Olympic Champions, Canadian Superstars, and Now Charismatic Speakers: Book Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir for Your Next Event
Fresh from two show-stopping gold medal wins at the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Games, the most decorated figure skaters in Olympic history have a lot to say about meeting singular goals. In conversation, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir deliver insights into their once-in-a-generation creative partnership, competitive fire, and artistic depth: everything they’re known and loved for.
In their deeply-felt, complex talks, Virtue and Moir discuss the thousands of hours that went into those historic gold-medal ice dances; the injuries, sacrifices, and difficult choices they each had to make, growing up in the rink or rehearsal studio when other teenagers would’ve been in school. They regret nothing, as their talks demonstrate. Within it, they learned to “adapt and conquer,” a mantra which they continue to push one another toward. As they describe in their frank and inspiring TEDxYouth Talk, while Virtue and Moir were once motivated to compete with each other, over years of athletic collaboration, ambition, difficulty, and triumph, they developed a method of preparation unique to their shared experience, which led them to master the sport and the art—no shortcuts.
