Paul McGee is The SUMO Guy (Shut Up Move On) at Great British Speakers. He provides inspiration and entertainment but most importantly offers practical tools you can use immediately to help you both in your professional and personal lives.

Now more than ever resilience speaker Paul feels passionately about SUMO and the difference it can make to people’s lives. He continues to spread the SUMO message through his best-selling books and sold-out presentations to audiences ranging in size from intimate workshops to packed conference halls.

SUMO is the ongoing culmination of over 25 years of work by Paul McGee. His insights and unique and engaging style of delivery have captured the attention of people around the globe and he is now universally recognised as ‘The SUMO Guy’.

SUMO has been used extensively around the world. It equips people with the insights, inspiration and practical tools to achieve better results in life, whilst having more fun in the process.

It’s an acronym that depending on the context can stand for ‘Shut Up, Move On’ or ‘Stop, Understand, Move On’. Interestingly, in Latin, SUMO can mean ‘Choose’ and at the heart of our work, is a desire to help people make wise and better choices – not only in their professional lives, but their personal lives also.
