About Joel Weldon
Imagine this: you are so terrified to stand up and speak to people that you avoid it until, at age 28, you finally decide to give your first presentation. Joel Weldon began his 48-year career as a Hall of Fame Professional Speaker exactly like that, and NOT because he was amazing on that day. In fact, it was the result of feedback from an audience member, who said, “You are the worst speaker I have ever heard in my entire life.” What would you have done if somebody said this after your first effort overcoming your greatest fear?
Joel decided on that very day that he would learn how to speak effectively, and did he ever! In the four decades that followed that life-changing event, Joel was paid to speak at over 3,000 events around the world. His unique business card is an 8 ounce can that says, “Success Comes in Cans not in Can nots.” Over half a million people have his success can as a constant reminder of what they CAN do.
Some people do, and some people teach, Joel excels at both. Joel is all about results and has personally coached over 10,000 speakers. He created a system to enable any speaker to deliver a powerful message with clarity and impact, whether in person or virtually. Joel Weldon’s “Ultimate Speaking System” is designed to help business owners, entrepreneurs and individuals use speaking to grow their business by getting the results they want. Joel’s philosophy is simply this: make your message impossible to be misunderstood, because speaking is simple, when you have a system.
Joel’s commitment to health and fitness is evident by his energy level, which his clients always recognize as one of his unique qualities. In addition to working full-time as a speaker and speaking skills coach, Joel spends over 60 days every year on the water — skiing, surfing and “air-chairing” on a slalom course. He has been married to his high school sweetheart, Judy, for 59 years, has 2 daughters who work with him every day, and 4 wonderful grandchildren.
