A former Professor of Communications and Public Speaking, Joe Laufer has been "practicing" what he preached by speaking in public since his college days in the early 1960s. His first public lecture was at Russell Sage College in Troy, NY while he was still a college student in Rensselaer, NY. Between 1986 and 1993, as a part of the Christopher Columbus Quincentenary (1992), Joe delivered over 400 speeches to National, Regional and State Conferences, Colleges and Universities, High Schools, Middle Schools and Elementary Schools and a variety of clubs and organizations throughout the United States.
