Rugby World Cup winner, Dancing on Ice star, and entrepreneur  - Kyran Bracken is one of the UK’s most insightful and engaging after dinner entertainers.

At the age of 13, Kyran earned a rugby scholarship to Stonyhurst School in Lancashire, where his peers were fellow 2003 Rugby World Cup winners Will Greenwood and Iain Balshaw.

Moving on to study Law at Bristol University, Kyran achieved a 2.1 and was offered a place at Bristol Law School. He started work as a trainee solicitor whilst playing rugby for Bristol RFC, from where he was snapped up by the Watford Saracens where he spent two seasons captaining the team.

In 1993 Kyran made his England debut against the All Blacks, and by the end of his career he had won 51 caps. In 2003 Kyran was an integral part of the English world cup winning team. Strong at passing, defending and kicking, his speed on the pitch was unmatched.

He also toured with the British & Irish Lions to South Africa in 1997.

His final England appearance was in the infamous 2003 World Cup game against France.

In 2007 Kyran entered a new realm of sport – this time ice skating! Dancing on Ice showcased the breadth of his physical prowess, and the public adored him. He now owns and runs a touring ice skating show, Kyran’s Ice Party and is involved in many other business enterprises.

Interview with Kyran Bracken


What is motivational speaking about for you?


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.


Can you remember your first speaking engagement?


Yes. This was after dinner when I won my first England cap in 1993….I was awful!


And your last event?


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.


Which event has been your favourite and why?


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.
