The thing that I love the most about Jeff’s talks are that he wraps his funny, and sometimes wild life experiences into his teachings to create a message that will stick with his audiences for years. Because of his broad background, he not only relates to, but fully connects and engages people from all walks of life with his stories and teachings. I have been told you always learn more when you are laughing....and yup that's going to happen when listening to Jeff Joiner. Thanks Jeff for sharing and teaching so many! It has had a positive impact on not only our business, but our personal lives as well.”

“It is hard to put into words the value of continuing education and professional development.  Leadership Skills for School Nutrition Professionals developed and presented by Jeff Joiner to 36 Food Service Professionals in South-Western City Schools  was an extraordinary experience.  Every person came away with knowledge and skills to better their work environment.  The four sessions included hands on role playing, small group discussions, and practice sessions for the participants.  Every session built upon the prior session and the kitchen managers were excited to share how they were putting the things they learned into practice in their own cafeterias.  As the Director of Food Services I have been amazed at the shift in attitude and pride that has taken place.  Our kitchen managers feel valued as professionals. They feel empowered and prepared to handle the challenges and opportunities of our ever changing school meals environment. Professional development presented in Jeff Joiner style was fun, fast paced, uplifting and exhilarating.  In my 28 years as a Food Service Director I have never been more proud than I am today of the opportunities these sessions have provided for leadership and personal growth to all of our Food Service Professionals. ”
