Need another reason to attend? How about our keynote speaker: Olympian Cody Sorensen! Here’s some more info about Cody!

“In February of 2014 Cody was gearing up to compete at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi as part of the number 3 ranked bobsleigh team in the world. His story and journey leading up to and since the Olympic Games is one of personal resilience, interpersonal skills development, passion, and weaves the principles of building high-performance teams throughout.

His journey in high-performance international sport began as a collegiate track & field athlete where Cody was the captain of the Guelph varsity track team for 2 years, captured several individual national medals, and led the team to a national team championship title in 2008. In 2010 he was named Ontario Male athlete of the year, after being recruited to the Canadian bobsleigh team.

Cody has since been a motivational speaker for students and youth with Motivate Canada, a high-performance teams speaker across Canada through the RBC Olympians program, and has completed a Queen’s MBA. He has now transitioned to roles in banking and M&A consulting where he continues to successfully apply personal and team leadership principles in a business environment.”
