keynote speaker


Ciaran Gribbin is a sought-after and experienced corporate keynote speaker. The Northern-Irish artist has reached the pinnacle of pop music as the lead singer of INXS, written a Grammy-nominated song with Madonna and worked with the likes of U2, Snow Patrol and Paul McCartney. But it is his life story, and the engaging way he gives witness to it, that makes him such an inspirational speaker.

His journey from a young boy growing up in a bitterly divided society in North Ireland, to falling in love with a girl from the wrong side of the conflict and then following his dream to make it in the cut-throat music world is a captivating story. The gifted singer-songwriter has experienced many unique situations.

Despite the knocks and disappointments along the way, Ciaran never gave up on his childhood dream to make it in music. His is a unique story about how patience, self-belief, persistence and determination made that dream a reality.

Ciaran's keynote is sprinkled with acoustic songs, which makes his presentation even more memorable and intimate. It’s a unique experience that suits corporate events of any size – from small meetings to large conferences. 

"Life is supposed to be fun, balanced with a little bit of madness.

But, it’s a long way to the top if you want to rock and roll!”
