Joey appreciates, and shares with listeners, that global leadership is a moment-to-moment choice and not about title, tenure or position. Global leadership is for everyone, everyday and it’s how we can live our life with principles first and actions second. He has a natural ability to combine influences, practices and values of the diverse culture in a respectful and productive manner.
He is known for his practical, no-nonsense style which fuses real-life stories and his conversational techniques which connect with his audience at an intimate, intense and individual level. Joey has presented in the New York Times building in NYC and has been recognized by the U.S. Secretary of State for the Global Award for Corporate Excellence. He is a global citizen by nature and he continues to work with the best and brightest in the global leadership and international entrepreneurial arenas.
As one of the creators of the Afford To Care™ enterprise model that helps others in need with every product or service purchased in a sustainable and ethical manner, Joey’s penetrating conversations have been shared with audiences from around the globe. Entities such as the Rockefeller Foundation, Whole Foods Market and Texas Lutheran University have collaborated with Joey when they want global leadership development, diversity & multicultural consulting and international entrepreneurship insights.
Demographic change, the global marketplace, greater tolerance for differences and government-sponsored programs are increasing the importance of diversity in organizations. More women, minorities and people with different ethnic backgrounds and lifestyles have entered the workforce. Joey knows that organizations that do not manage diversity effectively will not be able to utilize the full potential of their team members, nor to survive and grow under increasingly complex and competitive conditions.
