Kell Ryan

Michael ‘Kell’ Ryan may be the retired co-founder and owner of Ryanair – Europe’s biggest low-cost airline – but as a motivational speaker he continues to enthral and inspire audiences with his tales from the world of aviation and business in general.

Associated with the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Florida, USA, for many years (he is currently on the Industrial Advisory Board), Kell started the airline with his brother with the aim of offering an alternative to expensive flights. The ‘no frills’ airline literally took off and has gone from employing 50 workers to employing 2,300. At the same time, Ryanair has gone from carrying 5,000 passengers to nearly 25 million.

Before creating Ryanair, Kell was with the Irish airline Aer Lingus for nearly a quarter of a century. The motivational speaker loves the aviation industry with a visible and infectious passion and his presentations at conferences and other events are littered with fascinating anecdotes, experiences and insights based on unrivalled knowledge of the sector.

Kell, whose other passion is improving the quality of higher education around the world, has particular expertise in sales, marketing, communications, training and customer services.
