Hailing from an Irish village, Ronan has experienced a prodigious rise to global leadership:
At 23, he was nominated as one of the youngest Fellows of the Royal Society of the Arts;
at 24, he was Head of Innovation at a global creative agency,
at 25, he was a lead futurist at the British Foreign Office;
at 26, he was accepted to the Oxford School of Government;
at 27, he was one of youngest executives in the City of London, as Director of Futures and Strategy of a global firm;
at 28, he founded Alter Ego, a global network of leaders who are pioneering transformational change in society.
A visionary thinker on the future of organisations and societies, Ronan offers a compelling picture of where the world is going, and who we must become.
In 2016, Ronan founded Alter Ego, an organisation working to gather high profile leaders in order to find our way out of this crisis moment in history. Alter Ego gatherings have brought the world’s most pioneering business and political leaders in high profile retreats to decode this process of psychological and cultural change at an organisational and societal level.
Ronan now applies this thinking with leaders who are affecting transformational change at the highest levels of international media, business, politics and the arts. His most recent work has included being a lead facilitator for the Reformist Group, a high powered network of international business, political and media leaders who are advising on future reforms to the European Union. He was also a lead contributor to Theama, a multidisciplinary think tank providing insight and inspiration for the world renowned choreographer Akram Khan as he devised his final solo performance Xenos.
