The lesson we can all learn from one simple Oscar moment! #leadership 
During the Oscars telecast last, the world was caught off guard. If you're not sure what the fuss is all about, just watch and listen ....I know ... you didn't expect that did you!Whether you like her music or not, we all have an opinion of Lady Gaga. That opinion is, most likely, informed by the way she dresses; the theatrics she uses in her performances; and the eccentric way she acts in public. She's got a massive following and her style of "p...

I make Minnesota my home and, to be honest, the past few weeks have been really cold. I can't speak for everyone but I think most who live here would agree that this cold spell - albeit nothing like what we experienced last year - is getting old. When it's cold outside it makes it easier to put ...

For the past several years I've taken a cue from +Chris Brogan and selected #ThreeWords to guide the year.  Here's the list for 2015.
I'm glad this year is over, or almost over.When I look back at 2104, I have mixed feelings. Don't get me wrong - the past year was filled with successes and great moments but in many ways, I feel like it was the year where I spent most of my time "on the sidelines."I'm not usually the guy who sits on the sidelines; in fact, I pride myself on being a catalyst and someone who, regardless of how many balls I'm juggling, figures out a way to get it a...

This past weekend, Jeff Johnson was endorsed by the Minnesota GOP as their candidate for Governor. I spoke with him for +The Conversation Hub podcast back in December 2012 - here's a replay of our conversation.
Following the 2012 presidential election, I had an opportunity to be in conversation with Jeff Johnson. At that time, he was representing Republicans in Minnesota on the Republican National Committ...

Story
Tagline
Musician || Host of The Conversation Hub || Catalyst
Introduction
First and foremost I am Canadian and French is my first language. I am very proud of my heritage and it’s a big part of who I am. I tend to describe myself as follows: Husband and father of 3, change agent, catalyst, composer, worship leader, independent recording artist, God follower, hockey fan and social media evangelist.

I love to engage people in meaningful conversation and to help others think about the possibilities. There is nothing more rewarding to me than helping make a difference in someone’s life. For that reason, my current work (development officer for a health care foundation) aligns perfectly with that philosophy.

I am always thinking about the next opportunity. For me the possibilities are endless and my goal in life is to live an abundant life.

The best thing that has ever happened to me is Up With People. UWP gave me the chance to travel the world, experience new cultures and, most importantly, introduced me to Heather – my wife of 17 years. She brings joy to my life and together we are blessed with three amazing children.

I've released 2 cds of original music: Until Tomorrow Comes (2009) and Simple Things (2011).

I am also the host of The Conversation Hub weekly podcast
Bragging rights
Since September of 2010, I've completed 4 half-marathons, a full marathon and a handful of other races shorter races! I feel great and have lost 60+ pounds!
