As a teenager, Joe Dwyer was bullied, had a terrible case of psoriasis, and lacked self-confidence. Joe continues to suffer through anxiety and depression without the help of any medication.

In his adult life, he has become a 3rd degree Black Belt, exercises every day, and has gained and learned confidence through his own life experiences and his dogs. He has over 25 years of business experience serving as an executive both at Verizon and the Archdiocese of Newark. He won many awards for his Labor/ Management relations’ efforts and settled grievances fairly but with a decisive style. And of course, he learned much of this conflict resolution from his dogs!
Joe had a choice of how to use his personal and business experiences. He decided to parlay his experiences into a speaking platform to help students, teachers, and administrators grow and prosper with the changes and challenges in the education system.

A Journey to Knock Out Toxins 6Joe developed Prosper with the Pack to capitalize on opportunities for growth within schools. With change more prevalent than ever in the education system, all those involved are yearning for something motivational and uplifting.

Most of all, he is a leading authority of Prospering with the Pack to help students, teachers, and administrators all in their own way. With the continued implementation of high stakes testing, among other things, everyone involved in the education system is feeling the pressure to succeed.

Joe has been active with the National Speakers Association and Coach U (a world class coach training organization).

A certified dog trainer and animal activist, Joe has four rescued dogs. He is the author of “Shelby’s Grace” and “Daniel, The Miracle Beagle”, which tell poignant stories of two of his rescues and has also authored “The Dog Ate My Homework” which is about accountability from a dog’s view.
