Paul McGee - The SUMO Guy
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 900 organisations in 36 countries to date, and from Todmorden to Tehran and from Bradford 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 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 Premiership football club.
In this interactive and engaging session, Paul McGee will draw upon 25 years of working with organisations throughout the world. His focus will be on how we can develop the most effective mind-set to deal with the relentless change that we are all facing and will continue to face. He will go beyond the platitudes of positivity and provide practical strategies you can apply immediately in both your professional and personal lives. Be prepared to be entertained and inspired but also to leave with practical tools and insights to help you survive and thrive.
