Paul McVeigh

Former Tottenham Hotspur & Norwich Player

What can the business world learn from a stupid footballer? The answer is a hell of a lot! Paul McVeigh, football’s No. 1 keynote speaker, takes the many lessons he learnt from his 16 years at the top of his game as a Premier League footballer for Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City and translates these into strategies for success for organisations from all different walks of business life.

How do you reach the pinnacle of one of the most ruthless industries in the world? Having faced some of the world’s best footballers from the last decade, the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, Paul is now passing on his knowledge and passion to help individuals, and companies as a whole, become the best in their field too.

As an engaging and dynamic keynote speaker, Paul describes how he went from a young boy from the violent streets of troubled Belfast to competing at the highest level with, and against, some of the most well known players in the world today.

What sets Paul’s keynote speeches apart? It is his ability to deliver tangible, realistic and effective solutions that can be directly applied to real life business situations. Since retiring from football, Paul has seamlessly made the transition from professional athlete to keynote speaker alongside his regular spot as a sports presenter for Sky SportsTalkSPORT and BT Sport.

Is Paul’s success only confined to the footballing world? No because if all that isn’t enough he’s also a published author and owner of ThinkPRO, the Mental Performance company that is working with professional football clubs in the Premier League and Championship.
