Bernard Jackman

Bernard Jackman is a son of a cattle dealer from Coolkenno on the Wicklow/Carlow border who attended Newbridge College, DCU and UCD. Bernard is a former pro Rugby player who played for Connacht, Leinster, Sale Sharks and Ireland. He has been head coach in FC Grenoble, France and at the Dragons in Wales. He is one of only a small number of Irish rugby players to have won a Six Nations, European Cup, Challenge Cup and a Magners League Medal. Bernard released his autobiography Blue Blood in 2011 and is now a columnist with the Sunday Independent, commentator and analyst with RTE and has two weekly podcasts with the 42 and RTE.
Bernards story of success and failure – of bouncing back makes him and engaging and entertaining speaker who can talk with authority, ease and humour about what success looks like and how to take responsibility for and create your own success.
Equally at home as an MC, keynote speaker or panelist. Bernards work in business and sport makes his insights as a corporate speaker and expert on Leadership and how to create a High Performance Culture, all the more compelling.
