The Speaker

A very popular speaker on the circuit. Kyran is a bright guy (trained in law) that has a strong understanding of sport and what businesses can learn from rugby and sport in general. His story is very much about competition (having battled for the starting scrum half slot with Matt Dawson throughout his career) in addition to overcoming adversity, as in his first cap against the All Blacks he was cruelly stamped on suffering a nasty injury. He then went on to have major back troubles, but always fought back. There were times during the 2003 world cup that he wasn't even able to bend over to do up his boots before a game. His story is one of mental toughness, perseverance and focus.

In 2007 Kyran swapped in boots for skates on the hugely popular ITV show, Dancing on Ice. Winning the show was a new beginning for Kyran as he went on to engage his entrepreneurial skills into setting up and running a successful touring skating show, Kyran's Ice Party. This experience means that Kyran is an ideal choice to speak on managing change, retraining and goal setting.

Not only is Kyran a great fit for focused business speaking, he also has a fantastic array of anecdotes and entertaining stories. Thanks to his timing, sharp wit and ability to laugh at himself, he makes a great after dinner speaker that not only reaches out to sport fans, but anyone who simply wants to laugh.

Kyran is also edept at hosting and facilitating functions

Speaking topics include:
  • Leadership in tough times
  • Overcoming adversity
  • Building a winning team
  • Transferring skills
