Welcome to the BlindSpot Zone, a captivating keynote that delights audiences and compliments your event.
Blindspots are those unconscious biases, implicit associations, memory traps and thinking errors that affect our behavior and decision-making abilities.

The BlindSpot Zone keynote is meant to inspire audiences and reinforce an event’s core message. Kevin captivates audiences with spellbinding, real life stories involving some of the biggest names in sports, one of the largest stock fraud cases in his State’s history, and the enigmatic FBI. He even shares how his blindspots landed him in prison for 33 months, which always gets an audience’s attention!

MCCARTHY

Kevin McCarthy is a dynamic, inspirational keynote speaker, master trainer & executive coach for Making Better Happen, LLC.

In addition, Kevin is the 2016-17 President-elect for the National Speakers Association Oregon chapter, where he recently won a Member of the Year award.

Kevin began his professional speaking career in 1994 while he owned the 13th largest Century 21 office in the USA, and held a position on the Board of Directors for the Phoenix area Century 21 brokers. Thriving as a speaker, he sold his real estate company and began traveling the country helping industry leaders position themselves for a brave new World Wide Web.

During his extensive travels, Kevin developed a web-based software solution that would position his real estate clients for optimum success. He eventually sold that company for a substantial sum during the craziness of the dot com era.

His next opportunity blindsided him with a prison sentence he didn’t see coming. Welcome to The BlindSpot Zone!

Kevin continues to work with industry leaders to uncover the blindspots that affect their behavior and hinder their influence.

S. Morgan, Pioneer Telephone Cooperative
I thought Kevin did a fantastic job in presentation. He was smooth. He was professional. The message was very heart-warming and I really appreciated his hubris of being able to admit that he made a mistake. But, then to give us the lesson of what it takes to make up for that to survive and thrive. I really appreciated it. It was inspirational!

Kevin was our first keynote speaker kicking off our 2014 seminar and he did a great job! Everybody seemed compelled by his stories that he unfortunately has lived through. It will impact their lives in a positive way.
