Speaking


Book me to Speak at your next Event

I am an accomplished speaker with an engaging story to tell and a range of speaking points that are relevant to both an experienced and inexperienced audience. With a career spanning more than twenty years I have enjoyed a good deal of success and failure and cover both in my talks.

I am comfortable giving a keynote to either a large live audience or via an online delivery platform such as Zoom. It can be live or recorded for use in a podcast. I like to cover a wide range of topics keeping the audience fully engaged anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes.

Speaking Topics

I usually take the audience on a short journey that covers my backstory and career before turning to the topic at hand. I can tailor the talk as required but typically I cover one or more of the following topics:

  • Creating a Winning Workplace
  • Trends Driving the Corporate Office
  • Real Estate Investment – the Mental Game
  • PropTech – Opportunity or Threat?
  • The Real Estate Rollercoaster Ride (my backstory)
  • Lessons Learnt – the Do’s & Don’ts of Real Estate
  • Covid-19 and its Impact on Real Estate

My Speaking background

My introduction to public speaking was something of a baptism of fire. It was at a friend’s wedding in Boston way back in August 2000 when I was given just 24-hours notice to prepare the Best Man’s speech. The Groom’s younger brother had been scheduled to give the speech but backed out the day before and I was called in as a last-minute substitution.

A year later I gave the Groom’s speech at my own wedding and this was followed by a further two Best Man speeches and the unexpected honour of being asked to stand in as the Father-of-the-Bride for my cousin who was getting married in New York City.

Whilst the first Best Man’s speech was terrifying, as time went by I found I was actually enjoying them more and more. Before long I was looking for opportunities to speak.

Toastmasters International

I joined Toastmasters International through a local club run by Enterprise Ireland at EastPoint which is the business park I run. We meet at lunchtime every other Thursday and spend an hour practicing and refining our skills. I have participated in and won a number of speaking contests run both at the Club, Area and District level.
