Featured Speaker: Cyril Derreumaux: "91-Day Completely Alone Across the Pacific in a Kayak. Lessons Learned"

Completely alone in an unforgiving and relentless environment: what does it take to think, act, and deliver like an athlete, to elevate your game, over and over again, until you reach your goals?
An incredible story of human potential, rising to the challenge and overcoming all odds: "Cyril is not just in it to win it. He is in it to expand limits, to rise to the occasion, to redefine possible, and to share what he has learned".
"The most important thing is not my adventure itself, but the learnings from it. The most important are what I can teach, pass on and transmit to others. I want to be a relatable and personified example of going after your passion, of going further, finding your inner drive, and always chasing the things in life that make you vibrate and feel alive" - Cyril Derreumaux
