Conference As a professional drummer
Steph has developed many different skills to succeed in the music business and has had the chance to meet many successful people from varied walks of life. As a drum teacher, during his lessons, he realized that the challenges were not only musical but, in fact, were mainly personal challenges. Stephane started coaching his students to help them work on themselves more to become better artists. He took the same approach during drum clinics.
The clinics became akin to motivational speeches and presentations and Steph became inspired to bring the concept to non-drummers as well, believing it could help people in any field of endeavor. His presentations are based on different topics such as finding your passion, setting goals, getting yourself focused, becoming achievers, taking action, growing self-esteem, increasing confidence, self-empowerment, and tools to create positive habits. Steph uses a lot of personal experiences and stories from the road in order to help illuminate his point. The conference is offered to schools, business enterprises, and private events as well.
