Kick-ass Keynote Speaker

If you're looking for an inspiring and engaging speaker for your next corporate event then look no further than Ciaran Gribbin!

From the war-torn streets of Northern Ireland to reaching the pinnacle of pop music as the lead singer of INXS, Australian-based Ciaran Gribbin is now finding favour as a keynote conference speaker with an inspirational story to tell.

His journey from a young boy growing up in a bitterly divided society in Northern 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 and one that is now capturing the attention of corporate meeting planners.

With thousands of local pub gigs under his belt but very little to show for it, Ciaran was about to give it all away when a chance meeting led to him writing a Grammy-nominated song for Madonna. Shortly after, a brush with INXS’s Andrew Farriss turned his career around and a tour fronting INXS followed. The year 2015 ended with an Oscar shortlist nomination for the song Hey Baby Doll which was sung by Al Pacino in the critically-acclaimed movie Danny Collins.

Ciaran’s is a unique story about how patience, self-belief, persistence and determination made his musical dreams a reality. His keynote is sprinkled with acoustic songs - including some of INXS’s greatest hits - which makes his presentation even more memorable and intimate.
