Big Ian Donaghy - our Master of Ceremonies
Speaker, writer, filmmaker, Big Ian is experienced in addressing and hosting conferences across the UK and Europe. He speaks with an infectious enthusiasm that is simultaneously entertaining and thought-provoking making audiences laugh and cry in equal measure.
Big Ian. The name fits him like a supersize glove. Ian Donaghy, all 6ft 2ins of him, has big ideas, huge energy and a massive Geordie heart.
Inundated with work in hospitals, clinical commissioning groups and GP surgeries, in 2012 he set up his own company, Training for Carers (now morphed into bigian.co.uk – because everyone knows him simply as Big Ian). He also became a regular on the speaking circuit, lauded for his infectious enthusiasm and thought-provoking delivery.
When Ian contacted us and said, let me look after your day for you, how could we possibly refuse?!
