About

There is a famous Canadian singer named Kevin Kane. I'm not him.

Hi, I’m Kevin Kane and I work for Challenger in Cambridge, Ontario.

I help Challenger onboard new customers. I facilitate the onboarding process so that we begin serving new customers successfully and quickly.

I looked at my LinkedIn endorsements and I found that my colleagues described me as a leader who gets results for clients while maximizing profits.

They said my top 3 skills are:

  1. Effective communication
  2. Attention to details
  3. The ability to teach skills and share knowledge

They said my top 3 characteristics are:

  1. Initiative
  2. Energy
  3. A focus on results

I mostly write about marketing, communication and technology. I’ve also written for The Motley Fool, Ask The Headhunter and the Journal of Applied Psychology.

What is Core Communication?

I try to deliver core solutions for real problems. I try to take complex information and reduce it to its core problem or solution.

The process is not about dumbing down. It’s about prioritizing. Because we can only deal with so much information at a time.

If you make a speech with 10 points great points, a day later your audience might not remember any of them. It’s too much information to recall. When you communicate then, it’s essential that you strip your idea to its core: the essence or key idea of your message.

The hallmark of a great stylist is the ability to take a difficult idea and express it as simply as possible. ~Bryan Garner.
