Declan Kavanagh holds a DipEng in Telecommunications & Electronics from the Dublin Institute of Technology, a CDipAF from the ACCA, and an MBA from Dublin City University. He has over 33 years of experience, starting as a hardware test engineer in the IT industry up to founder and CEO in both multinational enterprises and entrepreneurial start-ups. Declan now advises entrepreneurs and business leaders on how to create momentum and acceleration in the Key Performance Indicators for their firms, as well as being actively involved as an added value investor with several technology start-ups. He has been a successful intrapreneur in large enterprises, where he led strategic business change and increased added value from subsidiary to parent. He has started, scaled and successfully sold an IT services business to the Capgemini Group. He has also been involved with struggling ventures, so he has had to lead in both good and challenging times. Declan developed the BAM™ and authored the book Advantage based on his research and experience. He identified that a road-map was needed for entrepreneurs, leaders and students that would complement the models already in use and help readers and users of the BAM™ in a practical and pragmatic manner pull their resources together and ensure they do the right things the right way at the right time.
