Kenneth Egan’s Motivational Talk

‘I have a grant application deadline in November, it’s a complicated process and difficult to package the story properly. I have spent days trying to get material together. Listening to Kenneth speaking about how he focused on getting the next point in the round was inspiring. It made me think of how to get the proposal together one step at a time.’.​

Prof. Edmond Magner

Faculty of Science and Engineering, University of Limerick

‘I enjoyed Kenneth’s talk thoroughly; I was glued to every word. So much so that when he finished, I wanted to hear more. Kenneth was very engaging with the audience, and you could feel the interest the audience had in Kenneth’s journey. The questions and answers session could have gone on forever so leave enough time for a Q&A session. I felt this talk was such a motivational talk and one that everyone should hear. Thank you, Kenneth,”’

Denise Roche

Department of Psychology, University of Limerick

‘Engaging from start to finish, Kenneth spoke with refreshing honesty and candor. Kenneth speaks with compassion and in a way that would resonate with a wide ranging and diverse audience. He provided fantastic nuggets of wisdom intertwined with humour and raw honesty. Humble and approachable, Kenneth was a delight to listen too, left everyone wanting more.’

Thomas O Shaughnessy

Student Affairs Division, University of Limerick

‘Kenneth’s talk to UL staff was an honest and refreshing account of his personal achievements and his understanding of how these came about for him. In a light-hearted and engaging manner, he offered ample evidence of what it means to be seen and accepted for what you are, and how this can bring about success. It also clearly amplified the need for support particularly in times of stress and anguish. Perhaps Kenneth’s greatest attribute during the talk was to be honest, without drama, about his life lessons. His integrity and authenticity spoke as loud as his motivating words – more like this!

Dr Patrick Ryan (Chartered Clin.Psych., FPsSI)

Associate Vice President Student Engagement
