Add To Speakers List

Robert Key is a former England international cricketer who currently works as the Managing Director of England’s national team. In this role, Robert is responsible for many of the biggest decisions that impact English cricket. In the domestic game, he spent his entire career with local side Kent, spending over a decade as the county’s captain and playing for them between 1998-2016.

Alongside his work with England, Robert is also one of the industry’s most accomplished cricket speakers in the business, who regularly recalls fascinating anecdotes from his successful career much to the delight of audiences.

Born into a cricket-loving family, Robert played his first match for Kent’s second team when he was just 16 years old. During his time with the team, he led them to a County Championship 2nd Division title, two Twenty20 Cup finals and a Friends Provident Trophy final. At all of his speaking occasions, he’s able to discuss what it was like captaining the team he supported as a boy and playing for them in such high-profile matches.

His excellent form in a Kent shirt was soon noticed by England selectors, and in 2002 he made his Test debut in a match against India. During a tour of the West Indies in 2004, he scored his maiden Test century, and his excellent form saw him named one of the five Wisden Cricketers of the Year – the cricketing world’s most prestigious award.

In 2016, Rob retired from professional cricket and became a popular pundit and commentator for a whole host of media outlets – including Sky Sports. He gave up his media commitments in 2022 when he was named Managing Director of England, and in his capacity as an excellent cricket speaker is able to discuss all of the latest goings-on in the sport, as well as stories from his own career.
