It’s been a time of Olympic celebrations as Sochi 2014 celebrates the best in winter sports and achievement. Hard to believe that it was only four short years ago that Vancouver was in the world spotlight showing off our city and its people. Reliving the moments was all part of the theme at the recent XL Leadership Summit opening night reception event. Sponsored by the TwentyTen Group, the night was filled with the who’s who of Vancouver 2010 as everyone remembered the good times and laughed at the fun. The evening also marked the anniversary of the 2010 Opening Ceremonies as John Furlong took to the stage to share some rare behind-the-scenes stories. There was also a special announcement in store as TwentyTen Group founder Andrea Shaw took to the stage to say that the Olympic flame would be lit that night, and every other night, that Canadians won gold in Sochi. Go Canada!
