Using the Punchline services was great! Joy asked some thought provoking questions that really allowed me to focus on what was most important. I will definitely use their services again.

Working with Joy was the best thing I did to prepare for my book launch. She helped me distill my message for a radio audience and taught me practical, specific tips to make the most of these interviews. She was also personable and enthusiastic, which made the experience all the more comfortable and enjoyable. I highly recommend Punchline Speakers!

Punchline was so great to work with when we were looking for a keynote speaker for our event. Joy came to my rescue and quickly secured the speaker I wanted, the dates I needed, and was able to meet every need that I had for the speaking engagement. She also continued to check in to make sure everything went perfectly. I would absolutely recommend working with Punchline Speakers.

As a journalist and videographer moving into the nonprofit field, I really wanted to expand my public speaking skills but had no idea where to start. Joy was incredibly helpful in helping me write and execute a talk, but also in helping me understand the business aspects of moving toward a freelance model as a videographer.

Every outline, talk or pitch I brought to her, she had new ideas and ways of changing it that enhanced what I wanted to say without taking away from my core message or voice. Joy has a unique gift in meeting people right where they are at. Even if you’re brand new to public speaking or don’t have any gigs set up, I’d highly recommend working with her to get started on refining your message.

Joy is a great leader and remarkable listener, laser-focused on helping me grow. She went above and beyond with creative insights, pruning questions, and practical resources—her consulting gave me peace, clarity, and a deeper vision of where I need to go.

A session with Punchline provided just the help I needed while filming an online course. When I wasn’t really feeling like myself, I scheduled a call and received practical feedback and a plan for how to be natural and connective on camera. I walked away feeling more confident about how to connect with my audience, what to do with my hands, and tips for striking the balance between friendly and professional.

It has been a pleasure working with you and you did a great job answering our questions, giving us pertinent information, and letting us know what we needed to do to make this event run smoothly. We will definitely be keeping you in mind for possible future partnerships!
— Chris Tomokiyo, First Chinese Baptist Church of Los Angeles
My experience working with Punchline was FANTASTIC and my whole message approach was elevated by leaps and bounds, even from the eyes of my toughest/most helpful critic (my husband!) I’m SO grateful and can’t wait to connect again with you and your team. THANK YOU!!! It was truly a game-changer for me and will continue to impact how I approach my speaking!
— Bethany Hoang, Speaker - International Justice Mission
I just wanted to express my gratitude for a seamless event. From correspondence to execution everything went great. I would highly recommend Punchline Speakers for any corporate event.
— Vicky Courtright, Newfield Facilities Services Lead
I really can’t say thank you enough for your help with my development as a speaker. From speaking tips to my website and social media, this has been just the boost I needed. The time line you created is helping me reach the larger goal that I have had for so long and I’m excited to see where this takes me.
— Ruth Zylka, Blogger + Speaker
We enjoyed working with Punchline for scheduling a speaker. They were prompt in replying to emails and were able to handle all of questions. It is a very easy process.
— Debby Suchyta Team Development Director MOST Ministries
Joy is like a new pair of glasses with a fresh prescription (which I realize doesn’t sound that great on the surface). But, when you suddenly see things you’ve never noticed before and everything becomes a little more clear, concise, and easy, it’s hard to miss how important a viewpoint and perspective can be. A conversation with Joy is the vital missing ingredient in moving forward with whatever creative project it is.
