Alec Stewart OBE is a former England cricket captain.
Educated at Tiffin Boys’ School in Kingston-upon-Thames, Alec made his cricket debut for Surrey in 1981.
He made his England debut in the first Test of the 1989/90 tour of the West Indies.
Alec Stewart was vice-captain of the England team during most of Michael Atherton’s tenure as captain. Alec eventually succeeded Michael, becoming Captain in 1998.
During his captaincy, he had the unusual distinction of simultaneously captaining the side, opening the batting and keeping wicket.
“Many Governors and guests commented very favourably on Alec’s speech at The Plaza. It was pitched just right for the audience of pupils and parents.”

In 1994, at the Kensington Oval in the West Indies, Alec Stewart became the 7th English batsman to score centuries in both innings of a test match.
His highest Test score was 190 against Pakistan in the first Edgbaston Test on 4th June 1992.
With 133 international caps, Alec Stewart is one of the highest capped English Test cricketers of all time.

A natural guest speaker with a confident and considered delivery, Alec’s natural comic timing lends him perfectly to the cricket after-dinner circuit.
Alec’s leadership credentials ensure his keynote speech ‘Leaving Nothing to Chance‘ offers a useful and enlightening insight into focus, dedication and team motivation amongst other aspects.
