Paul is a passionate believer in the redemptive power of communication and his aim is to give you the skills to win and the confidence to dare to. He has worked with the leaders and sales teams of organisations such as ARM, Google, the BBC, the Financial Times, RBS and JP Morgan. In all cases, he works with the executives and top client facing teams to create that narrow margin, that edge that makes the difference in an increasingly competitive world.

Paul’s early career as a musician and comedian – he led the chart-topping Morris Minor & The Majors and partnered Ainsley Harriott in the Calypso Twins – took him on a journey from the Comedy Store, via Top Of The Pops, to the London Palladium and Carnegie Hall. However, tiring of life on the road and with a college background in psychology, he sought out the most cutting-edge areas of transformational psychology, studying for several years to become a Society of NLP Master Trainer and gaining a Diploma in coaching. He then spent two years training doctors at Guys, King’s and St. Thomas’s (Europe’s largest teaching hospital) in the art and science of communication.
Paul Boross is also founder and managing director of training company BIG SKY and music-production studios MB Productions.
