“The realistic approach of Mr. Prejean’s message reaches your core. His story and references are exactly what people need to mentally reset and change the approach to any negative situation. During his presentation at Cox Communications, the impact he had on our viewpoints of stress and the general sales process hit the nail on the head. Mr. Prejean gave a stripped down, real life approach on handling the kickback of the day to day grind. He simply hit our reset button!”
Brandon Rochon, Cox Communications
“…Joe is a very sought after speaker because he’s entertaining and he pushes people to see the greatness in themselves, thru sharing his life’s struggles and successes. A lot of people motivationally speak, even teach, but very few “witness” with such inspiration as Joe “Big Poppa” Prejean! His gifts of sensitivity and compassion, are revealed in his love of helping people change for the better, thru insight into their own strength. His DETOUR message incorporates superb techniques for personal growth and success.”
Hon. Fred Mills, Louisiana State Representative
