I invited Paul to give a motivational talk to our GAA football club in London. Paul spoke to our men's and ladies teams on the importance of never giving up and always maintaining a positive attitude throughout adversity to enable you to achieve your goals. The talk had a profound effect on everybody who attended. I would highly recommend Paul to any club or organisation.

Charlotte Murray

Manager at Republic of Fitness

Paul not only has an inspiring and thought provoking story to tell but has a magical way of telling it filling you with hope and belief. Paul doesn't look for sympathy or even empathy for his story, he merely demands you to empower yourself to achieve all you dare to dream.

I dare you to walk away from Paul's presentation and not feel invincible and feel like you can achieve anything.

Paul met with both myself and my senior management team in the summer and told his story about his journey from severe illness to inspirational and life changing recovery. Paul is an inspirational speaker, one for anyone team building and looking to set priorities and then you'll get a big dose of motivation to take life by the throat. Paul is an outstanding human with a fierce love for life and a desire to fight to live it. Having overcome some serious adversity he is an amazing speaker and will be one to watch and to book should you be looking for someone to come and powerfully motivate your group into action.
