Former professional football player Dean Holdsworth is highly sought after as an after-dinner speaker. With a career spanning 22 years, Holdsworth was part of the famous 'Crazy Gang' at Wimbledon FC during the 1990s, alongside players like Vinnie Jones and Dennis Wise. Known for his powerful striking abilities, Holdsworth scored 193 goals in 610 league appearances for 16 different teams, with the majority of his success coming with Brentford, Wimbledon, and Bolton Wanderers in the late 80s and early 90s.

Since retiring from playing, Holdsworth has become a popular sports speaker at various events. His experiences as a player-manager for Redbridge and later as a manager for Newport County have given him valuable insights into the game. Holdsworth's laddish character and humorous anecdotes about the 'crazy gang' make him relatable and entertaining for audiences.

In addition to his playing and managerial career, Holdsworth has also made significant contributions to the football community. He served as chairman of the Professional Footballers' Association and founded the Non-League Footballers Association. Throughout his career, he has received numerous awards, including League Two Manager of the Month, Conference National Manager of the Month, and Conference South Manager of the Year.
