First posts : September 7, 2010

Robert Savignac is a North American speaking French. He currently lives in Canada.
Business manager, and president of a network made up of 10 bookstores: Robert is the publisher of 159 works. Trained as an accountant, he was VP Finance for an important translation firm in Toronto. He carried out many management and business organization mandates. He also drew up many communication plans for the Web.
He suffered a burnout at the end of the 90s, then chose a new career path in information technology. He created management applications for various bars and restaurants. This second career as a manager in Montréal's Gay Village meant that on a daily basis, he dealt with setbacks, caused by prostitution, drug addiction, alcohol, and compulsive gambling.
These experiences and his work in the field were a major turning point in his life. In the years that followed, he became an ardent and passionate advocate of e
quity, harm reduction and reintegration.
