John won two first division medals in 1981 & 1985 before moving on to after dinner speaking. John has become one of the most popular speakers on the circuit and has spoken at prestigious events including the SPFA Player of the Year awards and the Scottish Sports Writers awards.

Paul, a hugely experienced after dinner speaker has been on the circuit since 1998 and started speaking at the age of 17. Paul's talents include excellent impersonations of all the big personalities from the national game along with excellent and witty stories. Paul has regularly featured in programmes such as the Hogmanay hit 'Only An Excuse' as well as Tam Cowan's & Stuart Cosgrove's 'Off the Ball'.

Speaking at a number of high profile events including Mark Hateley's & Neil Lennon's testimonial, Paul is without a doubt one of the best after dinner speakers around.
