Richard McCann Biography

A week before his 6th birthday, Richard McCann’s mother was brutally murdered by The Yorkshire Ripper. Years of violence, abuse and neglect followed, and just before he turned inevitably and irrevocably to serious crime, Richard McCann embraced the concept of forgiveness and turned his life around. Now a motivational speaker who inspires businesses to be strong and look to the future, Richard exemplifies courage and triumph over adversity.

When Richard joined the army he thought the discipline and physical demands would help him along the path of recovery and strengthen his resolve to lead a ‘normal’ life. But when he was shown a picture of his mother’s killer in a magazine, he exploded. Damaging property and threatening his colleagues, he was kicked out of the army on psychological grounds and turned to drugs, and eventually found himself in prison.

A week before his 6th birthday, Richard McCann’s mother was brutally murdered by The Yorkshire Ripper. Years of violence, abuse and neglect followed, and just before he turned inevitably and irrevocably to serious crime, Richard McCann embraced the concept of forgiveness and turned his life around. Now a motivational speaker who inspires businesses to be strong and look to the future, Richard exemplifies courage and triumph over adversity.

When Richard joined the army he thought the discipline and physical demands would help him along the path of recovery and strengthen his resolve to lead a ‘normal’ life. But when he was shown a picture of his mother’s killer in a magazine, he exploded. Damaging property and threatening his colleagues, he was kicked out of the army on psychological grounds and turned to drugs, and eventually found himself in prison.

Just as his home was about to be repossessed in 1997, Richard formed a suicide pact with his elder sister. At rock bottom, Richard had to somehow find the courage and tenacity to grapple his way up from the verge and turn his life around.

When he published Just A Boy, Richard did not expect to sell almost 400,000 copies. The book has been translated around the world, and Richard has made it his mission to help victims, as well as businesses to overcome their own challenges.
