Dare to Dream Big: From the Olympic Podium to the Board Room
His skiing career wasn’t always easy. At times when many would have quit, Alexandre rolled up his sleeves and worked twice as hard to become the best athlete he could be. In this motivational keynote, Alexandre discusses the lessons and values that took him to the highest peaks of his sport. With his unique perspective as a new CPA, he illustrates how those lessons can be applied to anyone, from aspiring CPAs to those established in their careers.
- Overcoming adversity
- Determination and the importance of working towards a goal
- The power of teamwork and how to surround yourself with likeminded people
