A professional speaker in Personal Development, Gerry Duffy has particular expertise in the areas of Goal Motivation, Sales, Leadership and How to Speak Better. He has a Masters Degree in Business Practice and has written three books including ͚THE GOAL GETTER- 35 Different Ways to Reach Your Goals (2015).
What is particularly interesting is that at one time in his life, public speaking was Gerry Duffys greatest fear. Back in 2005 he had to seek the help of a hypnotist to help him address an audience of just four people. Since he has overcome it, he has been hired by over 800 companies and organisations and has addressed audiences of up to 4,000 people. He has spoken all over Ireland, the UK, Mainland Europe and the United States and his clients includes Facebook, Google, Bank of America, British Gas, Novartis Pharmaceuticals and Coca Cola.
"Gerry spoke to our group for three hours on Goal Setting, where he had the audience sitting in the palm of his hand." Mairead Griffin Grunenthal Pharma
"I can honestly say Gerry Duffy is the best motivational speaker I have ever heard". Eithne Boyhan, Lundbeck Ireland
