Richard McCann is a Sunday Times No1 Bestselling author.  His first book, ‘Just a Boy’, has sold close to ½ million copies and has been translated around the world.  He has been the subject of two BBC documentaries about his extraordinary life story.   Brought up on the ‘At Risk’ register until his mother died tragically when he was aged five, Richard then went on a downward spiral.  Foster homes, children's home and then a violent upbringing by his estranged father took away any self esteem that he had.  He left school with no qualifications and was kicked out of the army for psychological reasons before he turned to drugs to ease his depression.  After making some serious mistakes, Richard hit rock bottom where he considered taking his life.  It was at this point that he found the gut wrenching determination to turn his life around and fight for a better future.  That turn around has been remarkable.  Now married with a family of his own, three books about his life being published, and a much sought after inspirational speaker.  His presentation centres on the way in which he has turned, what can only be described as insurmountable odds, to his favour and has shaped a more positive life for himself.  It’s one that most people don’t forget in a hurry.
