This week's speaker is Joi Sumpton, the inventor and President of Step ‘n Wash, the first and only self-retracting step that makes it possible for children to safely wash their hands in a public restroom.
Since its launch in 2007, Step ‘n Wash has helped over 1 billion children and people of short stature safely wash their hands. Step ‘n Wash can be found in airports, shopping malls, hospitals, restaurants, movie theaters, zoos, aquariums and amusement parks. The International Association of Amusement Parks recognized Step ‘n Wash as the Best New Product in 2007. With only 2% of patents becoming successful, Joi was honored to be recognized by the United States Patent Office as their Spark of Genius Inventor in 2011.
With an estimated 7 million public restrooms in the USA, Joi looks forward to achieving her goal of having a Step ‘n Wash in every public restroom so young children can wash their hands to help keep them safe from the flu and common cold.
Personally, I believe this is a ‘not to miss’ speaker that will clearly be in the Top 5 speakers The Rotary Club of Dunwoody has heard this year. Joi’s great quality is that one can relate to her easily. Her story is authentic and very INSPIRING.
Do not miss this speaker!
