Seán Gallagher is both charismatic and pragmatic and he had attendees hypnotised from start to finish. Seán Gallagher is the only key note speaker I have seen to captivate an audience in this manner and I have witnessed the best of Irish keynote talent over the years. Seán’s no nonsense approach to business ensures his finger is right on the pulse. Feedback from attendees on the day clearly indicated Sean stole the show. Delegates were hugely inspired by this successful yet humble man.” – Tara Wilson-Black, Irish Women in Business.
