Who are we?

Formax Formation Motivation is above all a family story. Founded in 1992 by Guy Bourgeois and his wife Myriam Lapointe, Formax Formation Motivation is a firm specializing in motivation and tailor-made courses.

A professional speaker, Guy Bourgeois has been designing and presenting nearly 200 conferences a year for over 30 years. In 2011, in response to growing customer demand, Myriam and Guy decided to launch the FORMAX Speaking Team. Always keen to preserve the family spirit, they offered one of their two daughters responsibility for this new division. Marilyn, who has a bachelor's degree in public relations from UQAM, gladly accepts the challenge and brings a breath of fresh air to the company.

And 10 years later, their other daughter Ariane joined the team. With a bachelor's degree in business administration from ESG - UQAM, she has contributed to the development of nautical tourism in Quebec for nearly 10 years. It is with enthusiasm that she accepts the position of development and outreach of the company, in collaboration with Marilyn.
