He is based in Orlando, Florida and loves traveling to meet his clients around the world.

Testimonials 6

  • Stephen was a HUGE success, the audience was PUMPED by what he had to say, he is SO incredibly personable, riveting and the audience was enthralled. He stayed for lunch, talking and answering questions – he was perfect.



  • “The most common feedback I heard was that they would have liked to have had another 30 minutes. To get feedback from a scientific audience on a topic that is not a scientific presentation that a session could have been longer is exceptional and unheard of. Once again, a heart-felt thank you.”

    Bristol Meyer Squibb

  • Stephen’s passion for innovation is infectious. His mandate to focus innovation relentlessly on well-articulated problems has caused an internal shift in mindset and approach for our innovators. Stephen delivers both in a way that is truly inspirational and actionable.

    Laurie Heltsley

    Director of Innovation and Strategic Projects, Procter & Gamble

  • Stephen brought incredible energy and highly relevant messages that made it possible for us to rethink our innovation principles and extend them to our customer-facing functions … Stephen has a fun and highly infectious style and could be an asset to any organization trying to make innovation a reality.

    Robin Torgerson

    Vice President of U.S. Sales Excellence, 3M

  • “Your interactive presentation captivated the audience and received great feedback from attendees.”

    Steve Craft

    Deputy Director of Strategic Relations Office, NASA

  • “The success of your presentation began long before you stepped in front of the audience. You delivered much more than a speech; you delivered lasting results. I would highly recommend you to any organizations who is serious about making innovation a reality.”
