Martin Bayfield

Former international rugby player Martin Bayfield is an accomplished awards host, experienced auctioneer and a hugely entertaining after dinner speaker.

At 6’10” Martin Bayfield was one of the tallest players in rugby, a gift he used to full advantage as one of England’s most potent forwards. On the field Martin enjoyed a successful international career, winning 31 England caps and two Grand Slams as well as being selected to represent the British Lions in New Zealand. Injury prematurely ended Martin’s rugby career, but his charismatic personality and natural flair  for commanding a room led him to take centre-stage at corporate events and prestigious functions.

Martin is now a popular after-dinner speaker, MC and auctioneer, famed for his exceptionally funny speeches. He is now rightly in huge demand for a range of corporate events including gala and sports dinners , awards ceremonies and company conferences. Since retirement Martin has equally moved seamlessly into broadcasting, commentating for the BBC and Radio 5 Live as well as The World’s Strongest Man.

Martin is also the co-host of the Aviva Premiership Rugby Highlights on ITV with Craig Doyle, as well as a presenter on BBC’s ‘Crimewatch’. His stature and adaptability have led him to appear on the silver screen, with roles in the Harry Potter series as Robbie Coltrane’s stunt double, and in Wrath of the Titans as a cyclops!

Martin achieved what we had hoped for — he engaged the audience and delivered an excellent speech. This had the right blend of humour, business messages and a fascinating insight into his own personality and career.
