“SUCCESS COMES IN CANS, NOT IN CANNOTS!” JOEL WELDON . . .A Former Construction Worker who turned down a four-year college scholarship because he thought he just wasn’t “smart enough” to go to college, Joel Weldon is living proof of the power of one idea to transform your life! For the past 36 years he’s been one of the most highly respected and sought-after speakers in North America, and an Idea Consultant and Sales Trainer to many of the world’s leading organizations and businesses. Companies that hired him three decades ago are still hiring him today!
Joel’s unique concept known as N-F-V makes it possible for him to gain a thorough understanding of your organization’s NEEDS, FEARS, and VICTORIES. His message of timeless truths will resonate deeply with the audience, as he focuses on changeless principles that remain valid, no matter how much the world is changing. With his special brand of humor, he energizes the audience—opening their minds to the practical solutions he provides, while delivering a serious, hard-hitting message—a message specifically designed to meet their NEEDS; help them conquer their FEARS; and reinforce their 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.”
His unique corporate logo is known by thousands of people throughout the world—a heavy, 8-ounce can that says: “Success Comes in CANS, Not in Cannots!” It’s a message that sums up his philosophy—“Forget the excuses! Take responsibility! And take ACTION!”
