BIG GOALS In Short Order

 
Vince Poscente is a master communicator who speaks from experience. Experience that lights up a room full in an entertaining and substantive way.

“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."

Now is the time to use Vince Poscente’s expertise to your advantage. His against-all- odds Olympic strategy is powerful way to have your team reach BIG GOALS fast. 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 a prolific author, consultant and speaker, guiding corporations around the globe toward accelerated personal and organizational results.

While others in your industry may tend to ‘hang-on,’ Poscente illustrates how to get down to business and up to speed for 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.

“Simple motivation is not the only thing audiences want to hear today. My job is to light the path of how we surprise even ourselves with BIG GOALS in Short Order.”

A seasoned meeting planner described Vince Poscente in this way:

"As an event planner, I am much more critical of speakers than most.  Vinceachieved a AAA .  Vince Poscente had the energy of Robin Williams, the clarity of Anderson Cooper and the presentation content of Colin Powell.  If you want a motivational, exciting and dynamic speaker, hire Vince."
