Glenn Hoddle

English Footballing Legend

One of the most iconic footballer of his era, Glenn Hoddle was one of England’s most talented footballers. Inducted into the National Football Museum Hall of Fame in 2007, Hoddle was recognised for his sublime balance, extraordinary shooting ability and vision during his playing days. A terrific football speaker, Glenn has experienced playing for some of the most revered clubs in the world as well as managing his nation through a World Cup, making him a highly desirable sports speaker on the after dinner speaker circuit.

Joining Tottenham Hotspur as a schoolboy apprentice on 1974, Hoddle made his first team debut aged 17 against Norwich City in 1975. A talented playmaker, Hoddle flourished under the management of Keith Burkinshaw before making his international debut as part of the England U-21 side in 1976 against Wales. Discussing topics such as overcoming adversity and realising ambitions as an after dinner speaker, Glenn is an ideal personality to address both business and social environments alike.

Making his first team debut for England in 1979 in Euro 80 qualifying tie against Bulgaria, Hoddle scored in the match and secured his place as an extremely talented and reliable figure in his national team. Also included in both the 1982 and 1986 World Cups, Glenn showed fundamental leadership skills, helping his team to successful placings in both tournaments. A highly desirable attribute for corporate clients, Glenn can relate his time playing for his nation with the management skills needed within a firm as a football speaker.
