Joe’s Bio:

Joe leads the sales and marketing team at eSpeakers. With over 18 years in the speaking and meetings industry, Joe’s strategic vision and leadership has propelled eSpeakers forward as the leading software provider in the industry. Joe is driven by making a difference in the world, specifically by connecting the right experts with the right audiences to make lasting change!

When he’s not in the office, you can find him spending time with friends and family. He loves the outdoors, especially spending time at Utah’s beautiful Lake Powell. While he’s never been considered the smartest, funniest or most handsome person in the room, Joe has nonetheless been in the room. And his grandmother assures him that this is half the battle.

Dave’s Bio:

Dave Reed has championed the use of technology in the speaking industry since 1999. The company he co-founded, eSpeakers, was his third .com startup and has grown to influence thousands of speakers, event organizers, speakers bureaus, and associations. Through eSpeakers, Dave helps event organizers and speakers come together to impact audiences throughout the world. 

Dave was educated as a computer scientist, so he knows the nuts and bolts — but what he’s passionate about is the specific ways that technology can help the speaking industry do more of what it does best.

When he’s not working, you’ll find Dave playing with his kids, volunteering with the Boy Scouts, on the running trail, or gathered around the table with friends playing a complicated European board game.
