Talking Talent: Paul McGee


Leading speakers

Paul McGee is one of the UK's leading speakers on the subject of change, workplace relationships and motivation. His provocatively titled book SUMO (Shut Up, Move On) became an instant best seller and his book on Self Confidence reached number one in the WHSmith's business book chart and remained there for a further 24 weeks. He has appeared on BBC Breakfast television and is a regular contributor to Radio 5live. Building on his background in psychology, Paul's aim is to deliver a practical, relevant message that can make an immediate impact on people's professional and personal lives. His approach is considered both inspirational and humorous as he seeks to deliver a memorable experience that equips people with insights and ideas to increase their personal effectiveness and impact. He's spoken for over 750 organisations in 35 countries to date, and from Todmorden to Tehran and from Bradford to Brisbane, Paul's messages have resonated with a global audience. His work has been endorsed by the Elite Performance Director of the British Olympic Association, Sir Clive Woodward and his clients include blue chip organisations, public sector bodies and a leading Premiership football club.
