        Bruce Hanft, Realtor, Jenny Pruitt & Associates
I have heard many speakers in my 30 years of Fortune 500 business experience, but none as compelling as Steve. He has the unique ability to share life and business experiences that result in true reflection and change in both your business and personal life.”

        Susan Carlson, International Organization of CEOs
“Steve is authentic, real, and connects easily with the audience. He is genuine, thus believable…his lessons learned have broad applications for business and personal relationships.”

         Kenneth Kolker, CEO, May Merchandising Company, May Department Stores International Inc.
“I would like to congratulate you for conceiving and carrying out one of the greatest marketing strategies in years. I congratulate you and your fine organization for recognizing and utilizing a unique marketing happening.”

          Carrie Shivers, Primerica Financial Services
“This program has saved my life! I am rethinking my priorities and am committed to play my “A” game at all times. I am very thankful.”

          Matt McKenna, Director National Accounts, Autotrader.com
“In our daily lives there are so many distractions that can chip away at our productivity. Having a process helps keep me on the right track every day. The increased focus on my goals equips me with the ability to identify what truly is a priority versus what is a distraction. The passion that you have for what you do is evident and it is evident that the tools that you provide help people stay focused and create results.”

          David J. Danhof, Real Estate Group of Atlanta
“Our members certainly left both inspired and soul searching. We received an abundance of positive feedback from those who attended the meeting.”

          Barry J. Guld, Young Entrepreneurs Organization
“Your presentation about the challenges, successes and failures of growing a small business in America was fantastic! It was instrumental to making this year’s YEO World Link University an unconditional success. Our members found your presentation powerful, riveting and full of valuable insights. Personally, I have found myself using some of your messages in recent discussion with my business associates.”

          Chris Bouchard, Westwood Architectural Specialties ltd.
“I just wanted to write and thank you again for your inspiring presentation. It was truly one of the highlights of the convention for me. While I am truly impressed by your success, I am most inspired by the depth of your character, which truly shined through during your talk. You are a great example to me of the kind of man I wish to be – a successful business man who has strong spiritual values, an abundance of energy, and a sincere concern for the people around him.”

          K. Boynton Smith, Senior VP, McGriff, Seibels & Williams, Inc.
“In these challenging times Steve delivered a motivational and inspiring message to our sales group, encouraging and pushing us to Think Big and to Take Action. Our sales force left the meeting, energized and equipped to achieve large goals in 2009. We received very positive feedback from the entire group, seasoned pro and young rookie alike. Steve, thank you for kicking our year off in the right direction. We are ready to Think Big and make it happen!”

          Griff Griffies, Vistage International Chair
“Thanks again for your presentation. The members got more “take home” than may have been evidenced by our brief recall session. On a scale of 1 to 5…with 5 being the highest…you received an average of 4.5 for “value of content” and 5.0 for “presentation style.” These are excellent evaluations from this Group. This is also the first time in my 17 years of chairing Vistage, (formerly TEC) groups that a speaker took the time to call members prior to the presentation to find out what challenges they were currently facing. Thank you for making the extra effort with my team, it personalized your presentation.”

          Jerry Howarth, Toronto Blue Jays
“Thanks again for a wonderful message at our chapel. God has really blessed you. Our players have talked about your words a number of times since that day. Keep up with God’s work and reaching out to others.”

          Melissa Frye, BAA, ERT, Pediatric Gastroenterology & Nutritional Support, P.C.
“I wanted to thank you again for taking time out of your busy schedule to speak at our annual fall conference. You were truly an inspiration to so many. After you left and again at the end of the conference, I was approached by so many attendees, vendors, and board members who stated how impressed they were from your motivational yet entertaining presentation. You delivered everything you said you would and more. All of the feedback I received was 100% positive! Several people mentioned how they would be contacting you to have you speak at their individual companies for their employees. You really made an impact on me and everyone else who attended. It has been a pleasure working with you, getting to know you along with all you represent and bring to your speaking engagements for our benefit.”

            Peter A. Antimarino, Harbison-Walker Refractories

“First, I wanted to thank you one more time for joining us in Ojai, California for our annual Contractor/Installer (C/I) Seminar meeting.  As you may know, this meeting is held exclusively for our very best customers and is by far our company’s biggest entertainment expenditure for the year.  Having fun and building personal relationships are key objectives for this meeting but our technical sessions, when we technically update our clients on our products and services, is also a very important component of this event.  Integrating your three keynote messages throughout our two day technical program really energized our program, and helped us cohesively implement our Believe In Better theme.

We asked the meeting attendees to help us evaluate each speaker, and your three talks were each rated extremely high – obviously your message resonated with our group.  Here are some specific comments that I pulled off the surveys:

•    ‘Powerful’
•    ‘Inspiring!’
•    ‘Totally captivating – such real information.’
•    ‘Perfect for meeting theme (Believe In Better)’
•    ‘Outstanding presentation and would have been great to have the wives hear this as well.’
•    ‘Thanks for spending the money to bring us a quality, inspirational speaker.’

Steve, there is no doubt that you were an integral part of a very successful C/I Seminar XXXVII, and I am certain that you’ll have a positive impact on the lives of almost every single one of our 235 attendees.”
