Kevin Urban brings both his passion and expertise helping clients discover their unique flow and package their "force" into a brand.
Kevin Urban is an actor and personal brander from New York City. Kevin helps actors, performers and entrepreneurs to establish their own personal brand, which in turn helps them authentically package their own ventures. His recent Tedx: "The Price of Pleasing" explains his philosophy.
Having originally concentrated on branding actors, Kevin broadened his clientele after realizing that everyone can benefit from understanding how they are perceived in society. His clients can be seen gracing the Broadway stages, FOX, NBC, CBS, HBO and major motion pictures.
As an actor, Kevin is a member of SAG-AFTRA and Actors Equity and his career has spanned television, film, national commercials and regional musical theater. Most recently Kevin filmed Family Fang directed by Jason Bateman.
As a teacher, Kevin's approach is holisitc; focusing on the psychological, physiolgical, and the emotional with the philosophy that everyone is talented in some way. It's the job of the student with the teachers guidance to unlock that talent. Informed by his love of business models and design, Kevin’s talent to collect and synthesize information in an effective way helps clients connect the missing dots in their career. With a flair for the visual, Kevin’s strengths lie in packaging and design with a clear plan of how to combine talents and business acumen
Kevin has taught classes for PACE University, New York Conservatory of Dramatic Arts, New York Film Academy, Musical Theater Educators Aliance, Baldwin Wallace, and on both coast with The Savvy Actor Inc., the latter of which he co-founded. Kevin has taught students from over 23 different countries, and recently returned from Helsinki, Finland where he led workshops on "Personal Branding For A Global Society."
What some happy clients say:
Thank you for a very thought provoking weekend. The branding exercise was especially eye-opening. I'm used to branding packaged goods and it is certainly different from taking a look at yourself. It was a pleasure talking to you. So much of what you said reverberated within me.
