Not Your Ordinary Joe

Joe Piscatella is one of the country’s most respected experts on how to live a healthy lifestyle.  But there are a lot of experts on this topic and more than a few good speakers, so why should you choose Joe?

First, because he really knows his subject.  As the author of 16 books, host of three PBS television programs on heart health, and a "guest expert" on WebMD, he presents the latest science on diet, exercise, stress and attitude.

Next, Joe's personal experience of coronary bypass surgery at age 32 gives him a practical perspective that audiences value.  The prognosis at the time of surgery was that he would not live to age 40.  Today, because of healthy lifestyle changes, he is 41 years post-surgery. What he did and how he did it are central to his presentations.  Joe is a speaker that lives his message. 

And finally, he is a master at using stories and anecdotes to make a point.  Audiences smile and laugh-out-loud throughout his presentations as they learn how Type A Joe got two speeding tickets in 20 minutes.  He uses the art of storytelling, contagious humor and decades of experience to help audiences remember the information and advice. 

Joe blends facts, advice and motivation into his balanced-living programs.  Says one client, "Joe is a fabulous speaker with a story that is relevant, personal and life-changing.  His message inspires audiences to take action.  He is a top-quality presenter."
