David Dein MBE is a British businessman, known for being a former co-owner and vice-chairman of Arsenal Football Club, and former vice-chairman of the Football Association. David Dein was vice-chairman of Arsenal between 1983 and 2007, and was instrumental in the formation of the Premier League in 1992 and in appointing Arsene Wenger as Arsenal manager in 1996.

We were honoured to have him come to EGS as part of the Speakers for Schools programme to deliver a motivational and inspirational talk; it was a fantastic presentation about life in the Premiership and being successful. David then took questions from our students.
