Background and Career
Born in Ireland, Kyran could have worn the green of the Emerald isle, but as a baby moved to Liverpool and went on to win the Rugby World Cup with the English rose on his chest in 2003.
On the pitch, Kyran could pass accurately off both hands, was a strong defender, kicked well and always posed an attacking threat with great speed from a standing start.
Kyran made his England debut against the All Blacks in 1993. Throughout his career he fiercely contested the scrum half jersey with Matt Dawson, and then Austin Healey. However, during this highly competitive period for English quality international number nines and over a 10 year period, Kyran won 51 caps. His final England appearance came in the ’03 World Cup against France.
Qualified in law from Bristol University, when the game went professional he transferred from Bristol RFC to Saracens in 1996. A highly respected and popular player for both his club and for his country, he captained England on three occasions as well as leading Saracens for two seasons. He also toured with the British & Irish Lions to South Africa in 1997.Kyran retired from the game at the close of the 2005/06 season, but remains close to the game. He has previously coached at Leicester Tigers, and currently is contracted to coach/mentor the scrum halves at Premiership Champions, Harlequins.
An intelligent guy and a very talented speaker, he is regularly called upon to MC events and give business speeches. He’s insightful, has the ability to educate, engage and entertain an audience and is always great fun to be around.
Popular with the media, he appears frequently on the BBC and Sky Sports TV amongst other channels, in addition to appearing on the pages of publications such as Hello! & Ok!, Men’s Health and GQ.
In 2007 viewers of ITV’s Dancing on Ice enjoyed Kyran’s skating prowess as did the judges. He endeared himself to the public and presented himself in a fantastic light winning the show, in addition to the Champion of Champions edition.
Kyran is entrepreneurial and is not afraid of taking risks. He has an impressive property portfolio that spans North London, Jersey, Ireland and South Africa and he now owns and runs a touring ice skating show, Kyran’s Ice Party as well as having other business interests.
Kyran lives in North London with his wife Victoria and their three boys.

Kyran delivered a very memorable after lunch talk. He was confident on stage, very entertaining and hit all the right buttons. He was equally engaging when he joined the other guests for the Q&A section.
Kyran was charming, professional and so easy going. A real dream to work with and the ideal host for the audience. We will definitely be considering Kyran for future events.
Kyran delivered just what we wanted. He put the panel at ease and probed them well to dig out the stories that our guests wanted to hear. He was professional and entertaining. A nice guy and easy to work with.
We often use Kyran to speak or MC. Thanks to his world cup winning status and highly successful England career he’s a player that our guests enjoying mingling with. But not only is he a star player, he’s a strong speaker who knows how to entertain and engage with the guests. A top man.
Kyran is a fantastic speaker - we booked him for this event as we had previously used him for an event in 2010. Although our audience size was a lot smaller than we had originally thought, Kyran did a fantastic job of speaking to a much smaller group, keeping everyone engaged and making everyone laugh. Kyran does a really good job of talking about his own experiences and informing the audience how they can apply the same thinking to their own career - even if that career is completely different from his own. I would definitely book Kyran for another event!

Speakers Corner: And your last event?
Kyran Bracken: The Institute for Directors. I delivered a 30 minute after lunch talk, and then joined John Barnes and Jonah Lomu in a Q&A panel session.
Speakers Corner: Which event has been your favourite and why?
Kyran Bracken: Recently I’d say the IoD appearance, as I was very well received by a crowd that have heard a whole variety of speakers in the past.
Speakers Corner: What is motivational speaking about for you?
Kyran Bracken: It all depends on the brief, what I deliver, and what I share with the audience. But essentially I enjoy taking the audience on my journey of becoming the best, in a very competitive and challenging environment. Bouncing back from personal and collective disappointments, and re-setting goals once success has been achieved. I highlight the required traits both as an individual and as a team-member of world class performance setup to be successful.
