The previous life and career of Hélène Montreuil

A long time ago, when the Earth was green, I am born under the sign of the Gemini and of the Dragon.

When I was young, I have studied law, management and industrial relations in Quebec City, Common Law in Winnipeg and Ottawa and management and economics in Paris.

After that, I started working as a lawyer, management consultant and systems analyst.

I had also been an associate in a restaurant, a grocery and a real estate company.

Then I started a career as professor of management and law while pursuing a parallel career as a speaker in finance and banking.

Later, I returned to the practice of law as a lawyer and management consultant.

Furthermore, I have written many books and articles :

Law, Persons and Business

Business organisation and dynamics - a systematic approach

Introduction to business law

Business organisation and dynamics

The transfer of a pension plan in the banking industry

Removing barriers in financial institutions in Québec

The life and career of Hélène Montreuil

I am a part-time professor in law, ethics and management at the University of Quebec in Rimouski and a lawyer in private practice.

I am also the vice-president of my trade union as a teacher.

I was also lawyer at the Council for administrative justice

I was also a radio hostess and a member of many boards of directors.

Finally, I was also the president of a local trade union of the Quebec Public Service Trade Union.

To relax, I practise many sports such as swimming, underwater diving, badminton, volley-ball, tennis, softball, walking and even more, I like trying new sports.

I also love participating in social activities like going to see a film or a play, visiting a museum, walking in a park or on a beach, etc.

In brief, I like to practise all types of sport and participate in all social activities.

I am curious about anything and everything; that is why I am often asking questions.

With my blue eyes, my long blonde hair, my classic allure, my double personality and my bubbling but gentle personality, I am a lovely one.

Some of my friends call me the «Princess of Gemini and the Daughter of the Dragon».
