"What sets Joel apart is that he really knows how to make his point and keep his audience engaged, a skill essential for presentations to large audiences. But more than being an engaging speaker, he takes that skill and imparts it to the participants. The individual attention Joel provided to our managers yielded results almost instantaneously from tips on the importance of making a point and proving it, to the basics of how to position yourself in front of the audience."
