Drive & Determination
“Matthew was nothing short of phenomenal. The evening was a huge success for the club with 150 people attending, Matthew took the time to talk to everyone before doing the awards, including playing a quite exquisite cover drive with a spade across my arse, a moment that will forever live with me. His after dinner speech was outstanding, how he had everyone on the edge of their seats, truly captivating. I honestly can’t praise him highly enough, the bar has well and truly been set, the worry is that we will never top it.”

“Matthew Hoggard was the perfect guest of honour at our dinner. Friendly, funny and entertaining. He was willing to help us in any way he could on the night which ended with his fantastic speech which was packed with laughs. Incredibly easy to deal with, he made our evening a wonderful success. I would wholly recommend him.”
“It was great to meet Matthew at the annual dinner for our village cricket club, Burton Agnes. He was able to chat with our players and guests and his speech or his reflections on a career stretching from Pudsey to an MBE proved that success hadn’t spoiled him. You can take a Yorkshireman out of his county but success hasn’t taken the Yorkshire out of Matthew.”

“Thank you for your assistance with the arrangements with Matthew for our dinner on Friday night. Could you please pass on my thanks on to Matthew as well. The night appears to have gone down as a success and I think in many ways down to Matthew who was a great speaker and guest. I would highly recommend him for future dinners.”
