Additional Testimonials


        I’ve worked with Joe Incandela on the annual St. Thomas Aquinas symposium for the past several years. He runs a top-notch event, well-attended by students and community members. Joe’s management skills, expertise, and proficiency with technology, made the process and event run smoothly, down to the fine details. He creates a positive and comfortable atmosphere among diverse co-workers, promoting productive communication with innovative results, as well as personal development and learning among the team members. Moreover, Joe appreciates and acknowledges the contributions of others. Joe’s cordial personality and consideration of others is notable and welcoming to visitors and guests, as well. Dr. Incandela has a comprehensive experience that is a valuable asset and resource for anyone in higher education.
