Speaking Testimonials

“Joe Moglia is an incredibly gifted person with an even more incredible life story. He did a great job speaking to our Senior Leadership Group team very directly with a clear concise message. I was very impressed that he took the time to research our industry and address very specific issues with examples from within our company and his personal life. His ability to motivate and lead a team are well documented; however, his ability to connect with a room that he had never met before was pretty special. He had our team on the edge of their chairs during his presentation and ready to take the field when he finished.”

Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC

“Joe, you are a gifted storyteller, keeping the group interested throughout your presentation. …You handled some dicey topics with ease …Hearing your stories gave people hope about closing one chapter and starting a next. You have reinvented yourself very successfully multiple times…Your success perhaps reminded people that there could be many diamonds in the rough and we should not give up on a community.

I have been to many Business Ethics Alliance meetings, and I don’t ever remember there being a standing ovation. Well done!”

Habitat for Humanity

“Joe Moglia will blow you away, both raw and remarkable, he weaves his experience in life, business and football together in a way that gives everyone in the audience immediate tools to be more effective leaders, coaches and parents. A year after first seeing him speak, his message still sticks with me every day at work and at home.”

Collegiate Sports Summit

“I don’t think we’ve ever had a speaker that captured the audience’s attention and moved them the way Joe did.”

Wells Fargo

“Joe made a lasting impression on our cadets; he’s a superb role model and one of the most frank, moving and inspirational speakers we’ve ever had at the Coast Guard Academy...”

Vice Admiral : Sandra Leigh Stosz US Coast Guard Academy

“Coach Moglia's lessons on leadership are now part of our educational curriculum for the University of Pennsylvania Orthopedic Leadership Academy, a program jointly conceived by our department and the McNulty Leadership Program at Wharton.

His lessons on accountability, integrity and respect for others have inspired our residents in Orthopedic Surgery to lead in the operating room, clinic and home. He is the embodiment of GRIT and his personal story demonstrates the power of perseverance and passion.”

John D. Kelly IV, MD Professor of Clinical Orthopedic Surgery at Penn Perelman School of Medicine

“Thank you so much Joe. You are a gift to the kids of SAY, and to the entire SAY family. We feel very blessed to know you.”

The Stuttering Associate of the Young SAY.org

“Joe is one of the most inspirational people and speakers I know or have had to pleasure to listen to. He spoke recently at a Boarding School graduation and was a great success. His preparation was thorough, his message was clear, and his passion was infectious. He connected with the graduates and their families in a way that few can. The thunderous applause that followed his speech brought the audience to their feet. I would whole heartedly endorse Joe as a motivational speaker. He is simply the best.”

President International Investment Firm

“Joseph Moglia engaged with the audience instantaneously and his life story was riveting! His experience in the Board Room and on the Gridiron is unique and it's amazing how similar the preparation is to compete in today's environment. Taking ownership of your actions and living with a high set of standards are not buzz words but what sets his teams/staff apart from the competition. We're a major competitor to TD Ameritrade but have similar qualities. We know that competition makes us better and it's leaders like Joe/Coach that make it all happen! A few of the verbatims: "Energizing & engaging", "Glued to every word", "Content was terrific", "Down to earth but visionary", "Uncompromised with high standards".”


“Your message to our students was inspiring and pitch-perfect as they prepared to embark on their lives as young business men and women, away from their parents' protection and capable of bringing about change in today's society.”

Bentley University

“All that I can say is THANK YOU! Joe was an overwhelming success!”

Michael J. Robinson, M.S. Executive Director/CEO, Business Ethics Alliance
