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 productivity and wellbeing, helping companies to dig deeper and 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 humour and flair. 

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’. 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​


Industry leaders work with me because I have a true gift for inspiring audiences.

My jaw dropping story is a cautionary tale about the pressures of senior leadership and the lasting consequences when we get it wrong. 

A former futurist to the British Foreign Office, I share how I went from the corridors of power to being diagnosed with a lifetime chronic pain condition.

It’s quite rare that a keynote speaker vulnerably shares what it’s like to be in the midst of an ongoing adversity. This is the very insight we need as we attempt to meet greater challenges and expectations. 

By sharing myself fully, I reveal what it truly means to be resilient.


Keynote and Workshop Topics

I have 9 keynote and workshop offerings that work for stand alone webinars and away days.

They have been created as a direct response to the latest research on the root causes of burnout, disengagement and lost productivity.

Each keynote has a full list of key take aways so you know exactly what your people will experience. They have been celebrated by major clients including KPMG, Deloitte, EY, Aviva and Kellogg's in the past six months and references are available upon request.

I also create bespoke keynotes that fit the theme my clients want to prioritise. 


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.
