Geoff Miller, affectionately known as “Dusty” spent twenty years as a professional cricket player, representing Derbyshire, Essex, Natal and England, traveling to all the major test playing countries and playing with or against all of 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 all the brilliant flair players to perform with freedom.”
In 2008 Geoff was appointed as Head of the England Selectors.
Apart from cricket, Geoff’s greatest attribute was the ability to keep his team mates amused with his hilarious dry northern humour which he now brings to the after dinner speaking stage from his roots in Chesterfield.
By virtue of the sport he was in, and the life he has led, Geoff now possesses a whole host of brilliant anecdotesand stories about himself and his colleagues which he relates in both, all male or mixed company.
Geoff is also an excellent motivational speaker, covering subjects including teamwork and success.
“I just wanted to pass on my thanks, on behalf of Wolverhampton Law Society, to Geoff Miller for a wonderfully amusing and entertaining speech that he gave after our Annual Dinner on Friday last week. As promised he was a delight and we would not hesitate to recommend him to others for similar events. He also helped me to win the sweep stake on the length of the speeches so this will always make him my personal favourite!! ” Tracy Davis, Thorne Solicitors
“The overall feedback is that Geoff was brilliant. His speech was very funny and struck all the right notes. In addition, he entered into the spirit of the evening and was very open with all attendees who wanted some of his time. Many, many attendees gave their compliments as to how good he was, which is a true reflection of his contribution. Having had Martin Bayfield as last year’s speaker and wondering how we could top him, at the end of the dinner we were left wondering who to get next year to top Geoff. Many thanks for your assistance with the arrangements”. David Morgan, PWC
