ALL ABOUT CONFIDENCE!
Trust is the engine of all achievement. Whether in our personal life, sports, the Olympics, business, the economy, the stock market, the couple, etc., without confidence, everything collapses!
But what is confidence? Where is it from? How can we acquire it, keep it, regain it?
How come some have it and some don’t? Is it innate? Is it accessible only to a privileged few? Everyone probably has already asked these questions!
Not having it pushes us away from important, even essential things, makes us hesitate, makes us anxious, makes us criticize and prevents us from moving forward.
Confidence in who we are, in what we do, in those around us, in our dreams and in our vision of the future can change our lives.
It is the same for trust in our products, our customers, our employer, our team and our suppliers.
Guy Bourgeois, speaker, has worked on self-confidence since 1992. He knows the human principles that lead people to have more self-confidence. Through hiskeynotes and trainings, he has helped tens of thousands of people overcome their fears and take their personal development to the next level.
This keynote is the result of all his years of observing and teaching to those who thought “not to be capable” and who became so.
Whether it’s to apply for another position, speak in a meeting, go see new clients, get out of lethargy, reach a higher level of success, go into business or even lose weight, we all need to have confidence to move to the full power of our potential.
ALL ABOUT MOTIVATION!
Nowadays, one cannot be satisfied with an average performance, especially when it comes to sport or business goals. In order to make your way forward, you must achieve a higher level of excellence. In his ‘‘Fully motivated’’ conference, Guy Bourgeois addresses with humor the following topics:
- How can we constantly do our best?
- Why do we experience ups and downs and what purpose do they serve?
- How can we keep on raising our self-motivation level?
- How can we motivate others to surpass themselves?
- What kind of attitude experts adopt in their area of business?
- And much more…
By the end of this epic conference, you will strongly believe that you are truly the corner stone of your own success. No more excuses! Take charge!
IT COULD BE WORSE!
Inspired by its best-seller of the same name, this conference can also become a show, if need be.
Such conference has been performed as a general audience show in more than 20 cities and it is ideal for convention opening or closing. The ‘‘It could be worse’’ conference will put everyone at ease… even the most reluctant participants!
Thanks to his outstanding dynamism, Guy Bourgeois, speaker, takes you on a humorous and emotional journey in the world filled with stress and negativity. If you believe that we live in a world where everything goes wrong, where we can’t trust anyone and where life is an ordeal filled with pitfalls, the ‘‘It could be worse’’ conference will definitely help you change your mind and start seeing the positive side of life.
THE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
How about learning that success can come your way if you do exactly what it takes? What is the recipe for success?
It’s comforting to know that the energy we put into a project, our career, our life, will ensure our success. Feeling suspicious? This is perhaps the core of the problem.
Regardless the area or industry, it is quite difficult for most people to reach greater heights, because they simply don’t know how to get there. Thus, there is a blueprint for success. Moreover, if you have all the right ingredients and you follow the required steps, success will be on its way!
Your future success entails a complex and balanced combination of skills, abilities, effort, energy, practice, positive thinking, and mental toughness. Through his conference called: ‘‘the recipe for success’’, Guy will address all the above-mentioned topics and explain how such ‘‘recipe’’ can boost your performance, both personal and professional, so you can reach higher levels.
To BE AT THE VERY TOP!
Ever thought about being the best?
At what stage of your career are you? Are you currently evolving in your comfort zone? Or do you feel like you reached a professional dead-end, due to various circumstances? Is that indeed the case? The vast majority of people tend to settle for their current position. Nothing is wrong with that… But ask yourself if this is what you really want.
On the other hand, you expect from others to remain on top of their game. You assume that your favorite comedian will perform his best show ever or your all-time favorite actor will play a key part in a movie. Without knowing it, you worship athletes that reached their peak performance and you quickly lose interest when they’re not at their best. Let’s pretend you’re an athlete… Would your fans worship or neglect you? Tough question!
In his new conference called: ‘‘To be at the very TOP’’, Guy Bourgeois will motivate you to reach higher levels. Based on the observation of thousands of people he met throughout his career and the study of peak performers, he will show you that absolutely everyone can get to the top. Do you want to be at your very best? Do you want to be a LEADER or the one and only expert in a certain domain? This is basic human nature and such feelings are normal.
You were meant to be on top of your game! It would be wrong to think otherwise or to presume that circumstances or unfavourable context keep you from reaching the top. You and your excuses are the only ones to blame.
With a few anecdotes and practical examples, Guy will motivate and give you the tools you need to get back on your feet and reach for the top. Be prepared to be up and running!

HOW TO MOBILIZE YOUR TEAM
We often hear the expression: ‘‘Be a LEADER’’! Whether they are political, religious, ideological, financial or military leaders, their main role is to lead a group of people to the victory. What constitutes a leader? How do we become one? Is that an innate trait or something we can learn? What are the criteria for becoming a leader? In his brand new conference called: ‘‘How to mobilize your team’’, Guy will address the personality traits that most great leaders have in common and will shatter the myth that some people come to this world with such innate traits. Everyone is capable of motivating others if they abide by the main leadership rules.
If you are an entrepreneur, a manager, an executive officer, or a director, you must learn how to become a leader who will guide others, share their vision, inspire, and know how to reprimand. That’s what this conference is all about!
SELLING WITH PASSION
The market has evolved and so did consumers. Nowadays, they think before buying. Furthermore, because of online business, salespersons now face increased competition and must rely on their sales skills and products, mutual confidence, optimal customer service as well as sales techniques in order to be successful. With more than 43 years of sales experience, Guy is the absolute BEST speaker that can teach you how to ‘‘Sell with passion’’.
That’s right! High-pressure selling is over. The concept of selling has become a development matter leading to: following up and offering higher quality or complementary products to existing clients.
Furthermore, the salesperson’s role is to find new customers. These days, they simply cannot sit back and wait for customers to show up. They have to be proactive and prospect, solicit, cold call, and use all possible networks in order to succeed.
This is the main goal of such conference!
SUCCESSFULLY COACH YOUR SALES STAFF
Your sales reps will never go further than the route you made available for them or higher than the ladder you put up before them. The sales manager’s role is quite similar to the one of a hockey coach as they set the goals to reach, provide tools, create a favourable environment, and help overcoming challenges. With his conference called: ‘‘Successfully coach your sales staff’’, Guy will provide you with helpful advice to help you become an ultra-performing, involved, and inspiring sales manager.
His topics will include: How do you set your staff with challenging goals? How do you supervise, coach, and support them? How and when should you set up sales meetings? When and how do you organize selling contests? How do you manage counter-performance and negative leaders?

By the time he was 30, he founded a food distribution company with several associates and took care of the solicitation of over 10,000 customers.
In 1992, he sold the company and became a motivator and instructor, thereby achieving a lifelong goal: to do what Jean-Marc Chaput did. Since then, he enchants audiences and performs over 200 conferences each year.
In 1999, after a long battle with cancer, he created the Guy Bourgeois Foundation which has been designed to fight against cancer and improve the comfort of patients who receive chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatments. To date, his foundation gave over $130,000 to oncology clinics throughout the province of Quebec.
As a radio and television chronicler, Guy also writes articles in numerous newspapers and magazines. Furthermore, he is the author of the following best-sellers: ‘‘Kilo Motivé’’, ‘‘Ça pourrait être mieux’’, ‘‘Ça pourrait être pire’’, ‘‘Comment vendre sa salade’’ as well as ‘‘L’étincelle de génie’’ and is the co-author of books called: ‘‘Kilo Cardio 3’’, ‘‘Kilo Cardio 2’’, and ‘‘Kilo Cardio 1’’, in collaboration with Isabelle Huot and Josée Lavigueur. These books were published by Les Éditions de l’Homme. He also produced numerous motivation and training CDs and DVDs.
He is considered as a motivation and sales expert and impresses with his eloquence, sense of humor, and simplicity. Moreover, his speech inspires people and spurs to action.
