David Dein MBE, who  was recognised for his service earlier on this year, has once again visited TBSHS to speak to the Sixth Form during Citizenship.  David follows Peter Tatchell, Jonny Benjamin MBE and Amaranatho and Hope Virgo. 

At their best, Arsenal combine(d) good means and ends. David will talked about "Sport, Business, Ethics and Life."

Today we will also see the bigger picture rather than narrowly being focussed on one particular team.

“Sport, Business, Ethics, Life”

David Dein MBE

David Dein is a football entrepreneur and businessman. David joined the Arsenal Board in 1983 and was made Vice-Chairman in the same year. He also rose to Vice-Chairman of the Football Association, and has served on numerous UEFA and FIFA Committees. David was President of the Arsenal Ladies Team, which has consistently been the best in the land. He was the man who had the foresight to bring Arsene Wenger to Arsenal in 1996. During David’s reign, the Club won:

The League 5 times
The FA Cup 5 times
The UEFA Cup Winners Cup once
The League Cup twice
The Community Shield 5 times

A total of 18 trophies!

Additionally the Club now has the finest training facilities and the most magnificent stadium -The Emirates

David was one of the main architects in the creation of the Premier League in 1992 and has been at the forefront of many of the important changes in football including the introduction of Goal Line Technology.

David’s service was recognised with an MBE earlier this year.

The means are as important as the ends – HOW you do things matters… not just WHAT you do.


"As usual your organisation was impeccable and made my job easy . The students were a credit to you and the school . They were engaged , polite and asked searching questions - a bright group"
