“I was fortunate enough to hear Joze speak to a group of leaders at Tesla. I found him to be very engaging, funny and vulnerable. Hearing him speak about our “inner stutter”, and the idea of using your fear as a trampoline really resonated with me. I have already recommended Joze to others and will continue to do so. If you have let fear hold you back from going after something you want, let Joze be your first jump on the trampoline”
“I am delighted to recommend Joze Piranian as an inspiring mentor to youth. In my various capacities as Founder of Brain Power Enrichment Programs, an active contributor to the Greater Toronto Area community. I am well positioned to comment on Joze’s ability to share his knowledge and story in a way that makes students want to improve their own public speaking abilities and to face their own fears. Joze’s participation as a guest speaker at Brain Power this fall was a memorable and inspiring experience for our students. His consistently warm and welcoming attitude makes him easy to relate to. Some of my students are still quoting some of the inspiring tidbits Joze shared with them”
“I heard Joze speak in Los Angeles, where he addressed a group of senior executives on the Media & Entertainment industry and had all of us utterly captivated. To say we were inspired and moved by your keynote address would be an understatement. Anyone who hears him can’t help but be moved by his courage and fearlessness”
