Speaker Booking Enquiry

Geoff Miller spent 20 years on the professional cricket circuit representing Derbyshire, Essex, Natal and England, travelling to all the major Test playing countries and playing with or against the present day greats. To which he freely admits “I wasn’t one of them”.

In his own words “I was a comparatively boring bread and butter cricketer who was only selected in the team to allow brilliant flair players to perform with freedom”.

Apart from cricket, Geoff Miller’s  greatest attribute was the ability to keep his team mates amused for hours with his hilarious dry northern humour which he now brings to the after dinner speaking circuit

I have always thought that both life and cricket were taken far too seriously and it is necessary to see the funny side on occasions.

By Virtue of the sport he was in, and the life he has led, Geoff Miller now possesses a whole host of hilarious anecdotes and stories about himself and his colleagues which he relates in both all male or mixed company. Naturally cricket is not the only subject to be put under the microscope in his search for amusement.

Geoff Miller  is now in popular demand up and down the country and overseas and he has found his new found careers just a stimulating as facing Michael Holding and Ian Botham (who he roomed with on tour for five years!) There must be a story or two somewhere from that – and indeed there is!!

Why not be entertained by a clean, modest man with and uncanny talent for making people laugh!!
Geoff Miller’s  appeal is not just limited to cricket events and Geoff has spoken at countless corporate functions, sportsman’s evenings, luncheons and fundraisers.

In the past he has worked for companies such as AXA, Bass, Boots, BT, Citroen, Royal Bank of Scotland, Shell, TNT, Nat West and many of the prestigious sports clubs throughout the UK.

Whatever your event, be assured that when booking Geoff Miller, you are securing one of the best after dinner speakers on the circuit today.
