Speaker for Nurses Week – Continuing Ed – Nurse Leadership, Education & Symposium

Winthrop-University Hospital, Mineola, NY writes: 

“Conor we can’t thank you enough for speaking at our Symposium. Everyone loved your presentation- how could they not!!!

As nurses we need a little laughter with our Symposium’s. Our lives are too serious. YOU ARE A GREAT OPENER!!!  We always try to add humor whenever we can…..even at work. We try to keep things light if possible, especially when it’s busy. After all, what do we want our attitudes to be…..I heard that somewhere. 

We can’t thank you enough for providing the humor that we need.”

“Hi, Conor Cunneen – IrishmanSpeaks here – an Irishman (duh!), happily exiled in Chicago where the Guinness is good, the natives are friendly and I have been force fed more corned beef and green beer than I ever had in Ireland. I am blessed that as a two-time cancer survivor (prostate and thyroid), I  can give thanks every day to the wonderful nurses and healthcare professionals who helped me on my journey journey.

As a two-time cancer survivor, I often feel sheepish when people say “Well done and Congratulations on beating prostate and thyroid cancer.” My heartfelt response is “The people who deserve the credit are nurses, doctors and healthcare providers and my darling wife. I would not be a speaker talking about being a cancer survivor if I did not have those great support networks.”

My bio will tell you I am an award winning Humorous Motivational Speaker to Healthcare, Nursing and Oncology events, so if you are ever seeking a Motivational, Keynote Speaker for Cancer Survivorship events, Oncology Conferences, Nurses Week or Nurses Conference / Symposium, a cancer-survivor who will leave you and your colleagues, nurses, survivors and caregivers with a smile on the face, a spring in the step and memorable takeaways to Keep on, Keepin’ On, I would love to hear from you. You will find the brogue is real and the content is really good.”

Conor is a multiple author who has worked in Ireland, UK and USA. Conor is a Chicago Humorous Speaker of the Year.

Some Thoughts on Selecting a Humorous Motivational Speaker for Nurses Week

Nurses play a crucial role in healthcare, and your contributions cannot be overstated.

You work tirelessly to care for patients, regularly putting your own needs aside to provide compassionate and attentive care. Nurses week is one way to annually recognize and appreciate the hard work and dedication of nurses across the world. If Nurses Week is an excellent opportunity to inspire, motivate and appreciate nurses for their contributions, one highly effective way to do this is by bringing in a humorous motivational speaker (preferably an Irishman who has been working on his Chicago accent for over 20 years – to no effect!) who will leave you and your colleagues with a smile on the face, a spring in the step and memorable, actionable takeaways to improve the workplace AND the patient experience.

Here are some reasons why humorous motivational speakers are a great idea for Nurses Week:

1. Put a Smile on Nurses’ Faces

Nursing is a stressful and demanding job, and nurses can easily become overwhelmed with the pressures of their work. Humorous motivational speakers have a unique talent for putting a smile on people’s faces, even in the most challenging of circumstances. By bringing in humorous motivational speaker – IrishmanSpeaks Conor Cunneen, nurses can have a break from their daily routines and be entertained, uplifted, and inspired.

We try to keep things light if possible, especially when it’s busy. After all, what do we want our attitudes to be…..I heard that somewhere. We can’t thank you enough for providing the humor that we need.”

2. Help Reduce Stress

Nursing can be a stressful job (duh!), and the effects of stress on a nurse’s mental and physical health can be severe. Humorous motivational speakers can help to reduce stress levels by using humor to create a relaxed and enjoyable environment. Laughter has been shown to reduce stress levels, lower blood pressure, and improve overall mood. By reducing stress levels, nurses can improve their focus and concentration, which can lead to better patient outcomes.

3. Improve the Patient Experience

As a humorous motivational speaker who will make you and your colleagues feel better, this can help to improve the patient experience in a very real way. When nurses are happy and motivated, they are more likely to provide even more compassionate and attentive care. Patients can sense when their nurses are stressed or unhappy, and this can affect their overall experience. By bringing in a humorous motivational speaker, nurses can be motivated and inspired to provide the best care possible, which can lead to better patient outcomes.

4. Provide Inspiration and Motivation

Humorous motivational speakers are great at inspiring and motivating people. As a two-time cancer survivor (prostate & thyroid) I believe I have a unique talent for sharing stories and anecdotes that can resonate with nurses on a personal level. This can inspire and motivate nurses to continue to do their best work, even in the most challenging of circumstances.

Binghamton Hospital NY writes about this engaging virtual keynote speaker for nurses and healthcare

Mr. Conor Cunneen presented the Gift of GAB (Goals, Attitude, Behavior), at United Health Services 22nd Annual Oncology Teaching Day. He was without a doubt very entertaining, extremely thought provoking, and subtle but yet direct in moving the attendees to look at their behaviors, and their attitude at work, home and in their daily relationships.  He was EXCELLENT and received rave reviews- from nurses mind you, who are often very stingy with their compliments! I would recommend him very, very highly for your corporate or healthcare event.

Edward Hospital – Nurse Evaluations 

Fantastic speaker on the Gift of GAB (Goals, Attitude, Behavior) – much appreciated and taken to heart to be used when times can be difficult at home and at work. Thank you. I wish more of our staff nurses could experience it. We will have to take the message back. 

AND 

Mr. Cunneen should definitely come back. If there was a presentation to put in mandatory education – this is it.
