Background

I was introduced to public speaking back in 2000 when I gave the Best Man’s speech at a friend’s wedding in the US. Nothing unusual about that except for the fact I was not the Best Man. I was a last-minute substitution when the Groom’s younger brother bottled out.

A year later I was giving 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 which meant handing the bride over to her new hubby and later giving the all important FOTB speech (which also happened to be taking place in the US).

Toastmasters International

I joined Toastmasters International in 2018 through my local club at EastPointDublin run by Enterprise Ireland. We meet at lunchtime every second Thursday and spend an hour practicing and refining our skills. I recently delivered my first Icebreaker speech to the Club.

Speaking Topics

With a real estate career spanning 25 years you probably wont be surprised to see real estate topics featuring heavily in my speaker topics. I like to connect with my audience by giving a fun and informative talk that leaves them motivated to take action in some form.

I speak on the following topics:

  • How to create a winning workplace.
  • Sustainability and your legacy as a landlord.
  • PropTech – an opportunity or threat?
  • Can placemaking be future proofed?
