Neil has dedicated two decades bringing sensational innovation to businesses. He has won a national award for film making, is a published author, a public speaker about branding, social media & how to build thriving businesses from the inside out.

Following a 15 year career in professional dance, film & unprofessional comedy, Neil retired from performing & has since spent two decades bringing sensational innovations to businesses helping them to grow, expand & thrive by turning their ideas into money.

Based in Manchester, Neil specialises in the creation & implementation of seamless marketing & sales systems that bring together the best of digital, social media and traditional sales practises that move businesses to profit from their intellectual property, brand value and, in-house know how

A qualified business analyst, experienced coach & engaging presenter he has worked with hundreds of clients of all sizes including British Telecom, & guest lectures on Brand & Digital Enterprise at many universities & Business Schools across the North of England. Neil was CEO of Story Creative Industries Centre in Lancaster & has helped a range of businesses flourish both in the UK & internationally.


James has been supporting businesses and Social Enterprises for more than 15 years. Much like a 17th Century Baker, he picked up these very particular skills by apprenticing with his mum who had decided that enough was enough and that he needed a proper job.

James met Neil working at MMU in Manchester where their combined talents helped to create and hone a £4million ERDF contract that supported more than 400 businesses. They realised that they both cared more about the business owners than the contract outputs and they knew they could do more and achieve better for less money.

James spent his 20’s and 30’s working in London at a series of Charities and non-profits exploring how small businesses could transform the lives of young people at risk of offending or having just been released from custody.

As well as a mostly functioning T-shirt business, James helped bring to life a street food start-up selling £10 burgers to bankers. The lure of working with convicted criminals too strong to resist, James spent several years working in different prisons within the North of England witnessing natural entrepreneurial talent being wasted behind bars & being shown the many varied ways to make hooch out of seemingly innocent ingredients.

Running a business is really bloody hard.

KiN will help you find a gang who understands this, and will have your back 100%
