Footballer, Psychologist & Author
Paul McVeigh is a Premier League football player and an expert in elite performance. Paul’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.
Paul 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, Cisco, Microsoft and many more.
These lessons are even more applicable today in our remote and virtual workplaces in order to empower individuals to understand that our thinking unlocks the required behaviours that are necessary for elite performance.
