Sir Richard Branson — no slouch himself on the public-speaking front — has described Paul as “the king of keynotes”. Eivind Landsverk, programme director of Norwegian commercial channel TVNorge, said this after one of Paul’s leadership keynotes: “With his motivating speech about pitching and communication, Paul has inspired and developed our team and our skills in a positive and enjoyable way. This is what TVN is all about and Paul’s visit reminded us all of how important this is in everyday work.”

For Paul himself, it’s all about communication and connection. He puts it like this: “My years of experience in the entertainment, music and business worlds have taught me how to engage with any audience in a way that makes them want to listen. And if we can have a laugh along the way, they’ll be talking about it for months, even years to come.” As an inspiring, memorable keynote speaker, Paul has what it takes to make your event an outstanding success.
