Nick Dreyer is the Co-founder and CEO of VELDSKOEN™ shoes, the iconic South African product that took the world by storm. Nick matriculated at Pretoria Boys High School and pursued a career in the hospitality industry, after obtaining a National Diploma in Hospitality Management from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. The next 17 years was spend as GM of the world-class Ellerman House in Bantry Bay, Director of Everard Read – Africa’s oldest commercial art gallery, and owner of Auriti – a fine art advisory firm providing specialised services in selected markets, to name but a few.
In 2017, after seeing the South African Olympic team in their “misfit” outfits that did not resemble a fraction of the talent and uniqueness that South Africa has to offer, and a six-hour car drive whilst on a call with High School friend – now business partner – Ross Zondagh, VELDSKOEN™ shoes was born.
The VELDSKOEN™ journey has been one that will leave you laughing, inspired, in total awe, but mostly questioning one’s own determination and persistence. Nick is sharing their journey, but also some of his lessons learned – and of course some fun stories too – in his keynote addresses.
Nick is a speaker of note. An entrepreneur who is undoubtedly moving and shaking the e-Commerce industry, but mostly leaving deep footprints with a touching and all-inspiring story.
