Creative Performance Mastery International Pte Ltd
Kevin Cottam is a Global Nomad Speaker, Executive Coach, Consultant and Author. Based in Canada with outposts in Singapore, Brussels, and Lisbon, his mission is to inspire and encourage organizations and individuals to remove borders, be agile and expand their mindset: to embrace The Nomadic Mindset.
From his early beginnings as a champion figure skater, a former elite figure skating choreographer for World and Olympic Champions, and a director of large-scale productions such as the 1988 Olympic Closing Ceremonies, Kevin has naturally sought to expand his clients, students and audiences creativity and cognitive flexibility by presenting story-rich visual experiences. Today, he continues his mission by inspiring leaders and teams/tribes in start-ups to multinational enterprises (e.g., Thales, Givaudan, Club Med, L'Oreal, Nestle) and public sector (European Union) environments so he can further touch more cultures, people, and organisations and spread the nomadic mindset movement.
He is the author of the fresh new leadership book, The Nomadic Mindset: Never Settle…for Too Long where ancient wisdom meets modern leadership based on his research with the Maasai in Southern Kenya, Mongolian nomads, the Berbers of the Southern Sahara in Morocco as well as over 100 executives. His first self-help book, Aha, Mother's Pearls, is a compilation of twenty-seven stories of personal Aha moments of realisation.
