Greg Ritchie

Speaker / Host

Based in Gold Coast

Former Test cricketer and decorated shield player, Greg Ritchie is virtually a one-stop-shop in after-dinner speaking. A motivator capable of inspiring corporate clients he is a most humorous raconteur.

Greg is possibly as good a speaker as he was a cricketer and has the ability to hold a diverse and discerning audience captivated for as long as required. He can MC an evening, act as an auctioneer and his comedic anecdotal cricket stories see him regarded these days as one of Australia’s best after dinner speakers.

Greg Ritchie started his test career for Australia in Pakistan in 1982 becoming the only Australian to score three centuries in the series, only to be dropped from the team for the Ashes series against England a few months later. Back within the Ashes team in 1985, he went on to play 30 Tests, scoring a total of 1690 runs including three centuries and seven half-centuries. In the year 2000, he was named as one of the seven greatest Sheffield Shield run-scorers in Queensland’s history for amassing over 6000 runs for his state during his 10-year career.

Since retiring in 1986, Ritchie has had a continuous media career that has included time with the Channel Nine commentary team and Triple M Brisbane’s breakfast show. Just like his cricket where it is said he “developed into a first-class cricketer who possessed wonderful timing when in full, glorious flow” Greg Richie is a first-class entertainer who possesses “wonderful timing and a full glorious flow when it comes to story-telling”.

With a high international profile, Greg offers knowledge, charisma and professionalism gained from years as an elite sportsman, news breaker (and maker) and television and radio presenter. With an almost encyclopedic knowledge of cricket, and a wealth of experience hosting events and award ceremonies and after dinner speaking, at home and overseas, he is certain to entertain and maybe even inspire audiences from all walks of life...cricket lovers or not.
