AOK Events


Project Description

Kershaw Partners was brought in to AOK Events in 2015 with the specific task of helping them grow and develop into a more substantial, sustainable, professional and profitable event management business. At the time, AOK were operating principally as a corporate hospitality broker at major sports events, with some involvement in venue finding and more general event management.

Working alongside the CEO, Kershaw Partners helped scope a plan to focus the business into three divisions with individual, accountable and responsible Department Heads. We rapidly identified a competitor hospitality company as a potential acquisition and facilitated a deal that saw AOK’s Hospitality division double in size within the first year, whilst creating a strong, new brand for AOK Venues and AOK Creative – both of which have continued to thrive under the new structure.

Individual mentoring

Kershaw Partners helped introduce robust procedures, improved corporate governance, a change in financial  reporting policy and have continued to provide strategic guidance and individual mentoring as well as the introduction of further acquisition opportunities

Kershaw Partners exists to help businesses GROW. We are a group of highly experienced business leaders who have successfully grown companies and who now want to help another generation succeed
