Michael Duberry is a former professional footballer and keynote speaker on dealing with change, elite performance, and raising your game

There are very few that get the opportunity to play in the English Premier League. In fact, it is just 0.01% that make it to the upper echelon of English football. The average length of a professional footballer’s career is 8 years. Michaels exceeded that by 12 years!

Michael Duberry made a staggering 500 appearances for clubs and is honoured to include Chelsea, Leeds United, Stoke City, and Reading in that list. Cristiano Ronaldo, Gianfranco Zola, Ruud Gullit, and Thierry Henry are just some of the world-renowned footballers Michael frequently shared the pitch with. Among his many professional accolades, Michael is proud to include: English League Cup winner, European Cup winner, and the European Super Cup.

Inevitably older age crept up on Michael as well as injuries, forcing retirement. That didn’t temper his drive and determination and he turned his attentions to media and keynote speaking with a focus on elite performance.

Michael didn’t stop there, gaining professional qualifications in executive coaching, enhancing his keynote speaking and complementing workshops as well as more in-depth programmes.

From his time as an elite footballer Michael has transferred his highly valuable knowledge and experience into powerful and exceptionally motivating keynote sessions: Dealing with Change, Elite Performance, Raising Your Game.
