Hard Won Insights to Empower You & Your Team...from a Hedge Manager Who Spent 30 Years in the Shark Tank: How HR Can Get a Seat at the C-Suite
presented by Joel Block


Power and influence in any business come from company growth – and HR is a critical part of the engine that makes growth happen.

Your value is dramatic.

Too often, HR is undervalued and underutilized. But you have a choice: Take a seat at the table, or be on the menu. Guess which Joel Block recommends?

You’re about to learn the fastest, easiest, and best ways to help your company grow sales, maximize profits, and empower your team so that everyone shows up at their best.

This program is about how ordinary employees become leaders and movers. And so much more. You will gain a new perspective on money, success, and relevance. You’ll walk out of the event ready to think, act, and work differently.

Not merely a “motivational” speaker, Joel delivers powerful tools that anyone can use to get the ball moving in their organization. He breaks down complicated ideas into simple, actionable concepts and steps.

Joel Block is a hedge fund executive, veteran entrepreneur, and professional card shark. Hidden beneath his engaging, down to earth delivery style lurks a calculating, strategic mind that can smell blood over a mobile phone.

He’ll reveal secrets that insiders use to rig the game in their favor. Learn how to take the Inside Track - the smartest, fastest, easiest way to make money and achieve ambitious goals.

Joel Block has been involved in over 40 companies, and he knows how to spot a winning business idea in 3 minutes or less. Much of his success mirrors his nickname, the “Grillmeister”: Joel tells the hard truth in a direct way, getting straight to the heart of the matter: More power and influence for you.

This event will be a game-changer. Your people, your organization, and your career may never be the same.

Some of the things you’ll learn:

  • Be a “Red Ball”: The person who sets things in motion. Your employees become leaders by discovering how to enhance their careers while raising the bar inside your organization
  • How the money game is rigged - and how to rewrite the rules in your favor
  • How to lead and adapt to changing times with disruption-proof strategies
