Gerard Fournier is executive producer of the highly acclaimed Quest TV series, renowned for blending eye-opening insights and words of wisdom from the world’s most influential thinkers and authors. Each of the twelve separate Quest programs concerns itself with the deeper issues important in people’s lives today. The series has consistently garnered critical acclaim as the best of its genre for its in-depth approach to contemporary life issues. The latest production is “Quest for Success", featuring the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Richard Branson and Russell Simmons, et al. It is an extraordinary journey on that most profound of human longings, the search for happiness and fulfillment, and the wisdom requisite to finding it.

Fournier’s involvement with the Quest series grew out of and fed into his own search for meaning and clarity in a world filled with so many conflicting voices and values. Research for the series gradually took on a life of its own as Fournier delved deeper and deeper into the collected wisdom of the ages, past and present. Gradually as a result of his searching, there emerged the germ of an idea to synthesize all that he was absorbing into a book that would illuminate and encapsulate for others the gems he had uncovered.

Three years later, "Sex, Lies and Truth - A Very Short History" (available on, is the result.

Fournier has also worked as a journalist and a lifestyle columnist — traveling to over 80 countries in the process — and has written for a television dramatic series. A baby boomer himself, his formal education includes a degree in psychology, and the study of three different martial arts disciplines. He is married to soul-mate Lili Fournier, the director of the Quest series, and has two grown children.
