    The Difference is Focusing on What's In Front of You with Thierry Dupuis

    In this episode of The Difference Podcast, we have a conversation with Thierry Dupuis. What started as a conversation about planning for retirement, quickly evolved into so much more than that. Thierry has such an insightful perspective on life as a public safety professional and how that blends with personal passions. Although Thierry is currently enjoying life as a successful real estate agent, he continues to shape the future of policing through his work on executive boards, including VCPI's board of directors.
