Michael Vaughan OBE

Add To Speakers List

One of the most successful England cricket captains of all time, Michael Vaughan led his country to a record 26 Test victories including the historic Ashes victory in 2005. A prolific batsman, Michael scored more than 5,000 test runs and since retiring has become a popular cricket broadcaster both here in the UK, and abroad. Plus, he’s also well-known for being one of the most sought after cricket speakers on the circuit, utilising his sporting expertise and down to earth popularity to engage and entertain audiences everywhere.

An enthusiastic sports lover as a child, Michael chose to pursue a career in cricket over football. Joining his local county of Yorkshire, he spent his entire career representing the team in the domestic game and made his professional debut at the age of just 17. It wasn’t long until he caught the eye of England selectors, and he received his first callup in 1999. He soon became one of the nation’s best performers, and in 2001 he scored his first Test century during a match against Pakistan.

However, undoubtedly the pinnacle of Michael’s cricket career came in 2005 during the Ashes series in the UK against Australia. At the time, England had not been victorious in the series since 1987, and a win looked unlikely. Despite this, his inspirational captaincy style led England to a historic 2-1 victory and saw the nation gripped by cricket like never before. Following the win, Michael was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s New Years’ Honours and joined the rest of his teammates in a visit to 10 Downing Street.

When booked as one of the most popular cricket after-dinner speakers, Michael can discuss with audiences what it was like being part of such a historic sporting moment.

Following his retirement from professional cricket in 2009, Michael moved into cricket broadcasting featuring on the BBC’s famous Test Match Special radio show, where he analysed England’s latest cricket matches and Test series. He’s also appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live’s Fighting Talk panel show, appeared on BT Sport’s coverage of cricket and worked for Fox Sports Australia during the Aussie test summer.

Vaughany, as he is affectionately known in cricket circles, is regarded as one of the most recognisable cricket speakers out there. Alongside his fascinating anecdotes from almost two decades in the professional game, he’s able to give unique insights on current cricket events and apply lessons learned from the game to a range of corporate environments.
