and Senior Vice President,
Top organizations who book high-profile speakers all the time said Joan’s presentation was “the most engaging” and “the only one that actually referenced our work.”
They have also said Joan’s presentation received the most questions of any speaker – and the most interesting questions that reflected how much the audience was paying attention to her talk.
Joan has spoken at dozens of corporate, government, university, industry and media events and conferences, from Emceeing huge corporate galas at prestigious venues like Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York, to keynote addresses for audiences at the Defense Department, the U.S. Naval Academy, the National Institutes of Health, the Small Business Administration, The Newseum, SXSW, MOVE Mobility Re-Imagined conferences, Clean Tech Open, National Council for Science and the Environment conferences, Executive Women in Government Summits, Greenbiz Verge, GLG international consulting, among others, and chambers of commerce.

Joan also inspires students and faculty alike at commencement addresses, and does other talks at universities.
Joan is on various speakers’ bureaus including: the U.S. State Department of International Speakers, SheSource, and Speakermatch.

Welcome to the ESG Economy – Lead, Follow or Fail
Joan specializes in sustainability, energy, climate and Environment-Social-Governance (ESG)-related topics, but handles any topic, any panelists and any audience with aplomb – from government leaders and C-level corporate executives, to artists, academics, scientists, students, or journalists.
“As the co-chair of Executive Women in Government’s Annual Summit, I’ve repeatedly booked Joan Michelson to moderate our panel discussions for two reasons: I can depend on her to deliver high-profile talent and engage an audience of Washington’s power women. Our attendees consistently rate her sessions among the most lively discussions in town. I am thrilled to support her new radio show!”
“I’ve had the privilege of being one of Joan’s panelists at several events and I continue to say ‘yes’ to her because she’s one of the best moderators I’ve worked with. She’s always over-prepared, asks tough, thoughtful questions and evokes a vibrant discussion that the audience enjoys. I’ve even told her she’s the next Oprah!”
“Dear Joan, Thank you again for the beautiful hosting and participation in our Fourth Annual Ernesto Illy International Coffee Award at the Appel Room (at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts). You added a wonderful charm and enthusiasm to the evening. I very much enjoyed meeting you!”
“I really enjoyed your session and our chat afterwards. Joan, what resonated for me was the 1/ fast set up with some quick data and facts, 2/ observations and POVs shared from the facilitator/ panelists and 3/ the energy level. I knew I’d share a few key points when I had my next conversation with at least two of my mentees.”Mari Snyder, Vice President,
