After the Olympics, Top Gold Medal Speaker, Alexandre Bilodeau pursued a career in accounting & is currently a senior advisor in transactional services at KPMG. As a freestyle skier, Alexandre Bilodeau captured the imaginations and hearts of an entire nation when he became the first Olympian to win a Gold Medal on Canadian soil at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Frederic was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and told by doctors that he would not walk past the age of ten. With their celebration taking place on the world stage, Canadians were able to understand that the journey to win a gold medal was not only Alex's dream, but the dream of his brother. Alex has won numerous world championship titles and is the first freestyle skier to successfully defend a Gold Medal at two different Winter Olympic Games.

ALEXANDRE BILODEAU BIOGRAPHY

Alexandre Bilodeau is the first freestyle skier to successfully defend an Olympic Gold Medal. Today, Alexandre Bilodeau is part of a Capital Partners team as an investment advisor where Alexandre Bilodeau is actively involved in the evaluation of potential acquisitions, the due diligence process as well as the follow-up with portfolio companies. The work and determination that allowed Alexandre Bilodeau to make Olympic history allow him, even today, to excel in his new favorite field: the demanding world of finance. Competition in business is fierce. The obstacles are numerous, as are the failures. Alexandre Bilodeau holds a Specialized Graduate Diploma (DESS) in accounting from HEC Montreal, a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the John Molson School of Management at Concordia University as well as a professional accountant designation certification (CPA).

Previously, Alexandre served as an advisor in the audit team and subsequently as senior advisor in transactional services at KPMG. He has worked on numerous financial due diligence for acquisitions and sales with private and public companies in various sectors. A native of Rosemère, Quebec, Alexandre first fell in love with freestyle when he watched Jean-Luc Brassard compete in Lillehammer. Following in the footsteps of his idol, he became the top Canadian junior in freestyle at age 14. At age 17, he joined the national freestyle moguls team and went on to an astounding career through sheer hard work. In the 2008-2009 season, he won the world championship in dual moguls, as well as placing first in the World Cup. Nearly one year after his historic medal, he repeated the feat, grabbing the world champion title in the duals event. In the same year, Alex became the first Canadian to win a Gold Medal in a Canadian-hosted Olympics at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

After paring down his competition schedule to perfect his technique and concentrate on school, he made a convincing comeback for the 2012-2013 season, winning the World title in Norway and the National championship in Val-St-Côme, Quebec, both in parallel. In February 2014 he defended his title and won another Gold medal in Sochi, Russia – becoming the first Canadian in history to win back-to-back gold medals in consecutive winter games. He’s played an active role in numerous non-profit organizations, including the TELUS Foundation’s Community Investment Committee, Special Olympics Quebec, Children’s Health Canada, the MAB-Mackay Foundation and the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, in addition to sitting on the board of directors of the Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence.

Alex Bilodeau delivers presentations on for gold medalist determination and inspiration that motivates, educates and activates each audience to increase their performance to meet their goals and increase their performance. Whether he is motivating sales teams or inspiring leaders to manage their teams, Alex’s insights and story combines to create a life changing and memorable experience for attendees with practical insights they can implement in their lives right after the event.

Necessary Failures - Adapt, Adjust & Improve

  • What if entrepreneurs, employees and leaders were inspired by the same high performance standard as elite athletes to succeed at the highest levels. Champions come to training with one goal in mind: to be their best. To stand on the top step of the podium, you have to stand out, surpass yourself, train and above all believe in your mental and physical abilities. Much like the business world, athletes don’t “just make it” to become successful. Failure a major role in the journey. Without failure there are not lessons to learn, no areas to grow or new focuses developed for improvement. Those who have experienced failure often have an extra edge or a new found energy to build off for their next attempt. It’s when you fall that you learn, improve, refine and adjust. Knowing how to get up and focus in the right area is the key to success.

The Team Behind Champions

  • An Olympic medal is never won alone, it takes a whole team to be on top, and to stay there! Just like the success of a business. No champion can claim to have won an Olympic medal alone. It takes full synergy between athlete, trainers and their supporters to win a gold medal. Respect for the team is essential. Knowing how to surround yourself is knowing how to win. Bilodeau compelled our nation with his inspiring story of determination, and his personal story of the incredible support around him, including his ever smiling brother Frédéric, born with cerebral palsy.

Focus on the Journey

  • Is managing the uncontrollable possible? Stress kicks in when you give meaning to what you do. This is because you don’t know the outcome of what you care for. Why fight against the stress? Instead find a way to be comfortable within it and focus your energy on the journey. Champions train with one goal in mind: to be the best version of themselves. To be on top, you have to stand out, surpass yourself, train and above all believe in your mental and physical abilities. The outcome will result as the product of your journey.

Alex was a wonderful closing speaker. He was humble, poised, spoke from the heart, sincere and people really were impressed. There were even a few teary eyes. Frankly, it made for such a high feeling for the ending of our conference. It was a real lesson for me that people enjoy something for the ’heart’ as well as something for the ‘head’ at events they attend.
