Leadership Masterclass: iCan with Richard McCann

About the Facilitator

Richard McCann is the founder of the iCan Academy. Since publishing his first book in 2005, Times No1 Bestseller Just a Boy, which sold almost half a million copies, Richard has delivered over 2500 inspirational talks, and he's spoken as far and wide as Iran, Malaysia, Germany, Italy, Canada, and a few places in-between.



The iCan masterclass has been designed to give you all the tools you need to be able to bounce back, overcome difficult situations, and become masterful in the art of communication and presentation.

The masterclass is split into two sessions—iCan Be Resilient in the morning, and iCan Speak in the afternoon.

iCan Be Resilient

The iCan Be Resilient masterclass will leave you feeling inspired and empowered to deal with any situation. Resilience is all about bouncing back from the negative events that life throws at us. Drawing on his own personal experiences as well as other sources of wisdom, Richard shows how we can shift our perspective to reframe the way we look at life events.


During this masterclass, you will learn various techniques for processing the twists and turns of everyday life, so you can recover from setbacks speedily and effectively.

iCan Speak

The iCan Speak masterclass will give you the skills, the training, and the courage to be able to speak with confidence and clarity to any audience you need to. Incorporating the seven habits of highly engaging speakers and the essential elements of storytelling, this session will ensure you know how to grab the attention of your audience and keep them interested in the duration of a talk.


This is an interactive session, so there will be plenty of opportunities for those who want to step up to get involved. Even if you feel a little shy at the start of the journey, by the time you have completed the iCan Speak masterclass, you will be eager to take to the stage!
