With a charismatic personality and natural flair for commanding a room, Martin is a popular after-dinner speaker, MC and auctioneer, famed for his exceptionally funny speeches. Injury prematurely ended Martin’s glittering rugby career but he is now rightly in huge demand for a range of corporate events from local sporting clubs to prestigious gala and sports dinners, award ceremonies, company conferences, golf and away-days. An excellent motivator, at a mere 6’ 10″ Martin is a presence in every sense of the word – whether speaking or not – and is, without a doubt, one of the “biggest” hosts on the after-dinner circuit.

“We were once again very pleased with Martin. He was engaging, entertaining and managed to hold the attention of over 1,700 guests throughout the evening. He even managed very well with Keith Lemon running wild on stage!” – The Sports Industry Awards (Martin has hosted this for 11 years & counting…)

“As ever, the feedback on Martin was superb. This is the third year he has done the event and he is now very much a part of it. We really enjoy working with him and please do pass on our thanks to him”. – Diageo

“Really engaged the audience and was very funny and professional” – Event Exchange ltd

“Martin was entertaining, motivational, and frank regarding the challenges faced by the corporation. Employees were sending in complimentary emails days after the event. We are very happy with the response we received.” – Bank of New York Mellon

“I would like to personally thank Martin Bayfield for being such a wonderful guest speaker and auctioneer at our event. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the evening and are recalling Martin’s hilarious tales” – Openwork Foundation
