Who is IrishmanSpeaks?
I am a proud Irishman who hails all the way from a wee village in County Cork and with a brogue to prove it. Today, I am happily exiled in Chicagoland, where the natives are friendly, the winters are (ahem) chilly and I have been force-fed more corned beef and green beer by empathetic event planners than I ever had in Ireland! And I love my job! ♥ ♥ ♥
My goal – nay - my passion is to Improve People, Performance and Productivity enjoyably, and to leave you and your audience with a smile on the face, a spring in the step, a beat in the heart (which is very important I am told) AND memorable, implementable concepts to take back to a more engaged workplace and workforce.
I give thanks every day to have been blessed with the Irish gift of storytelling and humor. This allows me to present relevant content that is memorable and implementable.

"Conor was the perfect closing keynote speaker for our conference in Málaga, Spain. Frequently very funny, sometimes irreverent, but always with a serious message, he kept our delegates well entertained. His quirky take, even on mundane matters such as leaving your room before checking out of a hotel, showed us a completely different perspective, and many of us were dancing on mushrooms (his phrase) the next morning as we left the hotel. As our delegates put it,
- Very clever and certainly got message across
- Excellent speaker
- Fabulous! - compelling, entertaining and memorable"
