Speaking - The Story Edge

Book me to speak

Looking for an event speaker?

If you’re looking for a World renowned, New York Times Best-Selling Author, who’s taller than 5′ 4″ – then you’ve clearly come to the wrong place. I am neither of those things. But, I have the ability to speak, to entertain and to help make your event the success you want it to be.

I’m a storyteller at heart and that’s what unites every talk I deliver. Whether you’re looking to make your audience laugh, cry or just think – I can make a connection with your audience.

Unlike the BBC, you’ll get no repeats if you work with me as a speaker. I’ll take the time to understand you, your organisation and the purpose of your event. My desire to put food on the Anderson table is matched only by my desire to entertain. That’s why I’ll put all of me, into making sure the speech I deliver is unique and, above all, memorable.


What Can I Talk About?


I like to think I can talk about just about anything. But the reality is that I have a few subjects near and dear to my heart. Here’s what I can cover:


  • Storytelling, Writing & Content Marketing


  • The Lonely Yet Productive Life of a Small, Small Business Owner

Mental Health

  • Writing my way to happiness

Previous Speaking Gigs

I’ve appeared at the MEN Arena in Manchester, a venue that holds 21,000 people. Pearl Jam were amazing – probably the best gig I’ve been to. OK, so while I might not be the most experienced speaker, six speaking gigs since June 2016 isn’t bad. I’m just starting out, but I’m gaining momentum and want to do as many speaking gigs as possible.

Here’s a selection of organisations who have booked me to speak so far.

Words People Said About Me

Kevin isn’t just a smart speaker. He’s also a soulful storyteller. He doesn’t just make you think; he makes you feel. Which is pretty much the highest praise I can offer.

Ann Handley Marketing Profs

Kevin is a fantastic guest speaker. Kevin works with you to deliver a unique and bespoke message, tailored for your audience, which is engaging and hugely entertaining. He really does his homework on your business and event and takes the audience on a journey so that everyone feels part of the speech. I would thoroughly recommend Kevin and The Story Edge.

Jacqueline Watson | Head of Marketing Henderson Loggie

Kevin was a joy to watch on stage. He obviously cares about his craft and connecting with an audience.

This isn’t a testimonial. Kevin owes me and his Dad money and he promised he’d buy us a villa in the South of France. So, yeah, please hire him as a speaker so he can fulfil his fiscal promises. Also, if he’s speaking to your audience… he’s not speaking to us. #WinWin

Me in Action

This is the first talk I delivered. My experience at the Content Marketing Academy annual shindig gave me the confidence to put myself out there as a speaker. Please note, it includes one or two ‘naughty’ words. I can, of course, keep it PG for your event if that’s what you require.

And, I know what you’re thinking. That was OK, but what I really want is someone that can also pen and perform a unique poem for our event. I know – spooky right? Might sound like an odd digression, but a witty or heartfelt piece of poetry can help tell a story and make a point.

Here are two poems I created for two different Burns Suppers.

Working with me


You’ve maybe gathered by now that I like to have fun and I don’t take myself too seriously. But here’s the thing – when it comes to your event, I take the trust you put in me very seriously. I’ll work with you to make sure that I absolutely nail it. I’m committed and passionate about blending my unique style with your goals.

But, let’s be honest, if you don’t like what you’ve seen here, then I’m probably not the right fit for you. People buy from people, and, if you don’t happen to ‘get me’ then that’s fine. If you’ve seen enough and want to take our relationship to the next level, let’s do it. Get in touch and we can arrange a short call to see if we’re a good fit.
