About Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ebony Rainford-Brent is a former English cricketer who was part of the squad that won the 2009 World Cup, World T20 and Women’s Ashes. Following retirement from sport Ebony moved into broadcasting becoming one of the first female pundits on BBC’s flagship programme Test Match Special and later becoming a regular on Sky TV. Now a multi-award winning broadcaster including an SJA (Sport’s Journalist Award) and BAFTA.

Alongside cricket she has completed a Masters in Chemistry from the University of London. She also became the first Director of women’s cricket at Surrey County Cricket Club and joining the club board, and oversaw the performance structure which saw Surrey Stars win the Kia Super League trophy in 2018.

Ebony’s passion for giving back has included her engaging in various charities including developing programmes for the Lord’s Taverners, currently a trustee for chance to shine and now forming a new charity The ACE Programme Charity looking to support diverse talent from the grassroots to the elite of the game and improve representation in cricket.

Ebony has received a number of honours and recognition for her work including being awarded the Freedom of the City in 2020 and an MBE in 2021 for services to cricket and charity.

Ebony runs a podcast called ‘The Art of Success’ where she sits down with high performers from various fields to unpick tools and strategies for success.

Ebony had me hooked from the very start of her presentation. It was truly refreshing to listen to someone who had tailored their talk specifically to the audience in the room which consequently meant the content from: personal stories, to career progression, to techniques and advice on how to start structuring career development, was all wholly relevant, engaging and inspiring. I hope to follow Ebony’s motivational footprint, drive and determination

Oxfordshire Cricket Association

The dinner was a great success and Ebony’s ‘after dinner talk’ was excellent and I think that everyone attending must have been motivated by her enthusiasm for the game, and the way we can overcome problems as they crop up in life. She was so good in greeting and congratulating the players as they came forward for their trophies, and the two ladies (one the women's captain) who attended from my own club were thrilled to be able to chat with her, she was such an encouragement to them, and her ability to hold the audience and to interact with them was a joy to see.
