Background

I was introduced to public speaking back in 2000 when I had to give the Best Man’s speech as 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, this was followed by a further two Best Man speeches and the unexpected honour of being asked to stand in as a Father-of-the-Bride which meant handing the bride over to her new hubby and later give the all important FOTB speech at the wedding, which also happened to be in the US.

Toastmasters International

I became a member of Toastmasters International in 2018 through my local club at East Point run by Enterprise Ireland, We meet at lunchtime every second Thursday and spend an hour refining our skills. I recently delivered my first Icebreaker speech to the Club .

Speaking Topics

With a career spanning 25 years in the real estate sector you probably wont be surprised to see this features heavily in my speaker topics. My talks are fun, informative and leave the audience feeling inspired and moved 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?
