The fact that he only turned to this career after hitting the pinnacle of his sport makes his story even more impressive.

His journey to the Olympics was even more impressive. Vince initially took up skiing as a weekend hobby, as many people in his native Canada do. After a few seasons, he realised that he had a passion and ability for the sport that could take him much further. This led to mhim making the journey from casual skiing to the Canadian Olympics team, renowned as one of the best at the winter games in only four years.

Vince is also able to tailor his subjects and speaking style to a particular audience. Whether he needs to discuss overcoming problems with a business plan or in the personal life of an audience, Vince is able to remix his topics and speaking style to ensure that he gives a speech that his listeners will remember for a very long time.
