Over the span of his 20 year career, Mr. Slevin has earned a national reputation for empowering corporate executives to lead, communicate and inspire the stakeholders who impact their bottom line interests.

In 1996, he was elected the youngest mayor in history of Safety Harbor, Florida at the age of 27.  His experience as a Tampa Bay mayor, taught him a crucial and enduring lesson that "All Perspectives Are Influenced at the Local Level".  That knowledge greatly influenced a rewarding and successful career as a Fortune 500 public relations manager (Eckerd Drug Stores), national trade association media & political communications director (NFIB), PR agency senior vice president/general manager (Hill+Knowlton Strategies), and C-Suite consultant (SL7 Consulting).  

Slevin has counseled nations on matters affecting United States national security, led multi-million dollar corporate campaigns, and stood shoulder-to-shoulder with clients faced with historic crises and national disasters. 


Mr. Slevin’s 20 years of championing change has earned a national reputation as a consultant with an expertise on "how to" deter, deminish and defeat status quo opposition infamously known as NIMBY. He has counseled global and local corporate developers on "how to" elevate their reputations to secure political and social support for their controversial land use projects. You can find out more on the SPEAKER'S page on this website. Slevin has spoken, consulted and trained executives on the battle between change and status quo around the country and published over 50 articles.
