Vince Poscente used his unique perspective on business and speed to reach the gold medal round of the Olympic speed-skiing competition only four years after deciding to compete – with no previous racing experience. With every effort concentrated on achieving his own top speed, he began to notice the pervasive and defining influence speed has in all our lives.

As Vince says "We will not thrive by ‘coping’ our way to BIG GOALS. Seeking to ‘manage’ our way to bottom-line results, is also not the way. We will individually and organizationally thrive by accelerating towards extraordinary outcomes with one, overarching philosophy – Do what the competition is not willing to do.”[more]

His against-all odds Olympic strategy is powerful way to have your team reach BIG GOALS in less time. Vince is a business guy who decided he would compete in the Olympics four years after his 26th birthday. At the age of 30, Poscente was vying for Gold, blasting down the mountain at an incredible 135 mph on skis. With his acumen for speedy goals, he soon became an in-demand speaker, author and consultant, guiding corporations toward accelerated personal and organizational objectives.

While others in your industry may tend to hang-on, Poscente illustrates how each team member can sustain a competitive advantage. Through powerful examples and edge of your seat stories, your audience will be energized and ready to tackle the tough challenges ahead of them.“Sophisticated audiences want more than ‘simple motivation.’ My job is to illuminate a direct path for GOALS-FAST in an entertaining way.”
