Darren Gough

Cricket After Dinner Speaker

Cricket Speaker, Darren Gough


 The second highest English wicket taker in ODIs, Darren Gough has cemented his position as not only one of England most feared bowlers of the last 20 years, but also a firm family favorite. At the forefront of the English bowling attack throughout the 90s, Gough took 229 wickets throughout his 58 test matches, putting him ninth in the all time wicket-takers list. After announcing his retirement in 2008, he turned his attentions to media and speaking duties becoming a popular cricket speaker and after dinner speaker.

Former captain of Yorkshire CC, he is possibly most famous out of cricket for appearing on BBC’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ being crowned King of the dance floor in 2005. He enjoyed a successful stint on another BBC show, this time fulfilling the role of team captain on ‘Hole in the wall’. His media success has equipped him with a skill set that transfers well into after dinner speaking and keynote speaking, something which he is being to prove popular for. Known as the perfect professional throughout his career, he has acted as a role model for young cricket players throughout England; his coherent approach to event hosting and appearances follows the same meticulous and pedantic preparation as he applied to his cricketing career.

With life before cricket involving a stint as a footballer, Gough is well equipped to be a sports speaker at events as well as specialising within cricket speaking; his years spent competing as a professional throughout both of the sports permit him to deliver inspirational keynote and after dinner speeches which will motivate and stimulate the audience. Handing down the knowledge he gained as Yorkshire captain, Gough has the ability to improve teamwork and cohesion between the audience if required in a relatable and relevant way, offering more than just your standard keynote or after dinner speaker.
