Joe Dwyer realized his passion for motivational speaking after delivering a ten- minute speech in his sophomore year of high school. He discovered his gifts of compassion and empathy as well as a demonstrated ability to connect with his audience.
Now, with over 25 years of diverse business and personal experience, he also inspires people to find their “treasures” through his presentation series.
Joe began his professional career as a Chemical engineer at Schering Plough, after earning a degree in chemistry from
Rutgers University’s Newark College of Arts and Sciences. He moved on to Bell Atlantic
in 1984 and, as a sales manager, won awards for Sales and Leadership four years in a row! While at Bell Atlantic, he became a skilled Management/Labor negotiator and was the “Circle of Excellence” award recipient for the 1998 Labor Agreement.
Joe’s career took a turn in 2000 when he joined the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark. He was instrumental in reshaping the administration within the Archdiocese and spent seven years as Vice Chancellor for Administration where he led the activities of the major departmental groups of the Archdiocese.
Joe is a member of the National Speakers Association and Coach U (a world class coach training organization).
Joe is the author of three books:
“Shelby’s Grace” (published in September 2010), “The Dog Ate My Homework … Or
did He?” (published in January 2011) and “Roadmap to Success” (will be published in March 2011).
Additionally, Joe is a certified dog trainer who has always been advocating passionately for animal rights. He has rescued two dogs from shelters who share his family home in New Jersey. More recently, he trained one of them, Shelby, to be a certified therapy dog.
Joe is also trained in martial arts, holding a 3rd degree black belt in Karate.
Along with these training and his diverse life experiences, Joe brings to his speaking an engaging and comfortable style that welcomes participation and allows for a mutual journey and connection to begin.
