We’ve got a great team of talented, dedicated people around us but they were all too busy or too camera-shy to send their photos or blurbs.
Here are the four core team leaders.
Michel Chioini, President
Michel started his career in the web business 20 years ago as co-founder of Acme Multimedia in Montreal. He’s the creator and producer of Webcom, a leading web conference held yearly in Toronto, Montreal and Paris. His vision, passion and business links make him a perfect Pres. He’s also an excellent cook but please don’t ask for recipes.
Christian Joyal, VP Conceptual Development
Christian is a graphic designer by trade, and was the founder of two successful design firms before committing himself entirely to inpowr. Over the past seven years he’s worked closely with Serge Jeudy to help create this powerful human development tool. Christian also holds a 4th Dan black belt in karate, so watch out 😉
Serge Jeudy, Social Scientist, Olympic Coach
As a Master Olympic Coach, Serge translated complex theories of developmental psychology into concrete actions, helping several athletes take the podium. He’s a vital link between the world of research and the web. Like all great thinkers he spends much of his spare time deep in the forest with his pipe.
Kerry Fleming, Communication & Branding
20 years experience in advertising and communications, founder of his own small creative shop and a longtime friend and colleague of Christian, Kerry offers creative strategies and strategic creative solutions to help build the inpowr brand. Personal note: he talks way too much.
Claude Malaison, Globe Blogger
Claude is the ex-president and founder of the API (Association des professionnels en intranet). He teaches Interactive Communications at the University of Montreal and is an international speaker. Since 2005, he has been the President of ÉmergenceWeb, specializing in Interactive communications strategies and technologies. He also logs lots of clicks on his bike so clearly, he’s on a roll.
Nicolas Arseneault, Metrics Analyst
After X years in several senior eCommerce positions, Nicolas Arsenault went back to school and earned his Master’s in IT from H.E.C. in Montreal. From there, he helped develop eCommerce solutions for several major players including Cirque du Soleil, Bell and Orange. His love of analytics and numbers make him a perfect addition to the inpowr team and a constant challenge to his wife.
Sylvain Carle, Chief Geek
Sylvain Carle has been on the bleeding edge of new media and networked applications for 10+ years. He has held several senior positions conceptualizing, developing and managing more than 50 major internet projects. He writes for a number of industry newsletters, has been blogging for 6 years and multitasks to live.

inpowr is based on widely accepted theories of developmental psychology, more specifically, on the concepts of genetic psychology and dynamic metacognition.
Genetic psychology is a cognitive science that studies a person’s real andperceived experiences, as opposed to environmental factors. Metacognitive studies focus on the possibility of exploring consciousness by actively
reflecting on one’s experiences.
inpowr also incorporates the World Health Organization definition of health, as being a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being… By well-being, we are referring to the presence of a pleasant sensation of total satisfaction, and not to the absence of negative sensations (premise: health is not the absence of sickness).
The Self-Discovery Experience
By drawing upon one’s own experiences, a person constructs a definition of self. Similarly, by referring back to those experiences, the person can compare sensations that are perceived in the present, to similar sensations experienced in the past, through the process of differentiation.

It’s been a long time coming but we’re proud and super charged by the honor and by the chance to present inpowr.
We’ve got a 5-minute window to shout from on day 1, then we’ll be manning our booth, pumping hands, listening, learning and linking with all the great people who make web 2.0 the exhilarating world it is. What’s our goal? Beta testers, strategic partnerships, a bit of financing and tons of stimulating conversations. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.
