Opening Keynote – Inside Eco-Challenge Lessons for Survival in Life and Business

Yvonne Camus, a successful team member in Discovery Channel’s “Eco Challenge” adventure race, shares with us her conviction that ordinary people (like herself) can achieve extraordinary things—if they know the true ingredients of success: grit, teamwork, commitment, perseverance, and enthusiasm for life. Hear how her rookie team of amateur athletes used communication skills, respect for one another, and practical savvy to become the first inexperienced team to complete the gruelling competition—surprising challenge-designer Mark Burnett of Survivor fame. With amazing visuals and lots of funny, insightful stories, Camus helps us see the potential for grit and greatness in ourselves, in our co-workers, and in our organization.
