Interview with Yvonne Camus - Eco-Challenge Adventure Race Participant and Professional Speaker
Yvonne Camus is an astoundingly assured speaker on grit, resilience, perseverance, and the character traits we need to achieve incredible success over the long haul. The hundreds of standing ovations she has collected testify to her enthusiasm for work, life, and connecting with audiences. Camus was a participant in the Eco-Challenge, the world championship of adventure racing conceived by Mark Burnett of Survivor fame. (Hers was the first rookie team to complete the grueling competition.) Punchy, deeply moving, and often humorous, Camus draws on her experiences to show you how to rise to the challenges of training, preparation, and execution. In the process, she helps you to see—and to realize—the potential for grit and greatness in yourself, in your co-workers, and in your entire organization.
“Yvonne’s ability to take her experience and deliver it in such a way that she understood the character profile of the group and that she needed to move fast and be entertaining yet motivating, was sensational. Her talent in paralleling many of her experiences to some very key issues that the dealers are facing today was also quite brilliant.”—GM Canada
Yvonne Camus serves as COO of the fitness club World Health, where she oversees more than 600 employees. She also works with World Health’s sister companies, Orange Theory Fitness (with over 400 franchised locations, globally) and Fresh Fit Foods (which offers fresh, healthy, pre-made meals to clients exercising at World Health and Orange Theory gyms).
Leading a High Performance Life
Yvonne Camus delivers a talk that will make you rethink workplace pressures, stress, and what it means to lead a high performance life. Despite daunting challenges, it is possible—in fact, it is absolutely necessary—to achieve high performance living. Stress, relentless and unremitting, is taking an enormous toll on our health. When our bodies and minds are exhausted, we find it hard to produce creative ideas. But it doesn't have to be this way. Drawing on the latest from nutrition, exercise, relaxation, and mindset—the four pillars of health—Camus presents a deeply relatable talk, full of effective real life strategies: the One Minute Meditation, the Mindful Eating Plan, and others. More than just a handful of tips on how to “reduce stress,” this absorbing talk will help audiences fully incorporate healthy, high performance into every aspect of their lives.
