Topics – Success
DESTINED TO SUCCEED® as a Team
One For All and All For One
It is part of the Human Nature to interact with others. But why is it so challenging to be so effective in doing so? I believe we are destined to succeed as teams. But what if we have also been programmed for failure at this level too? Our sense of survival, security, ego and motivation for recognition are all great personal success motivators but can be alarming barriers to our success as a team. Create durable synergy, improve communications, morale, attitude and help retain your best employees. With his trademark humorous style, Marc Andre Morel shares inspiring and unforgettable metaphors and ideas. Memorable event and lasting impact guaranteed !
DESTINED TO SUCCEED® in a Changing World
Everything changes and that’s a good thing. Human beings have survived over the millenniums thanks to their innate ability to adapt. The business world and our work environment is no exception. This program presents the advantages – and the necessities – of change. Using convincing analogies, help your employees get rid of their fear of losing the known – the real challenge – to put their ego aside and build their confidence to become comfortable with the uncomfortable! Memorable event and lasting impact guaranteed !
DESTINED TO SUCCEED® in Business
Keeping Clients For Life
Created for a clientele or an audience working in sales or customer service, entrepreneurs and independent workers, this program offers you more ideas than you can use in a year, preparing your organization and people for the new way of doing business. Customers pay more attention to the way your product is sold than to the product itself. The number of salespeople is decreasing dramatically but they should be making more money.

DESTINED TO SUCCEED® with Balance
How to Breakthrough Without Breaking Down
Did you know that 54% of workers will suffer from professional exhaustion once in their life-time? And that numbers are increasing? Based on his own personal experience and enriched with his research on the matter, this high energy session of a serious subject is delivered on a light and humoristic note. Help your employees rediscover the sense of success and garner ideas of how to do achieve their best without burning out. Memorable event and lasting impact guaranteed !!
DESTINED TO SUCCEED
The premise of this unique and thought provoking keynote is that we are destined to succeed, that we all possess what is required to succeed in our personal and professional lives, that we are also responsible for our success, through our attitude and behavior. Destined to succeed, yes, but maybe we have been programmed for failure! We all have been overwhelmed with messages such as:
“You must work hard to succeed.” “In life you’ve got to make sacrifices.” “You can’t have everything you want in life,” “Stop dreaming in color.” “Life is hard.” All kinds of destructive messages influence our actions and ultimately, the results in our personal and professional lives. In order to answer how we can get rid of such barriers to our success and realize our full potential, here is what I propose for this keynote:
1- Do things differently – As Aristotle said more than 2400 years ago, “if you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you always got”. Using the striking analogy of a banana peeled from the right side, the message is that in order to have the best results, we must first and foremost look at things from a different angle. Get out of the comfort zone, dismantle our old habits and create new ones in order to bring together the realization of our full potential (business, career or personal).
2- Do what you are – A singer sings, a bird flies, a manager manages, a salesperson sells! Are you in the right place? This is the starting point. Not respecting your nature has a cost. Enormous costs for health and productivity. Not doing what you are is to swim against the current. It isn’t only draining, it’s also not enjoyable.
3- Do what you love and love what you do –Did you know that, according to a survey, two out of three workers hate their jobs? We can’t be truly happy unless we love what we are doing. And also, how can you achieve long-term excellence under these conditions? As well as being drained, it ends up affecting our self-esteem, health, teamwork and results.
4- Become comfortable with the uncomfortable – What often holds back today’s human being is the famous sense of security, this comfort zone we don’t want to leave. Whether it is to seek out bigger clients or take on new responsibilities, a new culture, etc., we don’t move, we don’t risk, we don’t dream. We try to do better while staying in the same sandbox. Impossible and draining! Therefore, instead of developing new skills, it is better to develop individual courage. Learn to be confident and experience fear while making the jump into the void. The price to pay for security is insecurity. The leader of today and tomorrow is comfortable with the uncomfortable.
5- Fish until there is water – This is a metaphor used by one of the greatest builders of Quebec, Édouard Simard of Sorel (Marine Industries) in the middle of the last century. He was answering a journalist who asked him to explain his success. Don’t stop fishing when there are no fishes, but when there is no water in the lake! Perseverance is not valued as much as it should be. We want everything now and we lose our sense of conquest and tenacity.
Other stories of courage, perseverance and success enrich this conference, making it a profound, humorous, inspirational, motivational and memorable experience!
DESTINED TO SUCCEED® IN BUSINESS
Keeping Your Customers For Life
The way consumers buy evolves and the demands on sales and marketing teams call on us to be increasingly prepared if we want to stay in the game. We have been programmed to work hard or harder at picking at the same pie. But what if the solution for expanding and growing our business was to go where nowhere has gone before? Then, we could truly say that we are destined to succeed in business and can keep clients for life! Here’s what I suggest:
1- Changing The Way Of Doing Business – Customers change, as do their purchasing practices. They put more importance on the way the product or service is sold than on the product or service itself; the number of sales professionals is shrinking – an estimated decrease of 50 %. Those who will remain will earn more. What can you do to ensure your spot under the sun? I suggest creating value as well as an experience for your clients, to go smaller, closer, sharper and deeper.
2- Becoming Comfortable With The Uncomfortable – What often holds back today’s human being and business person is our sense of security, our comfort zone we don’t want to leave. Whether it is to seek out bigger clients or take on new responsibilities, we get immobilized, we do not risk and we have stopped dreaming big! We try to do better while staying in the same sandbox. Therefore, instead of adding to our already overloaded skill set, maybe it would be a better idea to develop individual courage, to relearn to be confident and experience fear while making the jump into the void. The price to pay for security is insecurity. The leader of today and tomorrow is comfortable with the uncomfortable.
3- Work On New Moves – Examples of Great Achievers like Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan who have succeeded by constantly changing their game to keep at the head of the game and competitors behind. Learn what the Great ones do to keep on top!
4- Talent or Discipline – The best Sales Performers are NOT the ones with the best skills! What is the difference between a player with talent and one with a system or ritual? Anyone can be a top performer, learn from great examples!
5- You Decide! – Of all qualities required to succeed in Business, attitude (know to be) is the single most important. Why? Because it cannot be taught nor bought. The individual decides for himself or herself. With a simple to use and remember formula, learn how we have minimum 50% of control over ALL results in our personal and professional lives! Thought-provoking and life changing!
6- Why Our Customers Leave Us – Some factors are beyond our control, but the majority are not. The main reason that we lose our customers: Indifference. We take them for granted, we head off in search of others instead of pursuing our relationship with the clients we have, who know and trust us.
7- Give And You Shall Receive – The best way to make a difference for your customers is to give, to offer, to serve. To succeed is to serve. Better yet, to do so in innovative ways. In this keynote I will propose enough good ideas that your sales team will not have the time to use all in one year!
