Blandine Soulmana, author and speaker
There are times in life when we need an energy transfusion. In her testimonial lecture, Blandine demonstrates, with vivacity and humour, that it is possible to take action in the face of hardship. Her stories are a true transfusion of courage, resilience and positivism. Yes, we must believe and hold on because, although the worst sometimes happens, a light can also emerge from the darkness.

Renee Wilkin, singer
Renee Wilkin became known to the general public through the show La voix II (2014) and was crowned a finalist on Marc Dupré’s team. With 2 albums to her credit, “L’amour, La guerre” and the Soul67 cover album, Renee Wilkin can definitely get the crowd going! In October 2019, she opens up to her audience by addressing personal and sensitive topics and launches a message of strength, hope and confidence with her album, “Briser la chaîne”.
