Having cut his teeth as an athletic (and sometimes fiery!) all rounder in the cauldron that is international cricket, Dion successfully made the transition into the world of business.

He was sought out by drinks brand, 42Below, who quickly elevated him to Marketing Director. But it wasn't long before Dion set his sights on a higher mountain peak, founding the incredibly popular men's grooming range 'Triumph & Disaster'.

Dion’s passion for skincare dates back to his long days spent enduring the elements while toiling away on the field. His brand is at the very forefront of a clean, natural, ethical skincare revolution. T&D has grown exponentially since it's humble beginning, now selling in over 300 stores worldwide and across more than ten countries - including prestigious stores such as Fred Segal in Los Angeles, and Selfridges in London.

An incredibly engaging speaker, Dion shares a captivating story - from playing at the elite level of professional sport, to building an international brand from the ground up. His stage presence is electric, and he leaves his audience feeling uplifted and motivated.

“It takes entrepreneurial spirit,” says Nash, “but the hardest part is actually having a go. Having an idea, and wanting to do something promising is one thing - but having the courage to actually take it on... I probably credit having that with sport.”

Dion also has other strings to his bow - including being a qualified Pilates instructor. He is also a keen guitarist and an active member of local Herne Bay band, The Camel Toes, spending his spare time writing ‘ditty’s’ for the band.

Dion Nash fulfilled the role of MC at a function for Moa Brewing, In Melbourne, late 2013. In attendance were beer industry representatives, approx. 25 media and a number of celebrity guests associated and supporting Shane Warne with the launch of his beer, 99 Not Out, done in collaboration with Moa Brewing. Dion was professional, and in a somewhat highly charged environment, very much in control of guiding the event to timelines and expectations, which was critical for product and brand creditability. Of course, he also has great presence, humour and connected very well with the audience. ’

Dion was asked to be our guest speaker at the Year 8 Graduation Dinner in December 2014. Dion is a very accomplished and entertaining speaker who spoke to our students with a specific message for their age range and stage in their lives. Everyone who attended the dinner was very impressed with the inspirational and enlightening speech that Dion gave. His speech inspired our boys to challenge themselves in the future and left everyone in the room suitably impressed with Dion’s presentation. I would certainly recommend Dion to any organisation who requires a stimulating and entertaining speaker who can adapt to any brief given to him.

Dion’s speech went well last week. It was a good mix of entertaining stories and thought provoking concepts that has had the office talking.
