"Field Walker"

As a successful entrepreneur and international sales executive for more than 20 years, success has often blessed Michel Poulaert. His approach and authentic relationships with his clients is unique. Full of passion and enthusiasm, he manages his life, his business, his difficulties with optimism. But where does all this positive energy come from ?
When Michel was a successful sales executive, he also had ups and downs, he doubted himself, he often felt discouraged and misunderstood. His family-owned international business developed into a corporation then was bought out by a competitor in order to adapt to a changing global market including online sales. In each phase, he had to adapt...
Optimism, confidence and audaciousness inspired his life’s work. In turn, his positive outlook, communicative energy and genuine passion became contagious and a source of inspiration for others.

 
 

Creator of incredible opportunities !

Michel is considered a lucky man by many. However … what if “luck” was a an acquired skill and learnable by anyone ? An acquired talent that creates, discovers and welcomes opportunities ?
What is Michel’s secret ? What is the secret behind lucky people ? How do you transform a problem, a complicated situation into success ? Why do certain people seem to attract chance and success while others are afraid to try their luck ?
There is no doubt in Michel’s mind : luck is an acquired skill that can be developed, cultivated, provoked in order to become accessible to all who are willing to take a risk and make mistakes. The relationship that we have with failure is intrinsic to our success.
The latest research by neuroscientists and psychologists shows the veracity of this. The “biology of luck” does exist and its’ virtue is the enhancement and the amplification of your “luckiness”.

 
 

Audaciousness, optimism, failure and success

Just like everyone, Michel’s path to success was full of obstacles. With a positive state of mind, both optimistic and creative, he has shown, through his personal and professional path that it is possible to transform hardship into success.
During his conferences, Michel talks about how optimism is an energy that drives audacious decisions, that drives action which favors change, inspires innovation and feeds success.
Is there a difference between courage and audaciousness ?
Is optimism acquired or innate ?
The latest research in neuroscience shows that an “optimism biology” exists, that we all have the potential to develop it and that we can change our world outlook in order to take advantage of the opportunities and adventures that life puts in our path. Success, luck, the capacity to welcome change like new opportunities is available to everyone, they are written in our genes. Michel Poulaert give you the key to open the door.
