Speaker Ashley Giles MBE – international cricketer, Head Coach, Director of Cricket, National Selector and Managing Director with vast sporting experience at domestic and international level.
In a playing career spanning sixteen years Ashley Giles represented England 54 times in Test cricket and 62 times in one day internationals. Ashley Giles was a vital part of the 2005 winning team that regained The Ashes for the first time in 20 years in what is often called the greatest test series of all time.
Spending his entire first class career with Warwickshire he was forced into retirement in 2007 due to injury. Four weeks later he was appointed as Warwickshire Director of Cricket and has held important cricket management roles ever since. He has been a County Championship, T20 Blast and One Day Trophy winning Head Coach and Director of Cricket, and has a history of successfully leading and managing teams in challenging and highly pressurised environments. The pinnacle of this journey came in 2019, whilst Ashley was Managing Director of England mens’ cricket as they won their first ever 50 over World Cup.
Today Ashley Giles speaks to audiences on leadership. He advises on working with high performing teams, and how to cope with adversity, anxiety and on crisis management. Ashley delivers a great after-dinner speech with stories of a 30 year journey in professional cricket and from sharing a dressing room with some of the greatest characters in the game. And he’ll tell you why he’s called The King of Spain and how the King of Spain doesn’t agree!
Ashley Giles was awarded the MBE in 2006 for services to cricket. Together with his wife, Stine in 2015 Ashley he launched the Giles Trust which has now raised over a million pounds for brain tumour treatment, research and support.
