Dirk Heuff
Ambassador: Europe

Dirk is a proud Dutchman and father of 3 Warriors and has participated and assisted at multiple Warriors activities. That experience was so very positive for him that he has regularly shares it with everyone willing to listen. He is a real Warriors ambassador. 

Dirk’s work as a business coach focusses on empowering people from all walks of life to develop into the best version of themselves, whether that is in business, in sport or in their personal life. With a loving smile he challenges and confronts while listening very carefully to your story. 

Dirk has been an international rugby referee (talking about managing people …) and enjoys cooking a good French cuisine with a glass of wine on the side. His love for SA finds its origin in 1997 when honeymooning the country. Ever since, he has made multiple trips to SA. These trips always included rugby, braai, hippo’s and beers. 

All this puts him in a perfect position to be Warriors’ first ambassador in Europe. He is based in The Netherlands.
