Simone Hoa is a well-known inspirational speaker, a fast-growth business strategist, trainer and coach in business and personal development producing rapid, concrete results with her company Passion 2 Success Inc. How she became an inspirational speaker at the sunset of her life is a dramatic and compelling story worth telling. Simone is Vietnamese and has a long career track behind her. Even though she lost her father when she was only 5, Simone is a world-wise businesswoman who has traveled the world, experienced four cultures and lived in three countries: Vietnam until the age of 19 where she completed her Baccalaureate in French; Australia where she won a scholarship to complete her university studies with three degrees in economics, education and library sciences and lived there for 18 years; and Canada where she migrated to join her mother and two sisters in 1985. In Montreal, she was an entrepreneur in the fashion industry (her passion at the time) but suffered a huge financial loss instigated by a deceptive partner who caused the demise of her business in 2004, resulting in the closing of her company. After five years of painful reconnecting and searching for her real identity through intense self-education in personal development, a course with Dale Carnegie and a strong involvement with Toastmasters International, she discovered her new passion in the art of public speaking. She then decided to take on a new, most challenging career at the age of 63 to become an inspirational speaker to use her voice to inspire and help people across the world to discover and have the courage to live their true passion and potential to achieve success and live the life of their dream. Realizing also the power of written words, Simone envisions leaving a heritage behind with her books: she is proud to be a contributing author to four books to be published in the U.S. with celebrities such as Jack Canfield, Deepak Chopra, Ken Blanchard, Dr. Warren Bennis, former U.S. Senator George Mitchell and this future bestseller with Brian Tracy. Simone is also the author of her own book to be published in 2012 titled “Success Has No Age: You Are Never too Young or too Old to Live your Passion.” Her fast success earned her the 2010 BEST GROWTH Trophy from The Montreal Leaders Boomers Entrepreneurs within her first year being a speaker, and her workshops at Toastmasters International Regional Conferences and Toastmasters International Leadership Institute are very well-loved. She is also a lifetime member of Worldwide Who’s Who and was just named its 2012 Executive, Professional and Entrepreneur of the Year in Motivational Speaking.
