Former professional footballer, Shaun Wright-Phillips, boasts an incredibly success on pitch, and onstage, career. As a sports speaker, he takes his audience on a journey through his career, from humble beginnings with Nottingham Forest to competing internationally with England's football team. Infused throughout his speeches, Shaun provides expert analysis of the sports' pinnacle games and an insight into high performance teams. From Chelsea to Queens Park Rangers, he has thrived with countless popular teams, making Shaun instantly recognisable for audiences.
As a winger, Shaun has been a key figure in several elite football teams, including as part of England's senior international team. He made his global debut in 2004, when he scored a winning goal for England against Ukraine; BBC Sport described Shaun's performance as a "crowning a solo run with a stunning finish". From there, he was part of England's 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifying team, and was later named Man of the Match against Germany in 2007. Shaun continued to prove his worth, scoring goals against Israel in a UEFA Euro 2008 qualifier among other international successes.
Upon joining Manchester City aged 17, Shaun's career started with a bang after he made his first-team debut against Burnley. He later made his league debut, where he scored the winning goal for Manchester City. Moving to a wing-backer, Shaun earned a reputation for his formidable attacking style coupled with his steely defensive position. In recognition of his influence, he was named Manchester City's Young Player of the Year, four years in a row. Including Chelsea and Phoenix Rising Football Club, Shaun's after dinner speeches provide audiences with a behind the scenes view into their favourite football teams.
While competing with Manchester City, Shaun suffered racial abuse from the media and stadium supporters alike. Refusing to be defeated, he focused all of his attention onto the pitch, proving to those critiquing him based on race that they would never knock him down. In Shaun's words; "I just let the football do the talking". When booked for events, he discusses the highs and lows of football, including how he overcame racism within sport though mental strength and resilience. Audiences are inspired by Shaun, as his story leaves a life-changing impression for all those in attendance of his speeches.
