Graham Gooch

Cricket After Dinner Speaker

Graham Gooch, Cricket Speaker



Former England and Essex Cricket Captain, Graham Gooch OBE is one of the most successful English batsmen of all time, scoring 67,057 runs throughout his first-class and limited-overs games in his 27 year career. His exploits during his professional playing career have found him working for the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) as their full-time batting coach. When he isn’t busy coaching currently the best batsmen in the country, Gooch is a popular figure within the after dinner speaker circuit, excelling as a cricket speaker.

One of only twenty-five players to have scored over 100 first-class centuries, Gooch retired aged 42 after completing 118 tests. Inducted into the ICC hall of fame in 2009, Gooch returned to his domestic side, Essex, to undertake a coaching role, before progressing onto the lead batsmen coach with the ECB. Making his first-class debut for Essex at 19 years old, Gooch represented Essex throughout his career. Taking over 200 first-class wickets with his medium paced bowling action, Gooch seems to be a cricketing jack of all trades. Holding the England captaincy from 1988 to 1993, Gooch was part of the infamous ‘Rebel’ tour of 1990, and despite being banned for three years, his stature as a leading batsman remains. As a cricket speaker, Graham speaks of his times at an elite level of sport as well as key attributes to maintain performance and achieve goals, aspects relatable to both business and sporting environments.

An accomplished cricketer handing down his knowledge and expertise to the next generation, Gooch is a popular after dinner speaker and cricket speaker. Delivering informative talks which would suit any event, his status as a sports speaker and cricket speaker has increased dramatically over the last few years. Since undertaking the batting coaching role at the ECB, being responsible for the batting responsibilities for the current crop of senior International batsmen, his profile has increased and proves testament to his accomplished talks as a cricket speaker.
