He is a dynamic personality who for over three decades has studied the science of achievement and self-worth, sharing his knowledge first hand with people who needed it the most.
As a child, J. Paul, his siblings and mother were physically and emotionally abused by his alcoholic father. In school, he became conditioned to believe he was worthless and that he would never amount to anything. He had no confidence and self-prophesized failure. That all changed in grade 7 when he discovered he could change his destiny and made it his mission to turn HIS life around. J. Paul proceeded to get his dream job and fulfill the promise he had made to himself as a boy; to arrest people like his father. Once he became a police officer, J. Paul set the bar even higher for himself and went on to become a subject matter expert as a Hostage Negotiator, Detective, International Peace Keeper, and instructor. The many specialized areas he worked in provided him with first-hand experience on how to help, understand and influence others. He is credited for having saved countless lives and for providing hope and direction to those who had lost it.
Today, J. Paul is the proud father of two incredible adult daughters, continues to lecture globally, was recently featured as a featured speaker at the 2015 TEDx Toronto conference TEDx J. Paul Nadeau October 2015 and provides live on-screen consultation to several major news networks as a hostage and terrorist expert.

Paul is now a much sought after keynote and motivational speaker whose experience and understanding of human behaviour and influence without manipulation is welcomed by businesses and audiences of all walks of life.
