Kev House, Art of Brilliance

Kev House, Art of Brilliance

In 2006, as an out of control, obese, heavy drinking Type 1 Diabetic, doctors gave Kev the ultimatum - to change or face the consequences. After reluctantly reading some of that ‘airy fairy positivity stuff’ he was shocked at the results when he put the ideas into practice! The benefits are incredible: more energy, improved mood and flourishing professionally. Kev is inspiring children and adults through keynote speaking and workshops to take control and manage their own minds, develop self-awareness, grit and most importantly, self-love! Kev’s history is a case study in positivity, goal-setting and personal responsibility.
