Canadian André Noël Chaker likes to keep busy. Since arriving in Finland in 1992 from Montréal, he has worked as a teacher, lawyer, singer, Senior Advisor to the President at the Finnish lottery and author.
Recent years have seen him add more feathers to his crowded cap. After his book, The Finnish Miracle, a theory about Finnishness and success, was released in 2011, its positive response saw him set out on the speakers’ circuit. And so, last year Speakers Forum’s Speaker of the Year award would make itself comfortable on his mantelpiece.
