“Each year, for about the past ten years, I have scheduled a keynote speaker, in addition to our physician lectures, and I would have to say that your talk was one of the finest we have heard in those ten years. Your presentation drew the audience in from the start and held our attention for the full hour as we laughed and were inspired.”

Joe was great at a meeting I attended. It was a 3 day meeting and Joe kept us on time and knew his audience. He acted like he knew all of us for many years. He even used our names and helped keep our attention. With his sports stories he can relate to anybody. I felt I knew him for years instead of a day or two.
Burdette Elsbury
International at (USPS) United States Postal Service

"Joe spoke to our entire staff at our Back to School opening workshop and was absolutely amazing. He engaged our staff for 2 hours and made every point within his book, Silent Impact, relevant. I would highly recommend Joe to any school or other organization that is looking to make a connection with customers or students. Thank Joe!"
Jeff Elstad

We were approached by many after who personally thanked us for having him be a part of the event. Truly impactful.”
Jay T. Roesler
Tri-Chair of the 2014 Minnesota Community Education Association’s Fall Conference

“Your thoughtful and humorous approach delighted our attendees and became the highlight of our event. We especially appreciated the way you customized the presentation to our audience of hotel owners and managers to speak to them in a way that made them feel important. The next day they were still talking about you and the GrandStay poem you wrote for them.”
Jon Kennedy
