iCan Speak Showcase to be hosted at Be Inspired 2017

We are delighted to welcome back to our Be Inspired Conference the Award Winning and International Speaker Richard McCann.

About Richard

Richard McCann is a Sunday Times number one best selling author. He was brought up on the at risk register. He spent time in foster families and children’s homes, growing up in a turbulent family, he had little confidence and low self esteem. He left school with no qualifications and

the future looked bleak for him. After a couple of dead end jobs and being kicked out of the army, he turned to drugs, his life was heading in

the wrong direction.

In 1997 after a failed suicide attempt, Richard decided that there had to be another way. The turn around has been incredible. He decided to write a book about his transformation which sold almost half a million copies and has been translated into eleven languages. His story is one audiences do not forget in a hurry. He is now one of the UK’s most sought after motivational speakers and a presentation skills coach.

It was standing room only when Richard delivered two presentations last year at our Be Inspired Conference, so it was only fitting that we would invite him back again to host his own event, The iCan Speak Showcase.
