As a college football leader, Joel knows the impact we can have on others. How when we work together, rather than against each other, success is sure to come. That in our teams, we all contribute something. This also applies to the whole of life. We can find a connection in our similarities and curiosity in our differences. That we’re all individuals, members of the human team, and that we all come from different places, are taught different things, yet that all things contribute and affect society in powerful ways. Joel brings the powerful message of connection, rather than separation. He instills the magic in wonder, rather than judgment. He entices us to find ways to relate to others, instead of bullying violence. Humor is his token to engage the audience, using real-life examples and active participation from the audience, Joel demonstrates how to overcome bullying and how to overcome our lower selves.

A Message from the Anti-Bullying Speakers PlatformIt’s important to hear and to know from an objective source that the words and actions of bullies is a reflection of themselves and what’s going on in their life. Joel provides the tools to overcome bullying from both perspectives. To the bully, Joel touches on how being a bully to a peer can have really negative and hurtful effects. Especially bullying based on judgment, so he encourages empathy and understanding, so those who are the bully question whether they are acting with their best self in mind. He questions if they are acting from a place of truth and how the circumstances of their own life may be instigating these harmful ways. And why it’s important to rise above bullying others as a distraction from their own pain. Joel teaches his audience in a funny and captivating way that is cool to be mature and responsible, with an anti-bullying perspective.

What does it mean to stand your ground? People today are
constantly making commitments and breaking them.  Look at

the list of unfulfilled promises goes on.  It it even possible to
keep our commitments?

Stand your ground,  Don't back down.

Joel Penton says, "Yes it is possible" - he knows from
experience.  Like most of your students, Joel was put into
situations in middle school and high school where it would
have been easy to compromise and break his commitments.
However, he chose to rise above the pressure and keep the
committments he made in school, in football, and in life.

Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

Joe will say that it takes character, it takes will, and the road
will be hard.  But his personal experience is proof that ordinary
people can accomplish great things by simply following through
with the commitments they have made.  Your students will be
inspired and reminded of the importance of not just making
committments, but also keep those commitments.

Don't back down.  Stand your ground.
