Over the years, Stephan has been inspired by those who distinguish themselves and who master the art of excellence. His drive and his ‘zero-excuse’ attitude have helped him lead some of North America’s most successful sales teams. A true entrepreneur, Stephan is the founder of a Canadian distribution company that sells products and apparel in over 400 retail outlets nationwide. He is the author of a French book on taking charge of your life, which is a hit with readers and Québec media outlets alike.
Drawing on his experience, Stephan effectively illustrates the impact that one’s attitude can have on the final outcome when faced with change and uncertainty. He then makes parallels between his professional and personal experiences to help participants remember the importance of being adaptable in the workplace.
He reminds participants that challenges at work and at home should not translate into a negative outlook. As Stephan astutely observes: “It’s not what has happened to you that matters—it’s what you make of it.”
Stephan is the author of “Devenez maître de votre vie” published by Quebecor. The book is informative and seeks to transform the attitude of individuals in order to get them where they really want to be. His strategies are powerful and effective.
Stephan accepted the role of spokesperson for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada in order to contribute positively to the work that is being done. He also wanted to do his part in creating awareness about heart disease prevention and about the impact of heart disease on society.

The world is always evolving, learn how to respond and seize the opportunity!
Almost all organizations go through change at some point – learning how to respond to it and see the opportunities that come with it is therefore a strategic advantage that leaders need to possess. However, it can be difficult to implement those changes, both at the organization and employee level. Those that are unable or unwilling to make transitions and adopt new methods become a serious challenge for the overall growth and success. The question then is how to handle change in your organization so that the purpose is clear for everyone impacted? Whether you’re already going through the change or preparing for it, this keynote walks you through the practical strategies and tools needed to respond quickly to change.
Together we go further. Competitive markets make team collaboration essential.
Organizations need members with shared objectives, willing to overcome common obstacles and grow together. A corporate culture of collaboration and teamwork is therefore an essential building block for any organization. That’s exactly what this talk is designed for. It shows your staff how to translate individual talent and competencies into a concrete team strategy, to build effective teams who encourage each other when it’s tough and celebrate together when it’s a win. Not only your employees will benefit from the outcome, but your business partners, clients, and suppliers will also gain from a brand-new supportive mindset if invited to attend.
The Art of Leadership. Learn it, master it.
We all know that leaders aren’t born, they’re made. Leadership skills can be learned to a point where one seems to be born already all equipped with it.

It offers a framework that includes strategies for growing one’s influence and impact. Your teams will be among those who distinguish themselves with the art of excellence. The best organizations don’t rely on managers, they rely on leaders.
