Who we are

Chris Cowdrey, Founder

Chris is a former England cricket captain, who since retiring from cricket in 1992, has attended more than 2,000 events as Guest Speaker, Master of Ceremonies, Auctioneer, Fundraiser or simply as a guest. As a result he knows better than anyone the pitfalls of an event, whether a Charity fundraiser or a Corporate event.

Our Approach

The Event Doctor is an advisory business. We complement the organiser, helping to deliver a seamless event which crucially avoids the errors which regularly spoil such occasions. Our objectives are to see to it that charities make more money and to ensure the businesses we work with can be proud of their events.

What we do

Our services


We can make a significant difference to any Fundraiser. Raising funds is an art and even the best event organiser needs fundraising support. We are forever hearing ‘it was a good event but we didn’t make as much as we had hoped’. If the fundraising element of the event is not planned effectively then those who suffer will be those who were meant to benefit.

Corporate events

We offer support to corporate events which are often run in-house by a member of staff. An inexperienced event organiser is vulnerable and prone to error, which inevitably affects the enjoyment of the guests and the credibility of the Company. The Event Doctor can help mitigate this risk to ensure employees and clients alike, leave with a positive feeling about your business.

I don’t know how to thank you for what you did for us last week and in the months preceding the event. I am hugely embarrassed at the way I rather dismissed the idea of using you in the first place.

The Royal Marsden & Advance

I cannot thank you enough for the quite excellent and professional way you ran the evening as Master of Ceremonies. It is almost the first time that an event of this magnitude has actually finished on time!
