Delivering the Epic Keynote with Joel Weldon

By Jane Atkinson

The most important part of being a speaker is your keynote! It will make or break you in this business, so you want to construct and deliver an epic speech every single time you hit the platform.  On this episode of The Wealthy Speaker Show, we are so fortunate to be joined by one of the greatest stage performers in this industry…Hall of Fame speaker, Joel Weldon!

For over 40 years Joel has been one of the most highly respected and sought-after keynote speakers and sales trainers in North America, as well as an Idea Consultant and Executive Speech Coach for some of the world’s leading businesses. Companies that hired him four decades ago are still hiring him today, because he gets results!

Highlights you won’t want to miss:

  • The BIG mistake to avoid on the platform.  2:40
  • Motivation vs. inspiration.  5:50
  • Use your intro to address the “elephant in the room”.  9:15
  • Speech prep – it’s all about the audience.  13:00

Joel gives new meaning to the word preparation, and because of that, his message will resonate deeply with every audience. The time he’s willing to spend in preparation is what gives him the edge—an in-depth understanding of their specific needs, fears, and victories. 

Joel is the only speaker to have earned all four of the highest honors in the speaking profession, The Golden Gavel “for his profound impact on corporate America,” the coveted Communication & Leadership Award, induction into the Speakers Hall of Fame, and in 2006 he was named Legend of The Speaking Profession!

As we’re constantly updating and improving our keynote, we can all use great ideas on how to make it epic.  Be sure to tune in to hear from one of the most experienced speakers in the business!
