Jean Pouliot, head mentor for the Rimouski Cell
“The people I work with when I volunteer bring me so much. I would not be the person I have become without this interaction. This is why, in all humility, I wish to pass on my values to other entrepreneurs, values such as respect, mobilisation, integrity, rigour and professional development. Mentorship, for me, is listening, questioning and sharing with the aim of helping business leaders to progress.”
