As a former Premier League football player and expert in elite performance, Paul McVeigh's credibility comes from the unique combination of reaching the pinnacle of elite sport as well as being the first Premier League footballer to qualify with a Master's Degree in Psychology.
He specialises in implementing the psychology required to elevate the performance of leaders and teams from the financial services' industry. He has recently worked with PWC, Grant Thornton, Aviva, Barclays, Deutsche Bank, Nat West, Microsoft and many more.

Paul shares his psychological framework from growing up in war torn Belfast, Ireland alongside the strategies he implemented performing under the intense scrutiny of 75,000 fans across the world.

The insights Paul shared as a Sport Psychologist for Premier League clubs have helped many players compete in, what is considered, the most prestigious and ruthless sports league in the world.
His keynote motivational speaking topics include:
Psychology of Performance
Performance involves numerous, multifaceted principles that can be broken down to measure progress. Many top organisations consistently work on the technical component and yet, the psychological approach is invariably the biggest differential between proposed objectives and actual outcomes. Paul uses his expertise to engage your employees and colleagues to consciously improve their mental performance.
Psychology of Leadership
The latest empirical research is redefining what a leader is, what they do and how they do it. Implementing these five key principles can help shape the leaders of the future; belief, accountability, pillars of change, identity and empathy. However, you can’t get the best out of others until you get the best out of yourself. In this presentation, Paul McVeigh share’s his insights to help your leaders elevate these elite competencies.
Psychology of Teamwork
The highest performing teams on the planet share an ethos that is consistent, tangible and methodical. Understanding what is required from each other is crucial to success. Building upon a tried and tested framework helps each team player engage and flourish to develop them as people and future business leaders. Paul brings his insights from 20-years’ experience in a high performing environment to help unlock your team's potential.
