This event is coordinated and hosted by Current, the Greater Green Bay Chamber’s young professionals group targeting individuals age 21-40.

Destination: Dignity

Would you like to be the leader you wish your leader was?

Did you know that we get treated in life the way we teach people to treat us?

Would you like to openly communicate better with your co-workers?

Attendees will reflect on the difference between dignity and respect. Servant Leadership strives to understand and dignify people for what they do because of who they are. Joe’s story with his own family, particularly his teenage son Alex, moves audiences in a thoughtful, meaningful way. As well as makes them laugh, because life’s kind of funny! His stories of family and corporate life will bring joy to the room.

Build a Business and Build a Life through Servant Leadership

The premise is simple: Raise your company or department like you would raise a family: strict but fair, treat each person as unique and celebrate individual victories. Attendees will leave with the most powerful Servant Leadership question a person could ask – a life-changing question. A question that is at the heart of all Servant Leaders and can heal and build up relationships.

About the Speaker


Joe Kiedinger
Prophit Marketing, Inc.

When starting his own advertising agency, J. Kiedinger Advertising, Joe realized that he didn’t understand the true ingredients of great marketing. His first real effort at a grand opening failed, wasting tens of thousands of his client’s money. Fortunately for Joe, that client was rooted in the Servant Leadership philosophy.

Joe spent years interviewing and learning from great companies – local, national and international. Through this he identified the seven key ingredients to building a successful business. He calls this seven-staged system the Prophit Marketing System. The system worked so well that he changed the name of company to Prophit Marketing – combining the historical prophet (his journey of learning from others) with making a profit. The companies he researched through his interviews all had these seven key ingredients. Along the journey he realized that these same elements, when rooted in a Servant Leadership framework, serve people in their personal life as well. Rooted in everything he learned was the realization that interpersonal relationships are the key to growing a successful life and business.

Joe began studying Servant Leadership as the essence of great leadership, as well as great parenting. The realization that running a successful business is no different that running a successful household was the motivation of creating the world’s first interpersonal connection tool called the About Me Card. Joe’s online About Me Card system helps build relationships quickly.

It’s this message of dignity that motivates and inspires Joe every day to spread the word with his story telling and his knack for performance. Joe was a performer on a cruise ship in his younger years and he uses his talents to entertain and inspire through workshops and speaking engagements.

Joe and his wife Danica own several businesses in the Green Bay area, have four wonderful children, and a dog Harvey.
