...is, according to The Wall Street Journal Online, "undoubtedly the chairman of the board of corporate tradeshow rainmaking." Using a compelling synthesis of magic, hypnosis, sales persuasion, and revival-show fury, Joel builds crowds from trade-show passerby and converts them into willing prospects for his clients. On witnessing this miraculous, Joel-engineered conversion process, a Wired magazine reporter called it "an incredible feat of mass obedience that must be seen to be believed."
Twenty million people have experienced Joel's traffic-stopping presentations for organizations such as 3M, Canon, General Motors, IBM, Intel, Mitsubishi, Motorola, Panasonic, and Philips. Millions more have seen him perform on television for networks such as ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, CNN, and FOX.
Although Joel continues to entertain and persuade at trade shows, he now works primarily as a speaker, teaching audiences the secrets of persuasion, sales, personal productivity and his special brand of marketing.
He lives in California with his wife, Cherie, and children Chanelle, Briana, and Sterling.
Joel is also the co-author of How To Persuade People Who Don't Want To Be Persuaded.
