into International Educator Hall of Fame for his achievements in education. Dr. Grant teaches leadership, corporate finance, economics, strategy, marketing and organizational behavior at leading colleges and graduate schools in California. His consulting clients include Fortune 500, start-ups, small to medium business, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations. My goal is to help leaders and their business create an alternative future to grow in a profitable manner and in the process transform their personal leadership, influencing their team to become more productive, committed, and loyal.

My experience has allowed me to come alongside senior managers and their staff to drive transformation of their organization’s future through actionable counsel. This action has generated success using specific tools with strategic thinking and planning.

My background as a Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operations Officer has allowed me to serve as a practitioner with a wealth of experience that cuts across the arenas of leadership education, training, and consultant management. My particular approach builds on real-life situations and needs, current knowledge, a variety of theoretical and methodological “standards”, and strategic thinking. My teaching, research, and consulting practice is considerable, as it has included start-ups, small to medium businesses, educational institutions, and non-profits.

 

Dr Grant is active in a variety of leadership and other programs as a professor, consultant, trainer, and mentor. He is a frequent participant in training workshops and professional development with interests that include leadership development, organizational diagnosis, consulting theory and practice, ethics, coaching, and global leadership, Dr. Grant has lectured to leaders in the Ukraine, Guatemala and Canada helping their organizations and themselves develop an alternative future.

 

I have been teaching for over 30 years, teaching courses in Business such as finance, economics, entrepreneurship, marketing, business ethics, leadership, management, strategy, personal finance, human resource, and organizational development. I hold a PhD in Global Leadership and Entrepreneurship from Regent University and MBA in Entrepreneurial Finance from Azusa Pacific University, with over 15 years in post-doctoral teaching in higher education.

 

I have published journal articles on leadership transformation and written a book. I am currently completing two more books to be published in the near future. Most of my material for books and journals draws on my experience living is the UAE and going to boarding schools in India and Pakistan. As a result, I have worked with and engaged in the International community and see the world through a unique lens.
