Conferences Keynote Presentations
Joel specializes in leadership, success, and what holds us back. By nature, Joel is an educator, and he can help your people learn and take action. In the corporate and not-for-profit world, Joel is typically hired in one of these three capacities:
Opening - Energizing, Engaging, and Prepped for Learning.
Content - Entitlementality - the stuff to avoid; Creativity - the stuff to do more.
Closing - Summarize, Distill ideas to action, and Inspire to Take Action
Depending on your event, Joel often starts with one of his three keynote presentations:
Take the Risk - An exploration of leadership, an examination of success, and ultimately, a dissection of what holds us back.
The Rise of Entitlementality - As more people believe that special treatment and success should be guaranteed, we must go back to the basics at work - old fashioned hard work.
Brainsprouting: Creativity Like Never Before - To innovate and survive in today's world requires a deeper understanding of creativity and design thinking.
All of Joel's presentations are full of activities (yes - mousetraps included), stories, laughter, and innovative, "use it immediately" ideas. Educators will come away re-inspired by what brought them into the profession: the opportunity to impact the lives of students and change the world.
