Better Next Time

Some people are satisfied when a solution “works”. Not us. In everything we do, we always look for a way to take something good, and make it great. Better, faster, simpler. It’s just what we do, instinctually.

Today’s achievement is tomorrow’s benchmark.

Tell It Like It Is.

Ever meet someone that just tells it like it is…good or bad? Well, that’s us. We believe that life is simpler when things are transparent. This seems like common sense – but it’s not common, and we have very little patience for things that claim to be much more – or different – than they really are.

Presenting things as they are makes life simpler. That way you don’t have any “stories” you need to remember!

More Than You Say

We are people who believe in doing more than expected. Call it generosity. Call it a desire to help. Call it a need to please. The key is that we are driven to – and take pleasure in – doing something extra. It’s good for our clients and relationships – and rewarding for us, too.

The person that gives more than expected will, sooner or later, be rewarded more than expected.

Start with Respect

Although we’re passionate about the best things in life, we aren’t keen on the attitudes that often go with them. We are down-to earth people who treat everyone with equal respect. For us, respect has a lot to do with listening to – and considering – different perspectives. With an open mind, it’s amazing what you can learn.

Some think that respect is earned. We start by giving it.

Most advice people get about how to improve a company – or create a rich and rewarding life – is nonsense.

And many of the theories, frameworks and ideas – the ‘best practices’ – about how to improve strategies and people simply do not translate to entrepreneur-led, high-growth companies.

In fact, they are often the perfect solution for mediocrity.

We don’t do best practices. And we don’t do what everyone else does.

For over twenty years, we’ve studied – and worked with – some of the best high-growth firms in the world, and the things we do are not for the faint of heart.

We cut through all the fear, and the time-wasting, non value- adding theories, to design the sharpest strategy, the best profitability and margins, the best balance sheet for our clients.

And we keep it simple. We know that whatever we do together has to be easy to implement, or it simply won’t get done.

Call us if you want to be the best – if you want strategy so smart and teams so strong, you make the competition nervous.

Call us if you are committed to being phenomenal – and having a great life.


Contagious passion and energy. Practical, insightful, no-nonsense tools and ideas. A fully engaged audience. These are the hallmarks of dynamic facilitator and speaker Kevin Lawrence.

Leadership Development

When CEOs and executives are too consumed by day-to-day responsibilities to invest in their own development, they become ill equipped to meet the demands of the company’s growth.

Strategic Planning

With the pressure to reduce margins and increase profits, leaders get caught up in the day-to-day, and forget to keep their strategy – and competitive edge – as sharp as it needs to be.

CEO & Executive Coaching

Leveraging the principles in Your Oxygen Mask First, we’ll show you how to continue to grow stronger and more capable to build a high-performing team that becomes your competitive advantage

Executive Screening & Hiring

Executive screening and hiring presents a series of challenges for any organization. Our effective screening and hiring programs help mitigate the risks and address the unique demands of growing your executive team.

Two powerful and opposing influences have shaped Kevin Lawrence’s life: a man who reached the pinnacle of success and lost everything, including his life; and two people who were never given the opportunity to even try to fulfill their dreams.

The first was Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll. When news of his shocking death came over the car radio one hot summer day, Kevin wondered how a man like Elvis Presley – who had so much talent, money and fame and was adored by millions of people – could spiral down so far.

The second were his parents who paid a different cost when they were unable to achieve the lives they dreamed about. This post-WWII generation of people worked hard to re-build their lives and sacrificed much to take care of their families.

Kevin became driven to understand more – to find a way to prevent others from either fate, and to discover how people could achieve and sustain great success and enjoy themselves along the way. It became his life work and the heart of Lawrence & Co Growth Advisors.

For over 20 years, Kevin has studied the science and art of achievement, as he helped ambitious, high-performing CEOs, entrepreneurs and executives, around the world, to scale their business and enhance their lives.

Through amazing insights, perspectives and strategies, he learned that – no matter the culture, economy or industry – people who strive for success meet the same challenges and struggles.

He also works to mitigate the damaging effects of well-intended but misdirected advice leaders often receive from people around them – advice that doesn’t apply to the unique circumstances of the high-achieving, entrepreneurial life. These high-performers need simple, direct and practical tools and techniques to quickly get to the heart of what matters most – in work and in life.

Lawrence & Co’s work focuses on sustainable and enhanced growth for you and your business.

We provide the best, expert advisors (with proven track records based on client feedback) for entrepreneur-led small to medium enterprises – and the best tools and advice.

Simple, impactful. No BS. No fluff.

Our diverse and experienced group of advisors can help your leaders and executive teams stay competitive through various learning tools including workshops, webinars, executive retreats, or one-to-one coaching.
