Should you be looking for a guest speaker for your corporate event that boasts both an incredible legacy and has experienced the pressures and rewards of the captain’s armband, MN2S represents a selection of great choices.

Kevin Keegan, OBE is an international footballing legend and has experienced great success first as a player, then as captain and finally as a manager, working with teams such as Liverpool, Hamburg and Newcastle.

Ledley King is synonymous with the successes of the North London team, Tottenham Hotspur, with whom he played for 14 years. King played as a central defender, later serving as captain, and has been consistently referred to as one of the best players for the club. King’s career was cut short due to persistent severe knee injuries, but not before he managed to lead Tottenham to their first league win over rivals Chelsea since 1990in 2007, and again in 2008 with a victory that saw them win the League Cup final, a huge honour for both King and the team.

David Seaman, MBE is a former English goalkeeper who has played for many years for Premier League top dogs Arsenal as well as the national team. Although known for his immense skill between the sticks, Seaman was unexpectedly called upon to take on the role of captain following the injury of Patrick Vieira during the 2003 Cup Final. Seaman led the team to victory, his eighth trophy win with Arsenal and ending his career with the club on a brilliant high.
