“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.

A Brief Introduction to IrishmanSpeaks – Conor Cunneen

Motivational Keynote Speaker Illinois on Employee Engagement / Employee Retention

 

“Hi, Conor Cunneen – IrishmanSpeaks here – an Irishman (duh!), happily exiled in Chicago where the Guinness is good, the people are friendly and I have been force fed more corned beef and green beer than I ever had in Ireland. (That is no joke! Hardly anyone eats corned beef in Ireland and God forbid someone serves you green beer!!)

As an Illinois based motivational keynote speaker, I am blessed to do a job that I love offering insights, motivation and humor to audiences from Harley-Davidson to Helsinki, Finland, from Memphis to Madrid. My core objective for each presentation or engagement is to leave my audience with a smile on the face, a spring in the step, AND memorable, actionable takeaways to improve employee engagement and employee retention

My bio will tell you I am an award winning Humorous Motivational Speaker on employee retention, engagement and coporate culture, so if it’s Chicago or De Kalb, if you are ever seeking a Motivational, Keynote Speaker for your leadership conference or in-house appreciation event, it would put a very big smile on my face and that spring in my step if we were to discuss how I can leave your colleagues / attendees with a smile on their face, a spring in the step and memorable takeaways to achieve your goals. You will find the brogue is real and the content is really good!

I like to play Metallica loud which drives my darling wife crazy!

I have worked in senior sales & marketing leadership roles in Ireland, UK and USA and was lucky enough to win Chicago Humorous Speaker of the Year for a speech – would you believe on Customer Service in San Quentin Jail!
