Doug Webster
“Steve was a very welcome addition to our tradeshow education schedule. His sessions about taking care of yourself (so you can take care of your customers) and managing a customer service crisis were the perfect complement to our other sessions focused on sales and marketing techniques. His knowledge and compassion were obvious as he interacted with the show attendees, and from my perspective, he was great to work with – completely drama-free”!
Kerry Boderman, Education Director, ASI

Participant at Trade Show, Dallas/Ft. Worth
Steve made an impressive impact as he engaged the audience and related to real business problems, we all experience. He made great points and gave relatable information about our theme. Steve is good at helping people reflect about my work, life, and on yourself. We need more classes like this! His keynote and workshops were very actionable”.

I enjoyed a different approach to his conflict reconciliation workshop. He had great insights, kept time well, and made it easy for me to apply the points at home, community, and my job. I strongly recommend Steve for any group seeking an engaging and motivational speaker”.
Marissa Spiegel- St Louis, MO
“Steve hit it out of the park! Even though I saw Steve’s presentation 3 years ago, he made it fresh, new, and engaging. He was extremely helpful to our group who are experiencing a lot of grief. I will be calling him again indeed”.
Greg Dixon, Maysville, MO
“Caring seems to be a “second subject” as it relates to management. Steve made me think about the way I care about my team, what I do to make everyone feel appreciated, and what I do to encourage care in individuals and help them feel valued. Steve’s presentation was engaging, encouraging, and motivational. Typically, the educational sessions in this industry are monotonous and intimidating as we all tend to be introverts. Steve made a considerable effort to help us all feel cared about and pushed us a little to consider others and not just the project objectives we have on our clipboards”.
