Only 9 weeks to go until the first Ashes Test – the Test cricket series played between England and Australia since 1882 is one of the most celebrated rivalries in international sport. Playing in five UK venues between 10th July and 25th August, this is one of the most highly anticipated sporting events of 2013.
To give their expert opinions and insider knowledge on the game are former Cricket players who now speak at a range of events from corporate, after-dinner and Q&A – including Andrew Strauss, Ed Smith, Phil Tufnell and Alec Stewart.
Andrew Strauss was one of only 3 England Captains ever to successfully lead England to Ashes victories home and away and he is brilliant at using his cricketing experiences to demonstrate lessons in leadership, motivation and teamwork that are highly relevant to a corporate audience.
Ed Smith is a former England cricketer who has since turned best-selling author, journalist and commentator on cricket as well as the wider challenges of achievement, leadership and team work.
