About the Irishman
Conor Cunneen is an Irishman happily exiled in Chicago where he says the natives are friendly, and he has been force fed more corned beef and green beer than he ever had in Ireland!
Conor is a two-time cancer survivor (thyroid and prostate) who who has nurses and healthcare professionals laughing and learning from Denver to Dublin. (Ohio and Ireland.) “Having had a thyroidectomy and a prostatectomy, I now have an Irish condition known as ‘there is not much left-o-me.’ ”

TESTIMONIALS for your Speaker for Nurses Week: Motivational Humorist and Educator Conor Cunneen
” Fantastic speaker on the Gift of GAB (Goals, Attitude, Behavior) — much appreciated and taken to heart to be used when times can be difficult at home and at work. Thank you. I wish more of our staff nurses could experience it. We will have to take the message back.” Edward Hospital

“Conor we can’t thank you enough for speaking at our Symposium. Everyone loved your presentation- how could they not!!!
As nurses we need a little laughter with our Symposium’s. Our lives are too serious. YOU ARE A GREAT OPENER!!!
We always try to add humor whenever we can…..even at work. We try to keep things light if possible, especially when it’s busy.
After all, what do we want our attitudes to be…..I heard that somewhere.
We can’t thank you enough for providing the humor that we need.
“Conor was utterly charming, funny and engaging — but, also drove home a real “life lesson” in just 15 short minutes as he warmed up the crowd before our live auction. I know that our attendees, including FHN staff, enjoyed mingling and visiting with him, too. Conor excels at employee motivation.” FHN Freeport

Mr. Conor Cunneen presented the Gift of GAB and Dancing on Mushrooms, at United Health Services 22nd Annual Oncology Teaching Day. He was without a doubt very entertaining, extremely thought provoking, and subtle but yet direct in moving the attendees to look at their behaviors, and their attitude at work, home and in their daily relationships.
He was EXCELLENT and received rave reviews- from nurses mind you, who are often very stingy with their compliments! I would recommend him very, very highly for your corporate or healthcare event.
Joy and hope, camaraderie and faith, and triumph over adversity was in “Living in Full Bloom” at Anne Arundel Medical Center’s Geaton and Jo Ann DeCesaris Cancer Institute’s Cancer Survivors Day celebration on June 5, 2011. With over 400 cancer survivors, their supporters and medical professionals in the audience, “laughter was the best medicine”. Conor Cunneen through the Gift of GAB, Irish wit, wisdom as a two time cancer survivor and as a gifted inspirational speaker, had them laughing for joy and longing for more.
We highly recommend Conor to inspire, delight, educate and entertain your organization regardless of the type of audience.
“Mr. Cunneen should definitely come back. If there was a presentation to put in mandatory education — this is it.” Edward Hospital
