Sir Geoff Hurst

Sir Geoff Hurst

Sir Geoff Hurst was a key player for the England team in the 1966 World Cup, and is said to have influenced the famous “they think it’s all over…it is now” quote.

He is still the only player to ever score a hat trick in a World Cup final!

Since retiring from his football playing career, Geoff has experience in managing teams, playing county cricket, becoming a successful entrepreneur and businessman, providing inspirational after-dinner and keynote speeches.

He is still one of the most popular speakers on the circuit; his status as a footballing veteran and World Cup winner make him an impressive choice for all types of events.

Not surprisingly, we had some excellent feedback from our delegates; very entertaining – great to hear from a great team player and sports and business expert.
Emma Spear, Marketing Manager, SDI Europe

Sir Geoff was arguably the most balanced guest we have ever had. His professionalism and personal humility was a paradoxical mix that won the greatest respect of everyone there. Coupled with this was his ability to converse on topics at the highest level, whilst knowing when to revert to boyish humour. A truly outstanding individual.
Nigel Jackson, Head of RBS Retail Banking

Working with Geoff Hurst was an absolute pleasure. On camera, Geoff was very natural and engaging and delivered exactly what was needed. Throughout the shoot he was charming and a true professional. It’s not every day that you get to work with aa World Cup winner and working with Geoff was a real joy.
Sam Grace, BAFTA winning TV Director

It has been a real pleasure working with Sir Geoff Hurst. His dedication to the cause and willingness to get involved has been invaluable and will be a hard act to follow for any future presidents.

Very professional, extremely supporting in pre-event prep and onsite, truly nice to work with.
