Joe Klimchak helps people of all ages become more relaxed, confident and effective public speakers by offering one-on-one training, both in-person and virtual.

Joe shares compelling personal stories to help speakers of all abilities become stand-out presenters. He doesn't count filler words or closely monitor gestures, but instead unlocks everyone's natural ability to powerfully move, persuade and inspire others through a simple change in mindset.

Joe has been studying the art of public speaking for more than 40 years. Fascinated by television broadcasters at the age of 10, Joe's dream was to become either an announcer for his beloved Pittsburgh Pirates or a game show host. Both dreams came true for him in 2005 when he was named the Pirates' In-Game Host, and, for the past 19 seasons, he has welcomed millions of baseball fans to PNC Park.

Joe has been chosen to emcee many of the region's biggest events, including Major League Baseball's Little League Classic, Arnold Palmer's 80th Birthday celebration at PNC Park, Downtown Pittsburgh's Light Up Night, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's Annual Gala, the Chuck Tanner Awards Banquet, Clint Hurdle's Hot Stove Dinner and the historic "Boxing on the Bridge" event between the USA and Cuba.

Joe has also kicked off dozens of post-game concerts by introducing many of the world's top musical bands and artists such as REO Speedwagon, Styx, Chicago, Foreigner, Luke Bryan, Smash Mouth, and Third Eye Blind.

"I went to Joe to get some advice on public speaking for college and for a competition called Distinguished Young Women (formerly Junior Miss).  The things he taught me and the confidence he helped me discover led me to a win in the interview portion and second overall for the Beaver County competition. I highly recommend listening to what he has to say. -Brooke Burhenn, Penn State University 


"Joe's fresh approach to public speaking made me reconsider how I present at school assemblies and events. I'm already looking forward to my next presentation!" -Rachel Bowen, Union H.S.
