• Tutor - Burrill Green Corporate Security Business School
Kevin Green was born in England, and a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge, has worked in public and private sector enterprises for thirty years. He has specialised in the development of strategies to achieve new levels of growth, efficiency, and organisation. As a practitioner within organisations, and as a third party advisor, he has acquired a rounded perspective on organisational needs and behaviour.
The first part of his career saw Kevin Green working in communications, including spells with specialists like Foote, Cone and Belding, WPP's JWT, and Havas' EuroRSCG. These assignments demanded frequent travel, with a necessity to get close to markets, and to develop a keen sense of cross-cultural needs and behaviour.
His experience drew him to working internationally from city bases like London, Amsterdam, New York, Paris, and Madrid, serving a diverse range of globally-operating blue-chip companies, which cluster into three groups. Firstly, the technology focused operators like Hewlett-Packard, Kodak, Philips, Xerox, and Unysis; secondly, the manufacturers from food and personal products like Colgate-Palmolive, Kraft General Foods Mars, Nestle, Procter & Gamble and Unilever to cars like Mercedes, Peugeot-Citroen and Volvo; and thirdly, service providers ranging from local government to utility corporates in gas, oil, and telecommunications.
Kevin Green has worked frequently with teams to develop new products and services, and marketing support portfolios for them. This work has been coupled with a career long interest in training, coaching, and development, and he has undertaken a series of executive development roles in parallel with his general management activities.
Kevin continues to focus on helping organisations identify, create, and realise additional value from their core assets.

This book "Value From Security" demonstrates what security's real capabilities are, and what needs to be done to realise them. The experiences presented have occurred in real organisations, globally, that are reaping the rewards of being at the vanguard of this new approach to security management.
crossing the line
"Crossing The Line" is about crossing the very real line that separates the worlds of public and private security and risk management. It is a guide for key players who are thinking of switching sectors and roles and moving from one kind of organisation and operating culture to another often significantly different one.
The book, which contains and draws upon a thesis on interrogation by David Burrill, sets a contemporary context surveying ways that truth and lies are increasingly entwined and legitimised to support behaviour that is unjustifiable and offers hope through the application of some humane principles.
