Joel has spoken at hundreds of events and is a frequent keynote speaker at industry and company events throughout North America and around the world. His audiences vary widely — including senior executives, corporate supply chains, customer groups, trade associations, marketing professionals, and regional economic development bodies — from small roundtable discussions to large and diverse gatherings.
Joel’s keynote speaking topics are tailored for each audience. Sample topics include:
- The State of Green Business: a frank assessment of key corporate sustainability trends and challenges — the good and the not-so-good — including both macro analysis as well as best practices and case studies.
- The VERGE Opportunity: focusing on how the convergence of technologies is transforming markets and accelerating sustainability solutions in a climate-constrained world.
- The New Grand Strategy: a business plan for America, born at the Pentagon, that embeds sustainability as a strategic national imperative — and the opportunities it offers business.
Joel is also a skilled moderator, called upon by companies and conferences around the world to conduct on-stage or on-camera one-on-one interviews, or to host lively and intelligent panel discussions with executives and thought leaders, for in-person, video, and online events.
He also has served as the emcee of dozens of events, including multi-day conferences, harnessing his talents as an engaging host, a nimble thinker, and a quick wit to create events that rise above “conference as usual.”
Joel is represented by leading speaker’s bureaus and can also work directly with clients.
