Clients & Testimonials
Paul Boross is a very highly regarded performer who has a great reputation amongst his peers and public alike in Britain. I worked with him regularly at the London Comedy Store, and other established venues, in the mid eighties and found him to be a hugely talented and very popular performer. He has, without doubt, reached the very top of his profession.
Mike Myers, Actor/Comedian/Producer (Shrek, Austin Powers, Wayne’s World)
Paul is a fantastic pitch doctor, he has the ability to synthesise and communicate the essence of a good pitch in a really clear, memorable way, obtaining excellent results. The Pitching Bible is great, as it brings Paul's talent to new heights, enabling him to reach and help a wider audience through these seven secrets.
Laurine Garaude, Director of TV Division - MIPTV, MIPCOM at Reed MIDEM
I've had great pleasure in having Paul visit TVNorge – it was inspiring, motivating and fun.
It was a great experience for our programming department, they fully enjoyed the session and with Paul’s motivating speech about pitching and communication, he has inspired and developed our team and our skills in a positive and enjoyable way. This is what TVN is all about and Paul’s visit reminded us all of how important this is in everyday work.
Paul's book does a wonderful job of capturing that wisdom for anyone to share. Get yourself a copy now - you'll wish you had read it years ago!

I must say "Thank you for your mentoring us" first of all. We won the first prize at MIPTV Content 360 due to your valuable advice. During the 30 minutes you let us know what to focus and how to pitch. You even gave us a good idea of motto 'Fun for viewers, make profit for producers' I repeated it over and over until I spoke it instinctively. And it helped!
Harry D. Lee, TELSTON

I have attended several training courses run by The Pitch Doctor at Google. Paul is passionate about his subject and his enthusiasm is contagious. He is very knowledgeable about presentation skills, time management, negotiation and NLP, he demonstrates a genuine interest in people and he is more than willing to provide ongoing advice and guidance.
Debbie O'Sullivan, senior industry manager, Google
Paul is a veritable master of all trades. But it is in his incarnation as motivational trainer that has left a lasting impression on me. He is able to connect to everyone in a room within seconds. Just watching him win over a group of people through his charisma is a joy. In an industry where every meeting counts, Paul provides an invaluable service.
Steve Blame, freelance writer, format developer and former MTV news editor and presenter
The Pitch Doctor has tremendously good networking skills and a natural creative instinct. He sees potential where others don't. His professional skills and his amicable personality make him an inspirational coach and motivational speaker.
Sue Rider, owner, Sue Rider Management
Having known The Pitch Doctor for over 15 years and had the pleasure of working with him frequently, I can attest to his clarity of vision and unique talent for communication. And he can do it all, from motivational speaking to keynote presentations, from one-to-one coaching to group training, from stand-up comedy to music and performance. If he weren't such a nice guy, he'd be scary.
David Rose, former creative director, Walt Disney International Television, channel editor, Nickelodeon, and producer of Mrs Henderson Presents

The day with Paul Boross was a fantastic experience. He is an amazing performer and his session was a great combination of practice and theory. What he teaches can be used by anybody, in any area of life.
2009 Entertainment Master Class participant
The thing about The Pitch Doctor's training is that it works. He does exactly what he says on the tin, which is to teach you how to win business and keep on winning it. His technique is based on solid psychology and communications skills. It's not quite magic - but your results will be.
Ian Haworth, chairman and global creative officer, WWAVRC Rapp Collins
We have used The Pitch Doctor to help our senior team to hold an audience during big presentations. His coaching is always delivered in a professional, pleasant and enjoyable manner. But more importantly, it has been directly responsible for us winning new business. I would be happy to recommend him.
Gavin Wheeler, joint managing director, WDMP Advertising
The Pitch Doctor has the unique ability to turn a mundane business pitch into a work of art. If you want to win a contract, he's your man.
Rupert Ashe, managing director, Video Jug and owner, Wall House Consulting
The Pitch Doctor does 'entertrainment' better than anybody in the business. He understands that amused and engaged people gain knowledge faster, retain it longer and apply it more effectively than uninspired people. His psychology of sales training session was a huge hit with our commercial team. Everybody left feeling motivated and encouraged. And the result? More business.
Lindsay Duthie, head of development, ETV
The Pitch Doctor is to communication what Delia is to cookery. He gives you the confidence, technique and psychological tools to perform not only to the best of your ability, but way beyond it. Do yourself a favour and call him today.
Ainsley Harriott, TV presenter and celebrity chef
The Pitch Doctor is one of the good guys. He understands how to forge relationships and make them count, so that everybody feels they are getting something special from the experience. Over the years, I've tapped into Paul's expertise to help us to improve our performance on the sales and communications front. It's always seemed obvious to me that if you want the best results, you hire the best.
Paul Heaney, managing director, Cineflix International
The Pitch Doctor has vast media experience and never fail to get his message across to his audience in the most entertaining and motivational fashion. I cannot recommend Paul Boross highly enough as a speaker and trainer. He's the communication expert's expert.
Jon Briggs, owner, Excellent Voice Company and voice of BBC TV's The Weakest Link
I was sceptical about The Pitch Doctor to begin with. But I knew our commercial team needed help and we'd tried all the obvious things. So we called in Paul - and we estimate that we've had a 75% increase in our pitch rate as a result. Let's just say I'm now a believer.
Les Hughes, managing partner, STEEL
Paul Boross performs an amazing kind of mind magic that is more sleight-of-mouth than sleight-of-hand. He changes people's lives for the better with his extraordinary psychological communication skills. That to me is real magic.

Paul Boross and Garner Thomson take time-management techniques they would normally use with sports stars and captains of industry and turn them on ordinary, shambolic people — with dramatic and encouraging results.
Executives who have encountered Paul Boross and Garner Thomson as personal advisors can see how their technique translates to TV. Speed Up Slow Down (BBC2) will show them applying to real life what Boross describes as 'time and emotion studies'.

Tough talking time masters — the best in the business.
The battery of tricks and insights that Boross and Thomson use can be almost spooky. In one programme, they coach a woman to double her reading speed in just 20 minutes — so quick that the director was worried that the viewers wouldn't believe it.
Speed Up Slow Down is the latest reality show for our time-poor generation and, barely halfway through its six-week run, it is already a huge hit with BBC2 viewers.
The Daily Express
Paul Boross and Garner Thomson are two high-flying consultants who have signed up as BBC2's latest presenting double act. They bridle at being called mere life coaches, dubbing themselves 'personal performance strategists' — though 'time lords' would be more apt.
Paul Boross and Garner Thomson normally work with high-profile figures, but here they start a new series by rescuing hapless single mother Dawn from her domestic swamp.
After spending more than a decade advising big US sports stars and Hollywood celebrities on how to streamline their lives, Paul Boross and Garner Thomson are now hoping to change the habits of the great British public.
The Daily Express
Jaw-droppingly simple but fabulously effective.
At MIP TV, it’s always good to kick off with a bit of motivational speak before you hit the floor, so Ochre started with @PaulBoross's 'The Pitch Doctor' presentation. He quickly shook away any of our nervous twitches and put a smile on our faces. Paul, who has worked for media giants like Google, knew exactly how to get us going and reminded us "it's all about the rapport" and with 1000s of content producers looking for an in and an 'Elevator Pitch', Paul is quite right. Lucky Ochre TV are a bubbly bunch we quickly hit the floor and made a few new friends.
