Ronan Harrington

Ronan Harrington teaches on the KPMG C-Suite Leadership Programme and advises world leading companies on how to create healthy, high performance cultures.

He is delighting audiences worldwide with a fresh take on resilience, revealing the hidden burnout trajectory that many of us are unwittingly on. His innovative approach helps audiences understand how to boost both productivity and wellbeing, driving company growth during times of change and uncertainty.

Ronan has delivered world-class keynotes to Deloitte, KPMG, EY, Aviva, Sky, IHG, Kellogg’s, L’Oreal, Sage, the UK Government and Oxford University.

Major clients work with him because he has a true gift for inspiring audiences. He has gained industry recognition, Highly Commended as Best Live Speaker and shortlisted as the top 5 best story tellers at the 2023 Speaker Awards.

In his keynotes, audiences are introduced to a new way of working grounded in the science of resilience, with practical tools to operate at peak performance without compromising our health. His delivery is a delightful blend of humorous reflection that encourages us to laugh at ourselves and catchy takeaways that are perfect to share later with families and teams.

His talks draw on a fascinating array of expertise, including his work as a Lead Futurist to the British Foreign Office. But Ronan’s ultimate power as a keynote speaker is to serve as a cautionary tale that inspires change.

With real vulnerability, Ronan shares how he went from the corridors of power to being diagnosed with a debilitating chronic illness. Clients often describe being deeply moved by Ronan’s story of burnout and credit him with inspiring a deeper commitment to change how they work.

Now more than ever, we need guidance on how to keep going in the face of adversity. Ronan’s story is a moving reminder that even the most difficult circumstances are an invitation to transform.

"Ronan is a world class resilience teacher. His ability to encourage leaders to connect more deeply to themselves and each other is rare."

John Waterfield, Head of Strategic Relationships, KPMG

Insightful, authentic and engaging. Ronan is a great presenter, taking a topic most are familiar with, but don’t really understand, unpacking the myths, laying out the systemic triggers and teaching some great scientifically backed techniques.

His personal story is highly compelling and I would recommend anyone working in a high-performance culture or role to spend time with Ronan.

Chris McBrayne, VP Technology, IBM

I’ve told so many people about Ronan’s talk as it was one of the most thought-provoking and poignant presentations I’ve ever had.

Dave Exall, Chief Information and Digital Transformation Officer, Simply Health.

Ronan’s keynote was one of the stand out moments at our conference. A 500 person standing ovation and by all accounts, not a dry eye in the house. The right blend of intellect and emotional storytelling, he’s the ideal speaker to create a buzz on social media and intrigue about your event

Oliver Damgaard, Managing Director, HR TechX

Ronan gave the key-note speech to all 200 of our Senior FS Consulting Leaders on the topic of ‘resilience versus endurance’. His story was incredibly moving and the way he articulated the difference between general wellness matters and, more specifically, symptoms of burnout was hugely insightful and really resonated with the room. More importantly, his approach required us to hold a mirror up to our everyday lives and reflect on how we are all taking care of ourselves and our teams. Our Leadership Team are still talking about it and it has prompted a very healthy and open discussion about how we build resilience for ourselves and our people. Thank you Ronan – you were brilliant.
