Mick is a successful, battle-tested political operative turned entrepreneur and business coach. Shortly after receiving his master’s degree from George Washington University, Mr. McKeown worked for a local 501(c)3 before joining the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). At DHS, Mr. McKeown’s assertive approaches and his passion for social advocacy earned him the role of Executive Director of the Homeland Security Advisory Council and Campaign Office. In this role he became a leading international voice supporting the efforts of the private and public sectors to end human trafficking. Working extensively with both Congress and the executive branch to help end trafficking, Mr. McKeown created the BeCyberSmart campaign and oversaw the rebranding of the “If you See Something, Say Something” campaign.
In 2018, after his tenure with DHS, Mick decide to take his talents in sales and business development to create a private consulting business in Pennovia. With much persistence, a vast network of business leaders and a little bit of Philly spunk, Mick forged his way in the entrepreneurial world as a Certified Book Yourself Solid coach, a podcast host, a contributing writer for brands such as Entrepreneur Magazine, and a subject matter expert in relational capital.
