Paul Viner has been a busy man. After some micro-celebrity as the Chief Financal Officer for Tottenham Hotspur FC, something he describes as an ‘unusual job’, Paul entered the world of restaurants, where he successfully helped to guide Giraffe Restaurants through expansion and eventual sale to Tesco, which he oversaw. Swapping giraffes for sushi, he then stepped into the CEO hot seat at Feng Sushi, whilst cultivating his own consulting and mentoring business called Intelligent Goat. The name was coined, he admits, whilst severely jet lagged after a trip to Chicago. Paul imparts some great wisdom in this wide ranging interview. He compares and contrasts the different world of football and food and the valuable lessons he has learned along the way. Paul speaks with great passion about the importance of having a plan and remembering to enjoy every minute. Some fantastic pearls of wisdom for life and business here for all to enjoy.

Smash The Box is a personal development business. Everything I do is with the aim of inspiring you to find your purpose so you can make your mark on the world. One way I do this is by sharing people’s stories. Inspiring stories that the world needs to hear. Stories of breakthroughs, of adversity overcome, of achievements, successes, of setbacks and turnarounds, of realisations and lightbulb moments. This audio experience is a natural and perfect complement to the existing services of Life Coaching, Leadership Coaching, Breakthrough Workshops and Inspirational Talks – all of which forms something quite unique and special. If you are looking to find your purpose in life, in work, or both, then don’t just think outside the box. It’s time to Smash The Box!
