Paul McGee

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 bestseller and his book on Self Confidence reached number one in the WH Smith’s business book chart and remained there for a further 24 weeks. He has appeared on BBC Breakfast television and is a regular contributor on BBC Radio.

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 1,000 organisations in 41 countries to date, and from India to Italy and from Bangkok to Brisbane, Paul’s messages have resonated with a global audience.

He has had the privilege of working with one of the world’s top management gurus, the late Dr Stephen Covey, and his work has been endorsed by another of Great British Speakers star talents, the Elite Performance Director of the British Olympic Association, Sir Clive Woodward.

His clients include prominent blue chip organisations, public sector bodies and a leading Premier League football club.

Having worked with some of the worlds top sports people I’m aware how incredibly important confidence and self belief is to individual and team success. That’s why Paul’s book, SUMO is so important in helping people to achieve success in life. Read it, digest it and do what it says!

I’ve absolutely no doubt that your SUMO approach can help build resilience and enhance the quality of people’s lives, in both medical and educational settings. The clarity and simplicity of your explanations are accessible to everyone and I know many patients who would benefit from this approach.

– Dr. Phil Hammond – GP, Journalist & Broadcaster

I saw Paul present at an international conference. He uniquely addresses one of the biggest barriers to personal and business development… our own minds. The SUMO philosophy was a unanimous hit. Very, very powerful stuff!
