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.
