Five or ten years from now, you will find yourself living in a totally new and shocking world. Things are going to be drastically different. Many big companies will shut their doors and fold.

If you can read French, Le Nouvelist describe the reaction from my presentation at hotel Montana better than I can. I'm the third person from the right. Here's the link http://lenouvelliste.com/lenouvelliste/article/126985/Le-Salon-des-entrepreneurs-honore.html

During times of disruptive change in the workplace, focus on your social capital. Friendships and relationships.

Introduction

Motivational Speaker Rene Godefroy is known as the world's leading authority on possibility discovery. His motivational messages inspire audiences to step out of their comfort zone, embrace change with a positive attitude in order to discover what's possible for them.

Born in a tiny and remote village in Haiti, Rene Godefroy was an impoverished child tormented by illnesses. Abandoned by his father and left behind while his mother sought work in the city of Port-au-Prince, Rene survived primarily on breadfruit and the occasional rare fish he caught with a string and hook.

He arrived in the US with only five dollars, two shirts and one pair of pants housed in a tattered briefcase. And, he did not speak any English. While many are complaining about their circumstances, Rene saw a huge opportunity to seize the American Dream.

He worked as a janitor and washed cars on the streets of Miami. While a janitor, Rene dug in the trashcans to find letters. Late at night he would write and read out aloud the letters in order to learn and write English. 

Eventually he made his way to Atlanta, Georgia where he landed a job as a doorman at Atlanta’s upscale Renaissance Waverly Hotel. He continued to teach himself English.  Rene would scan the back seat of the cars he was parking to discover what books his guests were reading. 

Sure enough, he found and bought lots of awesome books. Every night, he would stay up late to study those books. "No one should live in a country of plenty empty. The US was the Promised Land for me when I was a poor kid in Haiti. I have not been disappointed", said Rene.

Today, he's one of America's most sought after motivational speakers. His "No Condition is Permanent" inspires people the world over to kick their excuses goodbye, embrace change and step out of their comfort zone in order to discover what's possible for them. 

Fortune 500 companies such as Aflac, Coca Cola, AT&T, and Verizon Wireless seek out Rene as the motivational speaker to help them boost the morale of their teams. His motivational message is very simple: No Condition is Permanent!

As a humanitarian, Rene's vision is to inspire millions in remote places that are living lives of resignation. As he often says, "Success leaves its trail everywhere. Just follow the trail persistently. If it's possible for one, it's possible for everyone anywhere!"
