Ramblings, Musing and thoughts from from Chicago based keynote speaker and motivational humorist Conor Cunneen
Leadership Speaker Chicago on the power of ‘What do I want to be famous for?”
As a Leadership speaker Chicago to Healthcare, Manufacturing and Corporate clients, I’ve spent many years exploring the importance of clear Goals and Vision with a lot of very smart people.
Developing clear vision is not an easy exercise, but I now boil this exercise down to one “simple” question –
“What do I want to be famous for?”
I don’t mean famous as in TV / Media fame but “What do I want to be famous for with my work colleagues / customers / stakeholders.” What do I want them to say about me / my business / my Brand when I am not in the room?
Positive Upbeat Attributes
I’m presuming you want them to make positive, upbeat, complimentary comments about your behavior and work practices – comments that suggest they appreciate your efforts and that they look forward to you being on their team for the next project.
Are you famous for being collaborative, proactive, innovative, compassionate, trustworthy, a go getter, someone who can be relied on, who keeps their promises and commitments?
What is the Headline?
In crafting your answer to “What do I want to be famous for?” – envision the end of year conference when you win employee of the year or you are profiled in the industry magazine. What is the headline?
You almost certainly will answer with positive qualities and attributes. The challenge for you is to live those qualities, but the first step is to ask and answer the question – “What do I want to be famous for?” Try it.

Leadership Speaker Chicago
Choose Your Attitude!
As a speaker who once relied on Administrative Professionals to keep me someway on the right track, and now as a speaker for Administrative Professionals Day / Week, I often think about what makes the difference in a workplace environment.
As you will see from this short video clip, I truly believe that Attitude is critical in any environment.
This is a fun clip where I had a chat with a Chicago cop! I had to ask myself the question “What do I want my Attitude to be?”

Inspirational Funny Motivational Speaker for Nurses Week
When Audrey Fraser of the Association of Registered Nurses, Prince Edward Island contacted me to say she was seeking an “Inspirational Funny Motivational Speaker” for her nurses conference, I have to say I was intrigued because it is one part of Canada I had never visited.
The quaint town of Charlottetown is a wonderful bike ride, although I was sometimes asking “What do I want my Attitude to be?” when cycling up hill against really strong winds!! I love telling this Attitude story whether it is presenting as a funny motivational speaker to nurses or as a motivational leadership to the c-suite, the message about choosing your attitude is powerful.
Conor Cunneen-IrishmanSpeaks – Your Inspirational Funny Motivational Speaker for Nurses Week and Nurse Leadership
I had an absolute blast speaking to the Association and was delighted to receive this wonderful testimonial from Audrey.
“Conor Cunneen was fantastic when he spoke to our 235 nurses. He nailed it on all levels: Learning, laughter, leadership, and always reminding us to keep the patient at the centre of our care.
We were absolutely delighted with this Irishman and his pragmatic approach to life and business. Thank you so much Conor. Thanks to you, 235 nurses are now planning their goals, thinking about what their brand will look like, what their attitudes should be and so much more.
You’re the best!!!!!”
I love my work and I love speaking to nurse groups. If you like what you see here, give me a shout. You’ll find the brogue is real!!
