Andrew Strauss

Andrew Strauss is the former England Cricket Test Captain, one of only 3 England Captains EVER to successfully lead England to Ashes victories home and away.   He is also leading run scorer in the current team having passed 6,000 Test runs and is fast approaching his 100th Test cap.  In addition as player and captain of the One Day team, he has made over 100 ODI appearances for England.  His recent achievements have seen him nominated for ‘BBC Sports Personality of the Year’ twice and being granted the ‘Freedom of the City of London’.

Andrew is the consummate professional and despite his late arrival on the international scene (following time working in the City) he has made the best of his talent in order to become one of the very best current international batsmen – in 2009 he was the leading international run scorer worldwide.  Currently with 19 Test centuries he is in the top 5 England players of all time.

Andrew is always in the public eye, always in the media, and major upcoming international series will ensure his high profile is maintained during the full 2012 England international schedule throughout the summer, during overseas series in India this winter, followed by back-to-back Ashes series in 2013. Andrew is on TV often, a career of studio analysis could be on the horizon and he is a very popular corporate speaker. He delivers key speeches, motivational and leadership talks and delivers key messages to the very highest standard. The ability to interact with guests and share his experiences and information as former England captain about management and leadership means he is in great demand in the Corporate world.

Andrew is an experienced and popular presenter and public speaker. He has hosted numerous Corporate occasions, such as elite dinners, award ceremonies, Gala Charity Dinners, Q&A panels and Breakfast meetings and business occasions.
