Kevin Landry is the type of employee that every manager wants to have on their team. He is a talented and passionate professional. He works exceptionally well with the business leaders & HR partners across the globe. And he always delivers the best quality of work with and thru others. I hope to one day work side-by-side with Kevin...he's just that good.
Kevin is an experienced talent and career development manager who understands how to involve the company's senior managers to support a talent program. He understands how to build such a program from the ground up.
The other day Marianne and I were trying to remember what qualifications we received during the time you were at HP and did the soft skills training. It is 10 years ago that we received the training and sat the exam - and we both remembered that it was a) one of the most enjoyable trainings we'd ever received and b) we could remember the content!! ...that really speaks for your training Kevin, the fact that we both could remember what you were teaching us, it really left a mark!
I worked closely with Kevin for setting up and managing key development programs in the EMEA region. Kevin is a highly responsible professional with excellent knowledge and track-record of putting together and managing high level/large scale leadership and talent programs. He is very responsive and can be trusted to deliver high quality products. I am confident working with Kevin will be a very positive and successful experience.
Talking about energetic, inspirational and leadership, is talking about Kevin.
I had the pleasure to meet Kevin during his time at Fujitsu. Together with his colleagues we designed and executed the annual Top Talent training in 2011. The target group consists of 90 very demanding high-performers from all over the world. Kevin was a decisive factor in this very successful event. He pushed us to set a detailed agenda several months before the actual day. He involved C-level executives within Fujitsu to contribute. He found great links between the general message of the training and Fujitsu's reality to make the event truly relevant. At the same time he saw to it that all the small stuff (timing, technical assistance, bookings etc) worked perfectly. Thanks to his professional and goal-oriented attitude, as well as his great personality it was a true pleasure to work with Kevin.
Kevin and I worked together on a number of talent programmes, after we met on HP's key talent programme. He provided me and my team with a comprehensive set of self assessment and development tools, feedback and analysis. With this work, many of the people I managed have now progressed to higher positions and have a clear picture of their own growth opportunities. He is without doubt one of the best talent and learning leads I have had the privilege of working with, and I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone.
