Heather Moyse is one of Canada’s great multi-sport athletes. A four-time Olympian in two-man Bobsleigh, Heather won gold at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, and again at the 2014 Games in Sochi. Before she was an Olympic champion, Heather was a mainstay on Canada’s Senior Women’s Rugby Team. Heather led Canada to silver in the 2013 Rugby Sevens World Cup, and was the top try scorer in the 2006 and 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cups. In 2016, Heather became only the second Canadian, and first Canadian female, to be inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame. Heather represented Canada in a third international sport in 2012, when she placed Top Five in two events at the Pan-Am Track Cycling Championships in Argentina.
And in 2016, before deciding to compete for her fourth Olympic Games in 2018 at 39, Heather climbed Antarctica’s highest peak, Mount Vinson, as part of an expedition to support the members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Heather’s energetic and authentic approach keeps her audiences engaged and captivated from start to finish.
The qualities it takes to be successful as an athlete are the same qualities it takes to be successful in any aspect of life – to successfully manage change, face challenges, and overcome obstacles to achieve one’s goals. With Heather’s background – as a high-performance multi-sport athlete and with a master’s degree in occupational therapy – she is perfectly qualified to help individuals, groups, and organizations shift their perspective and propel them forward towards their desired outcomes.

Her best-selling book Redefining ‘Realistic’ was released in 2017.
SPEECH AND WORKSHOP TITLES AND DESCRIPTIONS
“Unlikely, but Possible”
How is it that some talented and gifted people never live up to or learn to maximize their potential? Never feel fulfilled? Never achieve more than what is expected of them? Heather Moyse knows. As a three-sport National athlete, four-time Olympian, two-time Olympic gold medalist, and certified occupational therapist, Heather has learned through her experiences in helping herself and others achieve at the highest levels that the qualities it takes to be successful as an athlete are the same qualities it takes to be successful in any occupation or
industry – none of which have anything to do with physical strength or stamina. In this presentation, Heather reveals the four essential elements needed to succeed – four critical elements required for her to reach the top of the Olympic podium and anyone to overcome their obstacles and achieve at the highest level of performance, success, and fulfillment.
