Steve Hamison

Steve Harmison MBE

Add To Speakers List

One of English cricket’s greatest ever bowlers, Steve Harmison represented his country in 63 Test matches, 58 ODIs and played a crucial role in England’s historic 2005 Ashes victory. As well as his proficiency on the cricket field, Steve has also established himself as one of the best cricket after dinner speakers around, using his platform to not only share sporting stories but inspire others with his unique life experiences.

Having made his international debut in 2002, Steve really made a name for himself during the 2003/04 tour of the West Indies when he became his country’s highest wicket-taker of the series. This fine form continued into the 2005 Ashes series, where England beat Australia for the first time in almost 20 years. A historic moment for English cricket, Steve was named in the 2005 Wisden Cricketers of the Year list, accompanied his teammates on a celebratory visit to Downing Street and was awarded an MBE by the Queen. These stunning performances mean he remains one of the UK’s most popular cricket speakers, and when booked for your event can delight the audience with thrilling anecdotes discussing what this period of his career was like. 

As well as his successful international career, ‘Harmy’ as he’s affectionately known to fans, spent 17 years in domestic cricket playing for Durham. 

What makes Steve one of the industry’s most unique cricket speakers is that his talks are not limited to just the sport that made his name. Professional cricket is famous for the amount of travel involved, with tours taking place all around the world. It’s been well documented that while spending large sections of time away from home, Steve suffered from both homesickness and, eventually, clinical depression. 

When booked for social, corporate or any kind of event, Steve will openly and honestly discuss his battles with depression, how he overcame them and tips to inspire audience members who may be similarly struggling.

Steve is just one of a number of excellent after dinner cricket speakers that the team here at Evolve can provide for your next event. Call or email us today, and we’ll be happy to help.
