Description

The Porter House KC presents its 2nd Speaker Series session of the year featuring Joey Thomas ‪on February 21st‬ at 5:30pm. Joey will talk about his inspiring entrepreneurial experience as a results-driven leader with over a decade of influence and positively impacting the people in his community. Mr. Thomas has a true passion for development, and he noticed a need for positive influence within his neighborhood. At the young age of 24 he created an organization, The KnowJoey? Foundation,with nothing but a dream and a mission to encourage life changes through education & entrepreneurship. Originally, for the benefit of disadvantaged young black males, that mission evolved to include coordinated community efforts that benefited all. That organization today is well-known within the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. To date, thousands have been given free haircuts, free food, and given access to numerous resources such as health check-ups, economic assistance and school supplies. The KnowJoey? Foundation has given those who may have had a step-back, a way to move forward. Operating with a principle of Servant leadership, he serves by exhibited dynamic qualities in listening, empathy, awareness, foresight, stewardship and commitment to the growth of people. An impeccable reputation not only with his leadership – but with his clippers. A true master of the barber art, Joseph has had the opportunity to style and groom individuals from all walks of life and influence. He has direct management experience and developed skills in employee relations, performance management, engagement, policy and procedure development, coaching/ training, budget management and able to make quick, knowledgeable decisions to support business and client goals.
