In 1985, founded a computer consultancy specialising in the customisation of marketing and financial packages. Projects for league football clubs, petrol retailers and the Manchester Business School, provided a wealth of hands-on business experience.
Working with Marketing Workshop, I found that my ability to understand and translate high technology language to suit the intended audience made a positive and growing contribution to the business. This was formally recognised by forming a partnership in 1987 and name change to Ainsworth Maguire.
From building our PCs and network, through software implementation, and now migrating to the cloud, I retain my keen sense of technology and apply these skills to the benefit of our clients in PR. Indeed with the internet, mobile communications, social media, digital photography and video, it seems my skills are more relevant to technology PR than ever.
After an early technical sales career in HVAC, industrial coatings and aerospace Kevin started Marketing Workshop in 1985. Completion of the CIM diploma and an Open University degree in technology and management followed soon after. Collaboration with Adrian Maguire and the formation of Ainsworth Maguire followed in 1987.
Communication is a core skill. Kevin uses this to give a business a voice to promote ideas, demonstrate capability, best practice and innovation.
This involves written and visual content creation, from substantial web sites and video scripts to feature articles, media briefing packs and support for events.
Outside work - mountains, moors and coastlines are a source for inspiration and relaxation. Travel, with friends and family, in the UK and overseas, perhaps taking in a roadside inn for good food and refreshment are the perfect accompaniment.
