THE STORY: After performing for over 5 years in Cirque du Soleil and owning an entertainment company for almost ten years that produced large-scale events around the world, Vital lost his passion and sense of purpose. He spent six introspective months listening to the silence to discover his new and truest "WHY."
It became clear when retracing his journey from childhood, through adolescence and adulthood, that there was as very common theme. Vital had always found joy in inspiring and empowering others to live up to their potential. In every capacity, be it at school, the soccer team, work, scholarships and even at Cirque du Soleil, he was always elected as captain or placed in a position of leadership.
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, do more and learn more, you are a leader.” — John Quincy Adams
His personal childhood challenges (English foster care system) fueled his desire to live an adult life of meaning that impacted others in a positive way. Though performing in Cirque du Soleil provided a platform to touch and influence the masses, he sought a more profound contribution to give to the world: TO INSPIRE AND EMPOWER!
Vital spent years and endless hours of additional learning and the careful packaging of his rich experiences to create relevant and actionable content that would help organizations, individuals and teams to FLY WITHOUT A NET and become extraordinary.
"Having a positive impact and changing lives is worth more than any decibel of applause i ever received on the many magnificent stages I had the privilege of performing on or creating for. I have found my purpose!"
