From its creativity, teamwork and showmanship, there is a lot to be learnt from the Performing Arts. Today’s mastermind focuses on Cirque du Soleil’s Vice President Bernard Petiot. He has been part of the Cirque du Soleil management team for over 19 years, and prior to that he was the coach at Gymnix de Montréal from 1980-1998, where he contributed to the development of some of Canada’s best gymnasts. He has also coached the Canadian Olympic Team, through 13 World Championships and 2 Olympic Games.

Tune in to learn more about how the largest contemporary circus producer in the world celebrates human potential. Also find out also about their continual quest for improvement, the role of origin stories, the power of ‘showtime’ – and with 45 nationalities performing together, their true secret sauce is diversity.
