Niall Breslin is a multi award winning author, academic, producer, musician, filmmaker, tv personality, social entrepreneur and former professional rugby player.

One of Ireland’s most sought after public speakers, his ability to communicate with inspiring candidness, authenticity and immersed knowledge has helped pioneer a sea of change in the last 10 years specifically public perception and narrative on mental health and emotional well-being in Ireland. A dynamic, charismatic, humorous and compelling presenter, he has worked closely with government and the EU parliament further influencing the discussion and development of future policy in the area of mental health and education.

An honorary fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, his bestselling and winner of Irish non fiction book of the year “Me and my mate Jeffrey” along with his role as founder and director of the multi award winning innovative advocacy charity ‘A Lust for Life’, have further contributed significantly to his standing as a key figure in the evolving conversation around mental health, leading to the Guardian newspaper referring to Niall as ‘a real mental health hero’ in the area of leadership in this field.

With a degree in cultural sociology and a Masters qualification in Mindfulness based interventions from University College Dublin, Niall has an intrinsic personal ability and unique skillset to practically communicate and develop programmes to help people better navigate a modern world that is moving far too fast for many. When he is not working his “day job” you will find him on stage as the front man, lead singer, guitarist and pianist for the Irish pop rock band The Blizzards.
