The passion that drives an Olympian is the same passion that drives an organization’s leaders. With his humour, authenticity, and energetic delivery, Jeremiah captivates audiences as he draws parallels between the worlds of Olympic sport and business.

Jeremiah takes audiences on an incredible one-of-a-kind journey of personal transformation and team unity. He challenges common notions of what it means to lead and to be led in the pursuit of excellence. He shows how to adapt to forces outside of one’s control and stay the course when the pressure is on, all while encouraging a healthy dose of self-compassion and humility. Using vivid real-life Olympic setbacks, failures, and ultimate success, Jeremiah illuminates the true markers for success in any competitive setting.
