“What stands out most about Kevin is his unique ability to balance strong delivery of results with a flexible, collaborative approach. He exceeded my expectations with the thought put behind his strategies as well as the quality of his services.
At the same time, Kevin was always delightful to work with, and his positive attitude always helped carry the entire team through any challenging circumstances that arose.
It is rare to find someone with such strong talent who is also so humble and easy to work with, and it is this combination that I believe allows him to work so effectively with his clients. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Kevin anytime as my Church Consultant, and I give him my endorsement without any hesitation.”
“Kevin gave me a new look and exactly the style boost I was looking for! He made it easy for me to let go of things I was holding onto, but not wearing. Kevin was professional and sensitive in his approach to explaining why I shouldn’t be wearing certain pieces and it made putting them in the donate pile a little easier. Kevin’s talent at pairing pieces, colors and patterns to create a unique look is amazing. He has a unique insight and vision and puts things together that I never would have considered. I have never felt so good or confident when getting ready for work, play, or any occasion. Kevin has made has made getting dressed truly fun again!”

What an amazingly productive session it was this afternoon! This is an email bringing loads of gratitude. I can’t thank you enough for the insight you showed toward prioritizing my ideas and projects. The “values” stuff was so helpful. However, more than that you took an enormously creative leap on my behalf and saw what I couldn’t. You have put it all into context and given me a huge gift. I feel great relief. This will go down as one of my life’s most pivotal points – never to be forgotten. I have so much energy and enthusiasm now.”

“Kevin partnered on a consulting project for our urban male development initiative at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) in April.
The scope of work for Mr. Russ was to help a cross-sectional group comprised of academic, student development and faculty members come up with a plan to implement an urban male leadership program at the college Kevin did an awesome job.
Not only did he provide assistance in the form of thought leadership which he did gladly, but he also led the charge in helping us develop our program and provide a number of trainings for staff and faculty to increase our professional development around this subject matter.
Kevin helped BMCC formulate a feasibility study and needs assessment that helped us understand all of the various issues that we needed to take into consideration in setting up our program. Additionally, Kevin took the time to really consult with our institution in order to come up with a plan and strategy that fit our dynamics and culture. It wasn’t a cookie-cutter approach.
Kevin is an excellent teacher and facilitator. His candid and professional approach made the training both interesting and fun. All the information I needed to be successful in was presented in a very organized manner that was easy to learn and retain. I would strongly recommend Kevin Russ L.L.C. to anyone interested in using consultants to help expand their black male initiative.”
