Educated at the High school and TCD, Kingsley won his D.U.F.C. Colours in 1973-4 is a Knight of the Campanile and went on to represent Leinster.
He then became the very successful CEO of the Worldwide Ireland Funds, galvanising the Irish diaspora around the world and raising funds of over €250m in that role. He was recognised internationally as the global guru of philanthropic fundraising. He is now still on the international stage as the CEO of a consultancy he set up, “The Networking Institute” http://www.thenetworkinginstitute.com
In a website for speakers, Kingsley was described thus:
“Networking guru Kingsley has a unique speaking style and delivery which puts across with passion and humour. His stock of anecdotes and stories based on his global experiences keeps audiences entertained and informed and leaves them with a series of uplifting messages.”
Kingsley is an innovative, imaginative and forward looking thinker as an extract from his contribution to the “Trinity Tales” book of that name highlights:
Trinity polished us rough diamonds and helped us shine in the real world. For that we owe a debt of gratitude and perhaps in helping College we can all respond to the call to be good ancestors, to make an impact the results of which we will never see, as in the words of the proverb – plant a tree under whose shade you will not sit. €65 pp
