The countdown to the Qatar 2022 World Cup has begun, and at Smart Speakers we are already feeling the passion of a new World Cup. Undoubtedly, it will be a mass phenomenon that in this edition will be more global than ever.


On the occasion of this world football festival, we will take a closer look at the motivational significance of this huge mass event. Besides the fact that part of our team - collaborators and speakers - have participated in other editions of the FIFA World Cup, and have undoubtedly marked their lives.

Winning the World Cup is the ultimate success for any football player, team or national team, being the initial and fundamental motivation, as well as the destiny and the greatest recognition in their career.

We are honoured to introduce you to the 5 most sought after football speakers, all of them examples of motivation, leadership, teamwork, perseverance and success. Moreover, for our pride and quality of your event, they are members of the Smart Speakers network.



Qatar World Cup 2022: a mass phenomenon more global than ever before


The FIFA World Cup is one of the most important sporting and economic events in the world, with a tradition that is about to turn a century old and is a sign of the global vision of the planet. It is a celebration of peace and high-level competition.

It is also a mass event with an extremely high and important economic impact. For this 2022 edition, it is estimated that the economic turnover around the World Cup will be 20 billion US dollars. This sum is equivalent to almost 11% of Qatar's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2019. And this impact is very important for the development of the Arab country because, among other things, it will generate a large economic spillover in the tourism sector, countless jobs, real estate construction and expansion of urban infrastructure.

On the other hand, the World Cup will also have a huge media impact. Not only will it be watched by hundreds of millions of viewers around the world, including public and pay TV, but it will also reach even more people through the internet. Right now, the Qatar 2022 World Cup is already one of the most searched and mentioned events on social media, generating the most controversy and competition among users and netizens.


As a sporting event, this World Cup will bring together the 32 best teams on the planet, half of which will be eliminated in the first round and half of which will be eliminated in the 3 successive rounds, until only one champion is crowned.


The favourites are undoubtedly France, the defending champions, Brazil, as always and because they dominated the South American qualifiers, and Argentina, which has a brilliant generation of youngsters and Messi, still the best player in the world. But this is saying a lot, because it will also be one of the closest and most competitive World Cups in history.


There are other teams that have the quality to be crowned, such as England, Spain, Portugal, Belgium and Germany. Also great players who are stars and leaders in their clubs, such as Lionel Messi himself, the French players Kylian Mbbapé and Karim Benzema, the Portuguese Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, leader of the Brazilian national team, Kevin De Bruyne, Belgian captain and Manchester City star, Robert Lewandowski, Polish striker who will face Mexico, and Sadio Mané, Senegal striker and one of the most sought-after in Europe. And this is just to mention some of the stars who will be on parade at Qatar 2022.


The World Cup as an event, theme and motivation


It is surely an event that we look forward to every 4 years and that began its history in 1930 in Uruguay. Now 32 teams will compete, the best from the five continents of the planet.

And without exaggeration, because in fact, we all know that football is the most popular sport in the world. The one that arouses the most interest, the one that arouses the most passions and the game that will keep our emotions running high next November.

It will be, or rather, it is already the talk of the town. It has motivated the players and coaches who will take part and it motivates us as the public to wait for the ball to roll with the cup in the background.

That's why, at Smart Speakers, we're sure it's the perfect reason for the motivational event you need in your company, business or collaborative project.



Our most sought-after football speakers in Latin America


First of all, it is very important to keep in mind some good tips to choose the ideal speaker. A first criterion is the ability to inspire the audience. In this sense, we are looking for magnetic and inspiring personalities, who speak with a clear message, full of energy and who spread success to the audience.


And that inspirational power is also supported by popularity and sporting achievements, something that we at Smart Speakers can guarantee.

In our bureau, we not only offer you the most elite of retired footballers or coaches, who are the ones with the most available agenda. We also have active players and coaches at your disposal, although, for obvious reasons, they have a more complicated agenda.



  1. Pep Guardiola


Today he is a famed football manager, in charge of Manchester City, one of the best teams in the English Premier League. He is also responsible for one of the best teams in history, from Barcelona's most recent golden era that included a young Lionel Messi surrounded by other stars such as Andrés Iniesta, Xavi Hernández, Ronaldinho and Rafa Márquez.


As a player, he shone for Barcelona in the 1990s and, with the Spanish national team, he was one of the best players at USA 94, where he reached the quarter-finals.

He is now considered one of the best managers in the world and is proudly one of Smart Speakers' most sought-after speakers.


  1. Rafa Márquez


Rafa Márquez was the star defender of Pep Guardiola's best Barcelona alongside Carles Puyol. He is also one of the best Mexican footballers in history, who won the most recognised titles in European and international football and a legendary captain of the Tricolor, who played in no less than five World Cups from 2002 to 2018.

He is also a great entrepreneur with many projects in Mexico and Spain, an altruist in sport and founder of football academies for youngsters. A great figure who can be your ideal speaker, especially on topics such as teamwork, leadership, motivation and self-improvement.


  1. Jorge Campos

  1. Raúl Jiménez


Raúl Jiménez is set to become the main figure of the Mexican national team at the Qatar 2022 World Cup. He is a famous and talented footballer, currently the star striker for Wolverhampton Wanderers in the English Premier League.

The same that led him to shine in the Mexican national team and in foreign football. He has played for the top clubs in Europe, such as Benfica of Portugal and Atletico Madrid.

Now he is also part of the Smart Speakers network and, without a doubt, he is a great option for motivating your entire team.


  1. Jorge Valdano


The least we can say about Jorge Valdano is that he is a football intellectual. World Champion in Mexico 1986, under the great Diego Armando Maradona, Jorge Valdano scored the winning goal for Argentina in the final against Germany, in the mythical and twice World Cup-winning Azteca Stadium.

He emerged from the ranks of Argentina's Newell's Old Boys, and then catapulted into Spanish football with clubs such as Zaragoza and Real Madrid. As if that were not enough, Valdano is a writer and has published several books with remarkable depth on the world's most popular sport.

He is undoubtedly one of the most lucid voices in the world of sport, and one of the great voices of Smart Speakers on topics such as motivation, leadership and teamwork.

Published in Motivation

Considered as one of the best soccer coaches nowadays, Joseph, Pep Guardiola is known as a natural leader. Since 1992, when he lead the soccer team straight to the golden medal, his directing abilities have only increased his popularity over time.

One of the most effective resources to motivate his team is music. The fact that he guided his team to victory through Coldplay songs in 2009 is quite known. He has also used movie quotes and other bands and artists to communicate through them positivity and motivation. Being in front of a group that depends on you -at least partially – can be quite tough.

That’s where golf comes to the scene. As an athlete, Guardiola enjoys being active and outdoors, but his job as a coach requires precision, concentration and some nerves of steel. Fortunately, he found the way to exercise them in the perfect way, becoming a great motivator and strategist.
