Ex British Lion Martin Bayfield is an extremely entertaining former Rugby Football Player of the Year with a wealth of rugby-related anecdotes. He made his England debut in 1991 and played for the first team until 1998 when he was forced to retire from the game as a result of a serious neck injury. Another claim to fame amongst the young and the old, is as Robbie Coltrane’s stand-in for the Harry Potter films! Martin is a former presenter on BBC’s Crimewatch. He also reached the final three of Celebrity Masterchef. He is a key member of the BT Sport commentary team.
He is actively involved with charity, and is an Honorary President of the Wooden Spoon Society, the rugby charity that supports disadvantaged children and young people.
He is a brilliantly funny after dinner speaker and also a very effective motivational speaker at corporate events on the importance of teamwork. “Thank you for an excellent speech that dove-tailed into our overall presentations and helped communicate our “No Fear” theme. Your speech was aimed at exactly the right level and has been one of the talking points since we have returned to work … I have recommended that we use you for our Group Conference to be held later this year“.
