Joe Wiegand’s Theodore Roosevelt has been featured as a keynote speaker at national conferences, conventions, and leadership retreats to rave reviews throughout the nation.
Theodore Roosevelt is considered one of America’s greatest presidents. Our youngest president ever, TR was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize and the Congressional Medal of Honor. Our first conservation president, Theodore Roosevelt preserved two hundred and thirty million acres of parks, forests, national monuments, wildlife refuges, and game preserves. He led the nation to build the Panama Canal and sent the Great White Fleet steaming around the world. After his presidency, he hunted in Africa, toured Europe, ran as the Bull Moose Progressive, and explored the River of Doubt in the Amazon Jungle. His was the strenuous life, the glory of work, and the joy of living.
In Joe Wiegand, the legacy of Theodore Roosevelt has found a worthy vessel. Brilliant scholar and world class showman, Joe’s performances, uniquely crafted for each audience, live up to Alice Roosevelt Longworth’s observation: “Father wanted to be the bride at every wedding, the corpse at every funeral, and the baby at every Christening.”
