    A few words that come to mind when reflecting on our experience with Joel: Courteous, respectful, interesting, captivating, dynamic, humble, and kind. He was prompt, prepared, and professional in his presentation. Our group was engaged and rated him as "outstanding," and the subject matter was "extremely valuable." We hope to invite him back to future events!

    Joel came in for a brief presentation on working with people of different personalities. The discussion was very informative. He also did an excellent job of taking our new mission statement and really expounding on what it implies for every employee.

About this pro

MOST REQUESTED TOPIC: "Dealing With People Who Drive You Crazy!" BIO: JoelSpeaksRealGood dot com CALL: 410..991..9718 -- Let's talk... I never use "off-the-shelf" training. It's much more exciting for everyone to customize training by asking to interview at least 2-3 people -- prior to the event -- to get a better sense of what I will present to the group. Each presentation centers around the implementation of the mission and vision of every organization I work with. I am curious about many things, which has informed what I am passionate about: Leadership. Black History. Rosetta Stone history. Archaeology. The psyche of professional athletes. Real-world problem solving. Conflict resolution. Travel. Entrepreneurship. Emotional intelligence. Comparative religions. Cross cultural competence. And so much more... ...It's what one learns after he/she thinks they know it all that really counts. With travels to well over 55 countries, I have learned much from the people I have met and worked with in those countries.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      THUMBTACK SPECIAL: Since you are within driving distance, I do not have to travel on another plane and do not have to stay in another hotel. To someone who has traveled to 50+ countries around the world, that is music to my ears. International travel is not as alluring as it once was when I was younger. This is why I am available here at Thumbtack for your event. I hope this makes sense to you. Let me be frank. The reason I did not list my fee for your event is because I have an agent in Nashville and I am rather embarrassed by what he charges for my services. I can guarantee that it is far more than what's in your budget. I have a clause in my agreement with him that permits me to deal directly with you...and not have to send you to my agent. But for Thumbtack, I am making myself available to organizations who normally would not be able to afford my services. I am a trusting soul. Tell me about the purpose of your organization, the "take-aways" you want from your event, your budget and your objectives. I leverage my talents to help with my Foundation. Whatever funds you provide will be put toward projects I am passionate about through my Foundation. That makes my agent happy and also allows me to say, "The more you are able to pay, the happier it makes me."

    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I am learning all the time. I read widely on all types of topics. I also attend seminars and workshops periodically to sharpen my skills.
