Speaking Events

As Joseph Burke brings his vivid life and background to the world, a memorable and compassionate message of hope will be delivered. Not only will he engage the audience with comedy, antics and media presentations, but reach them deeper at a "heart level."

As a founder of the non-profit organization Strive 2 Thrive, and former tour marketing representative and founder of the fan community for the world renowned off-broadway production Blue Man Group, Joe's enthusiasm, uplifting spirit and heart is contagious to all he meets. He will empower people of all ages to break free from whatever chains that deprive us of the amazing bright future we were intended to lead. "The paralysis of analysis limits our true potential, but the mission gives us permission to keep pushing forward."

In a multi-sensory environment, live show using music, visuals and video, Joseph will not only convey his amazing testimony of faith, hope and striving to thrive daily, he will immerse the audience in a heart wrenching story of HOPE, LOVE and FAITH. "The MESSAGE doesn't change, but the methods of COMMUNICATING it have to." Joseph will talk about topics that will open the minds and hearts of viewers of all ages, including:
  • Face Every Trial With Confidence
  • Strive to Live Outside the Box
  • Thrive to Live For Others
  • Break the Chains in Your Life
  • Let Go & Let God
  • Man Up 
  • Know Your Role In the Battle
  • Living Toxic
  • Swallow Your Pride
  • Too Blessed To Be Stressed
  • Don't Survive, THRIVE
Growing up in South East Kentucky, deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, Joseph always dreamed big, and visioned himself with monumental goals, facing insurmountable odds and living in fear of "what next?" Despite all these obstacles, Joseph found success in church, ministry, Blue Man Group, graphic design, television and radio broadcasting. For 2 years, Joseph and his wife toured the nation with Blue Man Group, and lived life on the road and in the air. People will become inspired to once again find true joy, to cherish every moment, value relationships, dream big and commit to make impact on those around them, especially in their local communities. 

Joseph delivers an engaging speech of encouragement pulling from his many years in broadcast media and motivational speaking in the ministry and for hemophilia awareness campaigns. With the future release of Joseph's upcoming book "I Strive To Thrive," even more emphasis will be driven toward the power of testimony. "It's not our life, or our testimony... It's God's!" 

Joseph Burke is available for your next school, church, conference or event. For meeting planners looking for something other than the traditional podium speech will be thrilled with the I Strive 2 Thrive production.
