He possesses such an incredible wealth of knowledge & experience that his communication is powerful & laser focused. One of the key attributes to a great coach is they are able to see what you can't see. This is WHY I needed a coach.

“Joe is a truly unique person. Not only does he shine in the world of public speaking (he could turn a mute into a GREAT public speaker) but he excels in the world of relationships. His work as a public speaking & leadership coach is of the highest quality. One reason, besides the fact that Joe KNOWS what he is doing, is that he cares so much about people. Joe is a unique people's person. You feel shy and unable to get your message across, in front of (large) audiences? Trust Joe - he will make you the best speaker you thought you could never be!”

Patrick Valtin, Founder, President, New Era Management

“Joe has a unique talent in teaching people how to speak very well in front of audiences. And getting them over their fear of speaking. My agency, The Hired Gunz, was born in Silicon Valley doing the graphics aspect of presentations. In over 30 years of experience, Joe's book, No Fear Speaking is the first book I have read which nailed the precise and exact steps to giving a speech. It is the Bible of speaking.”

Kirk Mossing, The Hired Gunz

“Joe skillfully helps executives learn and master the multidisciplinary skill-sets needed to reach peak performance in any presentation or performance situation. I will recommend him to all of my clients”

Pam Lagano, PR, Investor Relations, Marketing Consultant and Strategist

“Joe has an uncanny coaching ability. I have watched as Joe took a fumbling presenter and made him one of the best in the area in just a few sessions. Joe can quickly (within minutes) observe you giving a speech and correctly identify what is holding the person back. I have watched as Joe give that person one-on-one coaching. To my amazement, he fixed in 10 minutes what I thought would take major surgery to fix.”

Bud Reichel, Coach, Consultant, Executive Life Coaching

“If you have a dream, Joe will not only dream with you, but he'll actually give you the tools to help make that dream happen. As a leadership and life coach, he is unrivaled, and simply; the best.

David Sanders, CMC, CEO Vision Practice Management

“Forty years ago I received a book titled Tongue and Quill in the processing line of the US Air Force Academy. We were told anything we needed to know about effective communication was between its covers. It remains the definitive reference for USAF officers today. Loaded with wit, humor, and insight, No Fear Speaking challenges T&Q as the ultimate guide for speakers struggling to master the art of reaching an audience.”

DAVID J. SCOTT, Retired Major General, USAF

“Joe Yazbeck is a force to be reckoned with, and that intensity comes through in No Fear Speaking. This very well organized book is a complete checklist for everything a person would need in order to become a ‘No-Fear Speaker,’ including instructions and drills for how anyone can successfully overcome their stage-fright. Despite being a celebrated author myself, I have had my share of hesitancy when it comes to public speaking. Reading this book has taught me the essential elements of No Fear Speaking and has given me a step-by-step blueprint of instructions for building those elements into a highly effective speaking experience. Whatever your speaking issues are, No Fear Speaking will help you develop the skills and confidence you need to be a successful public speaker, and will clear your path to becoming a master at it.”

HARRY FRISCH, Author of HOW TO SELL—Clear and Simple

“If you are looking to become a great public speaker, read this book NOW. It contains the secrets of those who have naturally mastered the art of public speaking. Joe’s thirty-year-plus experience in coaching all types of businesspeople, executives and artists, is entirely reflected in this amazing compilation. It takes away the fears and the considerations you might have while thinking about that speech you will need to produce and deliver to sell an idea, to solicit funds, or to plead for a good cause. Having trained over 100,000 business owners and executives in more than thirty countries in the last twenty-five years, I did not realize I could still improve my speaking talent. That is, until I read this book. There is no theory here—just applicable, down-to-earth tips and techniques that guarantee to make you a professional speaker!”

PATRICK VALTIN, Author, No Fail Hiring; CEO, New Era Management International

“No Fear Speaking is a rare work on public speaking that is both readable and immediately useful. Yazbeck guides the reader, step by step, through the mechanics and dynamics of public speaking with clear, lean descriptions that not only convey the methodology but also the underlying logic with great insight. As someone who has worked in the high technology industry for over thirty years, this book taught me that public speaking and technical presentation is not an ancillary activity but a major essential to one’s success.”

GARY IOSBAKER, Distinguished Technologist, CTO Telecom-Americas, Hewlett-Packard

“I liked the simplicity and the common sense approach to effective public speaking in this book. It provided valuable tips that I tried with recent groups that gave me an advantage in gaining the messages acceptance. IT HELPED MY SALES!”

FRANK SUAREZ, Owner Natural Health Facilities, Author, The Power of Metabolism

“I’ve been reading self help books on sales and public speaking for over 40 years. I’ve been personally involved in these areas for even longer. I’ve presented to a single audience with as many as 5,000 people and mentored dozens. I’ve never seen a better plan for speaking effectively. Joe has a practical approach, logically organized, well articulated with sequentially organized tasks and checklists that are so simply explained that virtually anyone can do it. No Psycho-babble, no Mumbo-jumbo, no vague generalities. Straightforward and clear, inspiring and motivational and results oriented. A MUST read for anyone involved in speaking EFFECTIVELY.”

JORYN JENKINS, Collaborative Divorce Attorney, Speaker, Author, CEO, Open Palm Law

“We have worked with Edwin Dearborn for several years. He has done a phenomenal job in marketing and promoting our multi-doctor Orange County spinal rehabilitation practice. We have worked with several advertising and marketing professionals over the years. Most are simply interested in ‘selling’ you the latest advertising gimmick of the week whether or not it makes any sense for your particular business or industry. I am most impressed with Ed’s ability to ‘diagnose’ the needs of his clients which he uses to develop a business-specific marketing and promotional plan. I would highly recommend Ed for the marketing and promotion needs of any business, big or small.”

– Dr. Ken Erickson, D.C., owner of Irvine Family Health Center

“I often have people come in to my store and with a concerned tone ask, ‘How’s business going?  You guys doing all right with the economy?’  I always get to look up with a smile on my face and say, “Great!  We’ve had an increase in gross sales of 15% each year over the past three years.”  Yes, you heard me right, each year.  Why you ask?  A huge thanks to Edwin for his marketing expertise which has continually proven to be spot on. Whenever I have a question or I need advise on how to handle a situation, Edwin seems to know exactly what’s needed. We started working with Edwin in the beginning of 2010 and I don’t see us stopping anytime soon!”
