Joel Weldon

Hall of Fame Speaker

Joel Weldon's international reputation for his seminars has earned him repeated invitations as well as accolades. For 30 years, he has been sought after as an Idea Consultant and seminar leader by many of the world's leading organizations and businesses.

A former construction worker with no formal education, Joel turned down a full scholarship because he thought he wasn't smart enough to go to college. But a few years later his life completely changed. He discovered amazing talents and abilities he never knew he had, and he became a prime example of the power of one idea to transform your life!

As a charter member of the 4,000-member National Speakers Association, Joel is one of the elite group to have earned the distinguished CPAE Speakers Hall of Fame designation.

He is a recipient of the coveted Communication & Leadership Award, and of The Golden Gavel, the highest honor in the speaking profession, reserved for only the most outstanding communicators.

Joel is also known worldwide for his registered trademark, a heavy 8-ounce can that says: Success Comes in Cans, Not in Cannots.

Long-time residents of Scottsdale, Arizona, Joel and his wife, Judy, have been married over 40 years, are partners in their seminar business, and have raised two daughters. His clients refer to him as America's Most Prepared Speaker, a reputation he lives up to, in program after program, without exception.

It's not what happens to you , it's how you respond! It's all up to you!

Forget the excuses, and take ACTION!

Vice President, Sales SKIPPERLINER INDUSTRIES

"Thank you for all your support and direction and most of all your THOROUGH / ENTHUSIASTIC approach to our Operator's Meeting and our guests. The positive feedback I received at Sanibel exceeded last year's (if you can believe that!). Joel, I can not express to you how valuable it is to have you as our keynote speaker. Knowing you are going to be there takes a tremendous pressure off our shoulders, as we know your portion of the program will be solid. You offer a great deal to our meetings, Joel, and not simply while you are on stage. Your insight to details of many things behind the scenes really helps us pull things together."

Executive Vice President GAMA (General Agents and Managers Association)

"Joel, your extensive preparation to customize your presentation to the needs of our members was quite refreshing in this era of "canned" speeches. It's great to find a speaker that actually practices what they present: you promise a lot and deliver even more!"

Managing Director Citigroup Asset Management

"Thank you so much for presenting your Willie Factor seminar to our Citigroup Asset Management Top Producers. In a world that has become so technologically oriented, it's refreshing to see a true professional engage and involve the audience with such energetic magnetism. Joel, you are second to none!"

Vice President JOHNSON & JOHNSON CLINICAL DIAGNOSTICS

"What a performance, Joel! Your idea seminar, Coyote Power, at our National Sales Meeting was a real success!! As I told you and Judy, on our evaluations, with a scale of 1-5, you rated a 5.01. That's in a group of over 300 tough sales folks!"
