He teaches on the KPMG C-Suite Leadership Programme and advises world leading companies on how to create healthy, high performance cultures. Ronan Harrington’s fresh take provides actionable ways to combat burnout and reach peak levels of performance.

All rooted in the science of resilience, Ronan debunks some of the widespread wellness initiatives implemented by companies, acting as a ‘sticking plaster’ that proves ineffective.  He helps people and corporations approach this subject in a more intelligent way – “if you don’t look after your wellness, you’ll be forced to tend to your illness”.

Ronan Harrington explores “the gift of adversity” that so many experience, and his defining moments of resilience. His honest and sometimes raw story has moved thousands of people – transforming perspectives and workplaces. He illuminates how we “put ourselves on a burnout trajectory”, as well as how to change this.
