What are people saying?


Sirena Logan-Burns
Store Leader at Tesla

"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."

"Joze is simply awe-inspiring. I had the pleasure of inviting him to be a keynote speaker at our HR Leaders Summit in Toronto and Calgary. He truly wowed our attendees by his incredible and moving keynote, even receiving a standing ovation. Whether you are an organization looking to inspire your employees or an events professional looking for a unique keynote speaker who can share an incredible message about diversity and adversity - I highly recommend reaching out to Joze!"

Timothy Sheehee,
VP Media & Entertainment at Birlasoff

“I heard Joze speak in Los Angeles, where he addressed a group of senior executives in the Media & Entertainment industry, and has 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.”


Felisha Ali,
Leadership & Employee Development at Seneca College

"I knew Joze would be the perfect presenter for our HR Team’s Learning Event after seeing him as a keynote. His message was relevant and so useful for everyone on the team. Joze is genuine and sincere in his delivery, positive, inspiring, emotional and refreshing! “This session was one of the best I have attended!” according to an HR Team member. I speak for the group when I say we all left the session not only feeling invigorated, but with a sense of purpose. He was well received because of his ability to engage everyone individually. This was exactly what we needed and I cannot think of a more likable and captivating speaker.”

Paul Vollmershausen,
Director at TEDxQueensU 2018

“In February 2018 as the speakers director of TEDxQueensU, I had the honour of watching Joze Piranian perform in front of 500 students and community members at the Isabel Bader Centre in Kingston, Ontario. We gave Joze the tough task of leading of our day long conference and to put it simply, he blew us all away. I cannot imagine anyone to have better captivated, motivated and energized our audience on a weekend morning.”


Andrea Hansen,
Partner at Sutton Financial Group

“Joze was the closing keynote speaker at the Advocis National Symposium in Saskatoon, SK. He was inspiring, authentic engaging and vulnerable. He had the perfect blend of humour and seriousness and was able to relate and connect to each person in the audience as we learned that each of us has a fear holding us back. His story and message is one that every person should hear as when we face our fears our potential grows exponentially”

Dr Karine Rashkovsky,
Founder and Director at Brain Power

“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 ('18) 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!”
