During the COVID-19 pandemic, Paul attended many virtual events, booked as an exciting guest speaker. Read the feedback he has received below.

"Paul was really good and we had a good mix of funny stories and his own troubles he has gone through with a really good balance and questions from a lot of the audience. Please pass on my huge thanks to Paul. I have seen him before and genuinely think he is a great guy both in terms of his playing career (being an Arsenal fan), his tv work but also his story in terms of the honesty he shows with his own demons. We could have talked for hours to be honest and I’m sure we would get him back again for an in-person event when restrictions are lifted, we enjoyed his presence that much." - Craig, DUAL Oliva


Paul is regularly booked to engage audiences at in-person events, read his latest feedback below.

"He was a great guest- really engaged with the players and they had a great time" - Harriet, Communications Officer, The Salvation Army 

"Paul Merson was a great guest speaker for our event. He had loads of great stories from his career and had the audience laughing throughout. He also stuck around at the end to answer questions and take photos with fans." - James, Aleteryx

“The event was a success and Paul was very good with no issues. All was on time and Paul was happy to stay slightly later to finish off the photos etc. Everything from yourself was fine also.” - Jonny Walker, Legacy Leisure
