Beckie Scott is the first Canadian, and the first North American woman, to ever win an Olympic Medal in cross-country skiing. She retired in 2006 and has become an accomplished, dynamic, and inspirational speaker, focusing on teamwork, leadership and overcoming adversity. Her motivating presentations have incredible lessons to help us with personal growth and in our professional careers.
