The Story of the lebanese French adventurer, Antoine Aoun
After spending 18 years at the head of FIB (Silkscreen, gifts and promotional items), I sold it in 2007 to devote myself to what I was doing- fifteen minutes at a time – in the past decade, namely conferences on motivation.
Indeed, I am adventurer. My particular sign is that I am a paraplegic in a wheelchair following a war injury in Lebanon (I was born in Lebanon).
Very active, I love life, sports and adventure.
I have crossed a few different continents with my different bikes, due to the strength of my arms, a distance close to 25,000 Kms.
On my way, I try to share with others my sense of combativeness and explain that life does not end with a detail (the word can shock). My motto “Living my dreams and not dreaming my life.”
For me, the solution to disability was above all to affirm my existence and do not give up. I assume that I do not necessarily have a choice in the moment and that I probably would choose in time.
Today I am at the head of “Phoenicia Communication” where I coach professionals and individuals. I also as a speaker continues to give seminars about access motivational and acceptance of change.
I also wrote a book about human potential through my course with the title :
“My Life In 3D”

In 1984, following a project Scouts of France, including myself, we have managed to develop a special Tandem for paraplegic. We have come with this new bike, which was unlike any other, nearly 700 km in the central massif. Following this little challenge I discovered that the adventure is part of me. And since the projects and courses have increased.
