Ronan Harrington is the perfect speaker on how to move from burnout to resilience.

He teaches on the KPMG C-Suite Leadership Programme and advises the world’s leading companies on how to create healthy, high performing cultures.

Ronan’s expertise comes from a fascinating array of senior leadership roles.

Over a decade ago, Ronan became one of the youngest Fellows of the Royal Society of the Arts. As a lead Futurist to the British Foreign Office (at the age of 24), he authored a report on the world of 2030 and how the British Government should respond.

He received a Masters in Public Policy from Balliol College, Oxford University, and then became one of youngest executives in the City of London, as Director of Futures and Strategy at RPC.

It is not only expertise, but hard won wisdom that defines Ronan as a speaker.

In 2020, he led the political strategy for the Global Environmental Movement, Extinction Rebellion, coordinating a global movement in over 60 cities around the world. Like many leaders, the weight of responsibility led to severe burnout and in Ronan’s case being diagnosed with a debilitating chronic illness.

Having overcome incredible difficulty, Ronan now shares the hidden drivers of burnout and what neuroscience-based tools, and cutting-edge team practices are best to manage stress, overwhelm and drama.

Now more than ever, we need guidance on how to keep going in the face of adversity. This means real insights, the kind that can only come from deep expertise and genuine experience.

Ronan brings both.
