Paul Wade

On Application
Australia - NSW
"Wadey" as he is known around the world had a remarkable international career, including the Olympic Games, 2 World Cup campaigns and one of the toughest tasks in world football to "mark Diego Maradona" (probably the best player in the world at that time) in the two legged world cup play off with Argentina.

In a career with over 100 appearances for his country Paul Wade also won two National Soccer League championships and was voted NSL player of the year in 1988.

46 of his 84 first class international matches were as captain of the Socceroos.

His passion for the game carried on after his retirement to both extensive work in the media as an expert TV presenter and in a variety of junior development roles.

Wadey now takes great pride in consulting to SEG to develop the countries leading soccer development programs where he aims to help kids experience the joy of "playing like a socceroo legend"

Paul is a highly entertaining speaker who can also incorporate some very strong business and motivational messages including:

  • Leadership

  • Teamwork

  • Persistence

  • How to win when others say you can't
