Joel Weldon - A Model Speaker

Joel Weldon - A Model 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!

Control the controllables!

Forget the excuses, and take ACTION!
