Lessons Learnt From The Beautiful Game

The 2023/2024 Premier League season is set to be an exhilarating nine months with the top six places being arguably the most contested they have ever been and transfer market prices skyrocketing.

With the Premier League coming to the forefront of the news and social media, not just for footballing reasons, the league is amassing more and more popularity by the day.

There are a growing number of lessons that can be taken away from the world of football as analyses continuously progress to a deeper level. Political, economic and social factors have come into the limelight in recent times, producing many talking points when translated into a footballing context, both on and off the pitch. That being said, I have handpicked my top Conference Speakers and After Dinner Speakers when it comes to dissecting the beautiful game of football and its surrounding topics.

Ben Lyttleton

Ben has spent years in the football industry, helping Premier League and national teams with their penalty strategies and delving into player psychology. He has examined exactly how individuals understand and manage their anxiety to perform at their best under pressure in football and the NBA. Ben now even co-owns a football club in Denmark, proof of his comprehensive knowledge. He looks at the key challenges, behaviours, and lessons for leaders in any sector and with teams of any size, from creative thinking to the advantages of diversity and inclusion.

He now hosts shows on BBC radio and TV while speaking about his long career in and around the football industry. He  sadly experienced racism and prejudice during the 1980s and speaks eloquently about his early years and upbringing. It’s a story that you do not want to miss. Equally at home talking about football, rugby union, music, television and movies – Jason is a fantastic public speaker and perfect for award ceremonies, corporate evenings and conferences.
