About this event

Renowned businessman, Bob Keiller has an extensive business history with most notable achievements including creating PSN by completing a $280m management buyout from Halliburton in 2006

Keiller, who confirmed his retirement from Wood Group in 2015, set up the consultancy AB15 to give entrepreneurs affordable access to his years of experience.

“AB15 is a working name for a consultancy that captures the idea of providing support for others and without trying to make it a profit making organisation,” Keiller said.

“What I’m trying to do is say if I provide you with tens of thousands of pounds worth of coaching I want you to turnaround and provide that coaching to the next generation of businesses – maybe not now, maybe not next year but maybe in five years’ time or even longer. I want to try and create that pay forward commitment, that ripple effect, so people can take what I give them and what other people give them and say this creates an obligation and I have to give this back somewhere along the line.”
