Mark Henkel Recommends Joe Grondin

Having Joe Grondin as my mentor and coach changed everything for my public speaking growth!

– Here is the video of my recommendation of public speaking mentor, Joe Grondin. –



Hi everyone!
My name is Mark Henkel.
I am a Distinguished Toastmaster and a Professional Speaker with the tagline,
“You Can Do This!”

I’ve been fortunate to speak at the same venue as
Supreme Court Justices and Presidential Candidates.

But I have to tell you,
having Joe Grondin as my mentor and coach
changed everything for my public speaking growth!

What it’s like to learn from Joe Grondin…
it can best be shown with three Numbers:
6, 9, and 27.
What those numbers reveal is the difference between
Adding, Multiplying, and Exponentiating.

These are the 3 speeds you that can develop your public speaking skills.
You can do it by yourself,
and you’ll be ADDING,
like 3+3 equals 6.
Or, you can go find a mentor,
and you’ll be MULTIPLYING skills,
like 3×3 equals 9.
Or. you can learn from Joe Grondin,
where you’ll be EXPONENTIATING your skillset,
like 3 to the 3rd power equals 27.

It’s up to you:
Adding, Multiplying, or Exponentiating;
6, 9, or 27.

When you’re ready to EXPONENTIATE your growth of public speaking,
do what I do:
Have Joe Grondin as your mentor and coach!

You Can Do This!

I was so honored to later also see that Joe posted this video on his facebook. He is so fantastic!

With Joe’s approval, the video is now public on my own youtube channel, as
