In this episode, we're "gabbing" about a unique and fun twist on how to create a positive and enhanced work environment with acclaimed speaker, award-winning humorist, and two-time cancer survivor Conor Cunneen.
Conor Cunneen is a happily exiled Irishman who has been working on his Chicago accent for twenty years – with little success! He is an acclaimed speaker, educator and an award-winning humorist who combines wit and wisdom to provide powerful and memorable programs to help you get through the good days and the bad days. Conor's objective is to leave you with a spring in the step, a smile on the face, a beat in the heart AND memorable, implementable ideas to make your unit and patient experience even better. As a two-time cancer survivor, this Irishman says a silent prayer every day for the med-surge professionals who helped him through thyroid and prostate cancer. He is delighted to bring the Gift of GAB (Goals, Attitude, Behavior) to the caring professionals at AMSN 2019. Based in the United States for 18 years, Conor is a very proud recipient of the President's Gold Medal for Volunteer Service for the work he does with job seekers.
