Who is Richard McCann?
On a cold and misty morning in October 1975, Richard McCann woke to discover his mother was missing. He was just ﬁve years old. She was the ﬁrst victim of the notorious Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe.
Despite other tragic losses, and a period of dabbling with drugs and prison, Richard decided to turn his life around. He grew to become a motivational speaker and loving family man, with a ﬁlm of his life in development. Today, Richard has delivered over 1,700 presentations around the world, inspiring audiences with his story of overcoming adversity, and sharing his powerful iCan approach.
In 2009 he founded the iCanSpeak Academy, training individuals and teams to enhance their presentation skills and communicate their message authentically and with conﬁdence so they achieve more effective results. See the iCanSpeak Academy for details of upcoming events.
