In this episode of #TheSpeakerShow, Maria Franzoni interviews Clive Tyldesley

Speaking live to an audience of a couple of hundred delegates in a conference hall can be an intimidating prospect. Clive Tyldesley has spoken live to an audience of more than 20 million television viewers on many different occasions.

Those occasions have included Champions League and England international football matches that have brought the nation to a halt to watch and to listen… (and in the 21st century to also tweet their instant reactions to what they are seeing and hearing).

He is simply one of the most recognisable voices in sports broadcasting… and equally to ‘FIFA’ game players too. He has won the Royal Television Society Sports Commentator of the Year award 4 times!

He has been working in television since 1987… 24 Champions League finals… 7 World Cups… been there, seen it, called it.

His recent semi-autobiographical book provides a fascinating insight into the relationships he has forged with football greats from Clough to Dalglish and Ferguson to Hoddle.

In this fascinating episode, we discuss:

  • Communication
  • Leadership
  • Motivation
  • Broadcasting
  • Engagement
  • Presenting
