Andrew Strauss OBE

Former England Cricket Captain & 3-Times Ashes Winner

Ashes hero and former England Cricket Captain, Andrew Strauss OBE is one of the most creative cricket players in English history. The third captain to ever lead England to home and away Ashes victories, he is a prolific run scorer reaching the 6,000 runs mark after only 89 tests. Having made over 100 ODI appearances for his country, Strauss retired in 2012 after reaching the same milestone within his test match caps. An articulated cricketer and model professional, Andrew has become a sought after cricket speaker and after dinner speaker.

Thought of as the 2nd most successful captain of modern times, only beaten by his predecessor Michael Vaughan, Andrew has been commanded for being a consummate professional throughout his career, coming into cricket at an advanced age after a career working within the City. His knowledge of business and corporate industry suits him well as a business and keynote speaker, but also as a cricket speaker.

The success he achieved as captain of his country displayed extensive leadership and management qualities; he has the abilities to deliver a keynote speech to a large group- whether it is cricket or business focused. The archetypical England Captain, role model and leader, as well as being one of the best cricket players this country has produced, Andrew Strauss has turned his attentions to commentary and analysis alongside becoming an proficient after dinner speaker and cricket speaker.

An eloquent speaker who uses his years of experience within elite Cricket and the frantic world of a City businessman to his advantage, Strauss is a favourite with many large companies and groups to deliver inspiring and stimulating keynote speeches and cricket after dinner speeches to conferences and events.

“I just wanted to say thank you for your presentation at our management conference and also for staying around for ‘Escape the Box’. It was a really interesting presentation and it certainly reinforced quite a few things for me that I know we’ve not been good at which includes the constant checking/measurement against your strategic objectives. From a personal point of view I was very interested in the ongoing efforts to make sure we are meeting all our targets in advance of next year and the importance of certain measures. I also did a fair amount of checking with our international colleagues during the rest of the day and night and they were all very complimentary and didn’t at all feel a lack of understanding of cricket hindered their enjoyment of your presentation. Thanks again.” – Ross, Perform Group
