Patrick is a Transformational and Accountability coach who inspires, motivates and empowers individuals to think BIG, be BOLD and ACT NOW!  Working with individuals who desire greater satisfaction in their personal and professional lives, but don’t know how to get started, Patrick uses his unique coaching approach to help them increase their accountability, productivity and the belief in their ability to succeed.

He is a motivational and inspirational speaker who shares his journey on coming to Canada from his native land of Burundi with $60.00 in his pocket and a dream. Before coming to Canada, Patrick was a successful radio host and a top ranked basketball coach in Burundi. But, upon his arrival to Canada, he found himself as a refugee living at homeless shelters and eating at soup kitchens.

During the darkest times, Patrick not only discovered himself but understood he had to put his unbreakable self-belief and determination to work.  In less than six months, Patrick’s strong conviction and tenacity took him from homelessness to being the radio host and Project Manager at radio 105.4 CHOQ FM in Toronto. Patrick began sharing his story. He believes that everyone can have and become everything they dream. His inspiring story and passion to serve has helped others achieve their goals despite their circumstances. Patrick divides his time between speaking, coaching and delivering workshops.

As he reflects on his life’s journey, Patrick credits specific key steps that helped him become the person he is today; a man of commitment, drive and enthusiasm who is determined to empower individuals to reach out and become the persons they always wanted to be in their personal and professional life.

Patrick’s story of unwavering conviction to not become a statistic was published in the Huffington Post on June 20, 2015. An article that reveals Patrick’s life as one of vision, self-belief and incredible determination to achieve one’s dreams.
