The unique and continued hurdles facing female founders and mentoring to success

Keynote, Kevin Rempel


Kevin Rempel has surmounted incredible life-challenges to reach the Olympic podium and now to bring his powerful message of hope and resilience to audiences through his speaking and writing.

A freestyle motocross accident left Kevin an incomplete paraplegic and was told by doctors he would likely never walk again.
However, Kevin was determined, and willed himself to move one toe, then another, and another until – eventually – he not only walked again but was able to become one of Canada’s best Paralympic athletes earning a Bronze medal at the 2014 Paralympics in Sochi, Russia.

Today, through his keynote speaking and corporate team building program, The Sledge Hockey Experience, Kevin shares his personal story inspiring others that even when you have every reason to quit, you must keep going.

By adopting The Hero Mindset, you too can become the hero of your own movie. Unlock the mindset that enables you and your organization to drive results and embrace change.

The Breakouts
