Julien has been a key player in starting over 10 companies and organizations and is often referred to as a serial entrepreneur. A proud Acadian from Dieppe, New Brunswick, a small French community in Atlantic Canada, Julien is now based in Ottawa where he is raising his two young daughters Naomi and Rowyn with his best friend and wife Bridget. Julien’s love to travel has been realized through having currently visited 37 countries, while his goal is to visit 100 countries around the world and dreams of being a global citizen.
Along with travelling, Julien is a sports junkie and avid reader. He runs, plays tennis, golf and hockey. By 2017 Julien wants to have watched an NHL game in every rink across the league. He’s only got 5 more to go! He also aspires to own an NHL hockey team one day. Since 2012, Julien has read a minimum of one book per week, which has not only fuelled his passion for business mastery, entrepreneurship and leadership but also allows him to impart cutting edge trends to his clients. Julien is a man on a mission when it comes to reading. At his current pace, he will have completed 500 books on what he calls this science of success (Business, Leadership and Psychology) by July 2017.
One of Julien’s favourite mottos in life is be unreasonable. The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. You will also often hear him saying: “If these are the cards that were dealt to me then bring it on!”
