Underutilized employees will begin to shine.
Not all leaders are immediately noticeable. Joel is a recognized expert at uncovering hidden talent.

With the tools Joel provides as a keynote speaker, top-notch hidden talent will be discovered, fully leveraged and become the future inspirational leaders of the company.
Participants will leave with an actionable commitment.

The Benefits of Investing in Joel as Your Speaker
You will benefit from extreme customization.
Your company is like no other. Joel spends an extensive amount of time gathering information, conducting in-depth research, and doing multiple interviews within your organization so he can customize his presentation to meet your specific needs. He wants to completely understand the company, division, people, culture, and environment he is to address. This will help him identify the key motivators of his audience. He will spend plenty of time with the event coordinators during a pre-event briefing. In addition, Joel interviews at least two company participants. By doing this, he learns the key issues confronting employees and is able to integrate their personal stories into his presentation.
You will enjoy an immediate return on your investment.
While the benefits are long-term, the results are immediate. Joel consistently creates long-term benefits for his audiences by providing specific action steps and useful tips that can be put into practice immediately. His participants leave with new skills, practical tools and innovative solutions to current challenges at work.
Five Signs You Need a Dynamic,
Inspirational Keynote Speaker
Employee performance is lagging.
Joel moves people quickly from lagging to thriving. They will leave the keynote feeling enthusiastic about going back to work. Their knowledge base has expanded as they have acquired new skills that inspire them. With new perspectives, they see a future filled with challenge and possibility.
Motivation fades too quickly
Joel’s motivational keynote speeches produce lasting results. It’s easy to find a “rah rah” speaker who generates instant inspiration and excitement as a motivator. Unfortunately, the excitement often fades as soon as the speaker leaves the stage. Joel is a change agent who leaves behind his set of tools and techniques that generate continuing performance improvement.
Employees are disengaged
Disengaged employees are responsible for inefficiency, low morale, and insufficient productivity. Joel’s dynamic keynote presentation can motivate and inspire your people, boosting morale and increasing employee satisfaction. You’ll show your valued employees how much you value their contribution and encourage them to do even more when you provide a life-changing experience with Joel as your motivational keynote speaker.
Morale is sagging
Economic and industry conditions can create a toxic work environment. If there are rumors of layoffs, pay cuts, or management shakeups, you need to change the narrative. A motivational keynote speaker like Joel counteracts employees’ negative attitudes, and gives them a fresh perspective on their roles and responsibilities. He restores their confidence and passion.
People are stuck in their comfort zone
Not everyone welcomes change. If your employees have started to feel too comfortable, it could signal trouble ahead. For your company to get ahead of the competition, you must keep adapting. Joel brings with him a whole new perspective, changing attitudes and inspiring people to take on new challenges.
