Charlie Nicholas

Incredible goalscorer and football TV pundit

Depending on what era your audience first got into football, they will either know motivational speaker Charlie Nicholas as an incredible Scottish footballer from the 1980s or as an outspoken and highly respected pundit on Sky TV.

Either way, Charlie’s contribution to football is substantial – in his three years as a striker for Celtic (1980-1983), he scored 48 goals in 74 appearances and the next four years at Arsenal saw him play 184 times and net 54 goals.

Leaving Arsenal for Aberdeen in 1987, Nicholas scored another 30 times in 78 matches. Three years later, the motivational speaker was back at Celtic where he stayed for five years, playing 114 games and scoring 37 goals. Throughout his career, including 20 caps for Scotland (he was in the 1986 World Cup squad), Charlie scored an incredible 189 times!

Since becoming a TV pundit, Nicholas has expressed strong opinions on many key issues, including the management of his old club Celtic. As a speaker, Charlie is able to draw on many stories throughout his career to entertain and enthral any audience. Never one to hold back on saying what he thinks, Nicholas makes a superb motivational speaker for any event.
