Joel has been promoting the value of humor in the workplace since 1968. In fact, Joel is one of only two professional speakers in the world to have presented in all 50 states and on all seven continents. He has spoken at national and state conferences and in-house training programs for schools, human service organizations, corporations, non-profits, government agencies, and professional associations. Lucie Arnaz (Emmy-winning daughter of Lucille Ball) says “No one on the planet could be more deserving of recognition for what they have done for spreading the word on the healing power of laughter than Joel, Margie (his business partner and wife), and The Humor Project.”
