Predictable Success® was founded and is managed by international keynote speaker and bestselling author Les McKeown.
Les has over 25 years of global business experience, including starting 42 companies in his own right. He was the founding partner of an incubation consulting company that launched hundreds of businesses with thousands of employees.
A native of Ireland, Les was awarded the Samuel Smyth Memorial Prize as a Chartered Accountant (CPA) in the UK and was, at that time, the youngest qualified Chartered Accountant in the UK. After a brief period with Price Waterhouse (now PwC), Les became Ireland's youngest ever accounting firm partner.
After a long career in advising individuals and organizations on growth and development, Les started his own training and development business; when he sold his share in that practice to his business partner in 1998, it had grown to a 13-office, worldwide training and consulting business. In 1999, Les relocated to the US, from where he writes, teaches and consults in high-performance organizational development.
Les' clients include Harvard University, US Army, Pella, Chiron Corporation, Microsoft, United Technologies, Overture Services (a Yahoo! company), Canadian Defence Department, MI-SWACO, St Vincent Health, Verisign American Express, and many others.
Les is an internationally-renowned keynote speaker, with experience speaking to groups at Google, DO Lectures and numerous Fortune 500 companies.
He is the author of national best-seller 'Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization on the Growth Track, and Keeping It There', 'The Synergist: Leading Your Team to Predictable Success', and 'Do Lead: Share your vision. Inspire others. Work towards a common goal.' His next book, ‘Do Scale’ will be released in Spring 2019.
