I'm a keynote speaker with an inspiring story of how to lead under pressure and keep going in the face of adversity.  
I teach on the KPMG Executive Leadership Programme and advise world leading companies on how to create resilient, high performance teams.

My innovative approach boosts performance and well-being, helping companies drive growth during times of uncertainty. 
It’s the reason industry leaders trust me to work with their people.  

Ronan is a world class resilience teacher. His ability to connect leaders with themselves and each other is rare.  

John Waterfield, Head of Strategic Relationships, KPMG

I blend the cutting edge science of resilience with memorable take aways to boost individual and team performance, all delivered with a good dose of humour. 

This makes me the ideal speaker for executive off-sites and all hands webinars where clients want to understand how to boost performance and wellbeing. 

Ronan gave the key-note speech to all 200 of our Senior FS Consulting Leaders on the topic of ‘resilience versus endurance’. His story was incredibly moving and the way he articulated the difference between general wellness matters and, more specifically, symptoms of burnout was hugely insightful and really resonated with the room. More importantly, his approach required us to hold a mirror up to our everyday lives and reflect on how we are all taking care of ourselves and our teams. Our Leadership Team are still talking about it and it has prompted a very healthy and open discussion about how we build resilience for ourselves and our people.

Thank you Ronan – you were brilliant.

Scott Wheatley - Head of Financial Consulting, Deloitte​


My story is a cautionary tale about the lasting consequences of burnout and how we can transform through even the greatest adversity.  

Overnight, I went from the corridors of power to being diagnosed with a lifetime chronic illness. These life experiences shape us profoundly, and I've found a way of sharing my hard won wisdom in a way that speaks directly to people's hearts. 

With genuine vulnerability, I inspire and motivate lasting change.

I left Ronan’s talk truly speechless and determined to take better care of myself. He tells his resilience story through sharing deeply moving lived experiences, anchoring it with compelling science, breathing it to life with humour and relatability – a rare, powerful alchemy that goes so far beyond a typical “keynote speaker” it seems a miss to even refer to it as that.

Essential. Inspirational. Human.
