Shay McConnon

Top Level Talks That Hit The Bottom Line


Shay McConnon is a psychologist, an author of 18 books and the CEO of McConnon International. With 5 regional offices and over 50 consultants, McConnon International offers global delivery of some unique leadership and culture solutions that engage staff, promote ownership and create collaborative relationships.

He is the creator of An Even Better Place to Work  an on-line, self-managed solution that prevents people problems and encourages the “What am I going to do” not the “What is management going to do” mindset. This tool is being used by Siemens, Emirates, NHS, Environment Agency and other leading organisations with French, German, Dutch and Arabic translations. It was a finalist in the recent Employee Engagement Awards run by the Association of Business Psychologists.

Because of his ground breaking work on Engagement, he has been asked to join the employee engagement guru group in the UK, led by David MacLeod.

Shay is a regular speaker at conferences, a Fellow of the Professional Speakers Association and has recently been awarded top speaker by the Academy of Chief Executives and best new speaker by Vistage (the world’s largest organisation for chief executives).

He is a member of the Magic Circle and he uses magic to illustrate his key messages in a fun and memorable way.

One of the most motivational, educational and moving keynote addresses we have ever heard. It was also the funniest by far.

If you make dull subjects sound that interesting, just imagine what you could do with topics everybody likes. You could indeed be the Bill Connolly of the business world.

Shay, a million thanks for your contribution to the conference. I was impressed and I am a cynical old bugger who has seen most things…I truly enjoyed it.
