~Joel H. Weldon
Weldon has also been inducted into the National Speakers Hall of Fame and, in 2006, was named a “Legend of the Speaking Profession.” He’s known worldwide for his unique trademark, a heavy 8-ounce can which sits on the desks of thousands of his clients and customers, with a label that reads: “Success Comes In CANS, Not In Cannots!”
Asked the secret of his success, he cites several factors, including preparation. Although he has given more than 2,800 presentations, he says: “As a professional speaker for more than 35 years, I still invest 50 hours to prepare for each of my custom keynote speeches and seminars. Why? Because to be excellent, I know each idea presented must relate specifically to the audience.”
He adds, “Excellence is the result of effort and preparation. How much time are you willing to invest in order to be amazing at what you do — so people can only describe your results as excellent? It’s one of the keys to your success.”
