By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 25 Jul 2017

A MAN who is moulded to the driving seat of leadership will ensure this year’s Business Hive Live event is flat-out in the finest possible  fashion. 

Kevin Gaskell, former chief executive of iconic motor brands Porsche, BMW and Lamborghini, will be on stage at the Grimsby Auditorium on October 3, as the South Bank’s largest business-to-business exhibition returns.

Mr Gaskell is described as an “extraordinary leader” who drove the top end marques to unprecedented levels of success.

“A corporate trailblazer, serial entrepreneur and world class team builder, Kevin is a highly motivational and engaging speaker,” said Sam Burgess, Business Hive manager, who is looking forward to the fourth annual event.

“We are really excited about this year’s Business Hive Live,” she said. “We are bringing the best ever line-up of national and international business speakers, a brand new Tech Lounge and a host of exciting local businesses exhibiting throughout the day. 

“We set out to bring inspiration and information to our local business community and I have no doubt we are going to deliver that in spades.”
