Founding Member of the Les Brown
Maximum Achievement Team

Rich Fontaine is a Certified Speaker with the Les Brown Maximum Achievement Team and an AAMCB nominated Best Selling Author who has dedicated his life to help others find the purpose in theirs. 

Rich Fontaine started with very humble means, born the son of two lovely parents from the small island of Haiti, who did not have much in the ways of finances but had abundance in love. Instilled in him to always work hard and walk an ethical and moral path. Though his family always raised him with character he still fell down the wrong path, getting into trouble and fistfights at school. He left for college to find a better way but instead found himself flunked out with no aims or goals, but through great study and research of all the greatest and most successful people in the world, reading hundreds of books he found the answers to success and a proper mindset. 

He ended up graduating with a Bachelors in Civil Engineering from one of the most prominent universities in the world (University of Central Florida), became a published author, has spoken on stage with International Speakers such as Les Brown and Shradha WTB and has become CEO of the Power of Self Entertainment Group providing access to other inspiring speakers to large events and venues while providing organizations the best talent in their areas or abroad.  

Rich has spoken in large arenas, community events, corporate offices, studios, small businesses, public city events and at Toast Masters International. His skills as a speaker are unmatched, mixing stories, comedy, light-heartedness, and passion into every talk he does. Please review Testimonial Page.
