His passion for public speaking and self-improvement has led him to be member of Toastmasters International at Concordia and Bell. At Concordia Toastmasters, he occupied the position of Treasurer (VP Finance) for two terms. At Bell Toastmasters, he was one of the first funding members. He also volunteered for Career Management Services (CMS) at Concordia where he was able to gain valuable experience in HR by leading workshops and helping in different Career events organised by CMS.
Firm believer in the power of education, he enjoys intellectual growth either through school settings or personal growth programs like Club d’Investisseurs Immobiliers du Quebec where he graduated as real estate investor. Furthermore, he is an active ambassador for men’s health with Movember at his workplace (Bell) where he has been raising funds and awareness for the cause with his colleagues. The passion for men’s health started almost 3 years ago, when Alain’s had to do a surgery for severe sleep apnea. Since then, he is not wearing the machine like he used to do every night and is committed to be an advocate for men’s health.
