Dion Nash was one of the biggest names in New Zealand cricket for a decade in the 1990s with 93 test wickets and a lot of attitude.
Remembered as much for his break-out performance at Lords as he is for the pot-smoking incident in South Africa, he retired early due to injury. Shortly after he became an outspoken player advocate helping to set up the Cricket Players Association, and finally a national selector.
He then transitioned into a successful businessman, learning the ropes with stellar kiwi brand 42below, where he became a global director, before founding skincare brand Triumph & Disaster, which is now sold in hundreds of retailers around the world.
All the while the foundation provided by his wife – former Silver Ferns captain Bernice Mene – allowed him to become a thoughtful and driven high achiever. After listening to this, you’ll get a clear picture of how he was able to seamlessly turn his on-field success, to off-field.
