Vital Germaine is a team development consultant, entrepreneur, memorable speaker, top-selling author of FLYING WITHOUT A NET, and former Cirque du Soleil performer/team captain.
He is often referred to as a modern-day Renaissance Man. Previous credits include: corporate event producer, fine artist, choreographer and creative director of theatrical events and shows around the world ranging from Shanghai to Fresno CA.
Vital is a Belgian National with a British accent, born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, who got to live the American dream by way of a French Canadian circus in Las Vegas (Cirque du Soleil) - his unique background makes him, memorable, fun and of course "engaging".
"I try to live life to the fullest, regardless of circumstance - all with and open, expansive, flexible mindset, the premise of my approach to life and work."
He leverages the power of imagination and creativite ingenuity to better his life, inspiring those around him to do the same. He remains forever curious and childlike with a passion to discover, explore and step out of his comfort zone in the name of personal development – free to laugh, work hard, play and have fun in the process.
Vital founded ENGAGE as a result of a life and love of inspiring others to live happier lives and to achieve their dreams. His character and infectious spirit personify his name VITAL: full of energy, lively.
Though born in Africa, he was raised in England (London), before moving back to Belgium at sixteen where he excelled in sports. He went as far as playing soccer for the National Indoor Youth Team before exchanging his ahtletic passion and talents for the performing arts.
He moved to New York in 1991 with nothing more than a dream in his pocket. Two years later, and against all odds, he ran away with the Circus, becoming a member of Cirque du Soleil’s original cast of the ground-breaking Mystere in Las Vegas for 5 years. He then joined the US tour of Quidam.
While on tour, a tragic injury ended his Cirque du Soleil career. Vital went back to school (UNLV and CSN) to study business. He started an entertainment company (RME Troupe, Inc) in 2006. RME produced large-scale events for such companies as Microsoft, IBM and Canon to name a few and worked with celebrities like Jay Leno and the legendary Stevie Wonder.
In addition, he boasts a long track-record of leadership experience and insight.
By consolidating and structuring his rich life experiences, they have become transferable resources that shorten the learning and growth curve for his audiences and workshop participants.
