Speaker Bio

"The Best Speaker We've Ever Had"

A native of Somerset in the West Country of England, Dr. Dean Allen’s long association with South Africa began in the mid-1990s when he began his studies at Stellenbosch University. An accomplished and entertaining public speaker, Dean has presented his unique blend of story-telling and history at events throughout the world. Until recently a Senior Lecturer at Bournemouth University in the UK, Dean has now embarked on a professional MC and speaking career that has brought him back to his beloved South Africa.

Over the past decade Dean has taught at Universities here in South Africa, Australia, Northern Ireland and England and is widely published in the areas of sports history and sociology. His award-nominated book Empire, War and Cricket has sold over 10,000 copies alone in South Africa!
