Many of you I know well.
Most of you, I hope to get to meet one day.
Regardless, I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself.
My name is Petar Josic. I’m 35 years old.
Born in #windsorontario (just across from #detroit ) to parents that fled the former Yugoslavia with the hopes of giving me and my siblings a better life. I currently reside in Toronto, ON.
I have a younger brother and three older sisters.
I am happily married to my high-school sweetheart and have an 18-month-old son named Karlo.
I love traveling and usually spend my summers discovering the most remote locations in #croatia 🇭🇷
I’m a massive football fan and an avid supporter of Tottenham Hotspurs, which naturally means that I despise Arsenal.
I love going for late-night walks in different neighborhoods throughout the city. 🚶♂️
I have a serious coffee addiction and I actually cannot start my day without a fresh cup of java. ☕
I graduated from @waynestate with a degree in Business Administration.
My first ever job was at the age of 15 working at the local donut joint that my friend’s parents owned 🍩
I’ve never stopped grinding since.
In 2016, I cofounded Bespoken Bureau and built the agency from the ground up. In that time, I booked over 3000 keynote speakers for conferences and events all over the world.
Last June, I stepped back from my role so that I could be the best father I could be to Karlo. In that time, I also decided to exit the company I helped create and launch Spoken Artists.
I absolutely love my job. I am most passionate about working with amazing keynote speakers and collaborating with event planners to produce the most incredible experiences for audiences around the world. I am inspired by speakers who refuse to accept the status quo and remind us all that human potential has no limits. It is truly my life mission, and privilege, to share that sense of wonder with audiences globally.
I can’t wait for the official launch of Spoken Artists on Jan. 4 and for all of you to join us on the ride. I’ll end with one of my favorite quotes by SA client, Melissa Arnot.
“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
