Meet Joel Goldberg
Emmy Award Winning Broadcaster. Keynote Speaker. Published Author.
Joel began dreaming of a career as a sportscaster at a young age, always wanting to deliver news of the previous night’s game to his grade school teachers.
He’s spent more than a quarter century on television, relying on relationship building to tell athletes’ stories. Joel’s unique access enables him to share lessons learned from the baseball field to the board room as a motivational speaker and to homes everywhere through his business podcast.
From star athletes and CEOs to the role players needed in every organization, Joel's purpose is to tell everyone's story in a genuine way.
Life will throw anyone curve balls, but Joel believes in controlling the controllable, always doing the little things and working hard.
Teams in sports, business or any profession function best when leaders focus on their people.
Why do we do what we do? Finding passion and a reason for doing the little things can unlock big results.
Joel always sees the glass as half full, if not overflowing, and knows energy-givers help provide the ingredients to any success story.
The Man Behind the Microphone
Joel Goldberg broke into the sports broadcasting scene by knocking on the doors of television stations, cold calling broadcast executives and handing out resume tapes in the 1990s.
He has had the pleasure of interviewing countless athletes, Hall of Famers and celebrities while traveling the world, telling stories from famous stars to under-the-radar role players.
His longtime job of covering the Kansas City Royals as a host and reporter is a privilege, enabling him to entertain, inform and connect athletes with fans. Through his years of storytelling and watching championship organizations succeed (and fail), he realized his access to methods executives use to build culture and championship teams translated to the corporate world.
Topics like trust, communication, purpose, persistence and mentorship apply to the world of sports, business and life. Joel weaves them all together through his locker room experiences. Plus, he keeps tabs on the business world through numerous conversations with business leaders on his podcast.
