Victor Vermeulen

Victor Vermeulen is a leading inspirational speaker and best-selling author. His book, “The Victor Within”, has sold over 21,000 copies. Victor has experienced firsthand the incredible power of resilience – he is a quadriplegic who injured himself in a swimming pool accident nine years ago. Before this time he was a gifted athlete.

He has had many sporting achievements including playing three years South African Cricket and the breaking of the Nuffield 20-year batting record of Graham Pollock 175 (not out) at the age of 16. His biggest sporting highlight is when he played at Lords for Transvaal A against a world invitation side.

As a junior he was prodigy of Jimmy Cook and amongst others played with Shaun Pollock, Hansie Cronje, Daryl Cullinan and Adam Bacher.

He played South African Schools Soccer and at 15 was approached by Jomo Sono to play for Cosmos. He also played Craven final trials rugby as a Std 9 and 10 student.

Victor’s dynamic presentation “The Winner Within” is accompanied by powerful video and audio footage and guarantees to energize any audience.

What our clients say ...

"Two words: Life changing, from the moment Victor starting speaking to the time he closed off his presentation, everyone hung on to his last word. The admiration and respect in their face couldn’t have been more clear. I honestly believe that everyone’s lives was changed either in a big way or small; either way, he made a difference in their lives."
Nadia Kirstensamy, Marketing Assistant, Old Mutual

“What an eye-opening and a new perspective to look at life. Victor made us realise that you are not what other people perceive you to be, you are what you think!”
Ms Linda Khuluse, Communications Specialist, Eskom

“Victor makes one humble and wants you to perform better and not to complain about everything. He has a passion for life and for him there is no challenge too big... Victor has taken a life that could so easily have been a tragedy and a burden to those close to him and turned it into a powerful success story. With so many odds against him, Victor has become an inspiration to us all, to make the most of every day before it is too late.”
Mr Anthony Baron, Senior Manager, SA Reserve Bank
