Steve was the Customer Service Consultant to the 8th World Swimming Championships. His innovative Customer Service Strategies were used for the first time ever at this major world sporting event. When a senior delegation from the Sydney Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (SOCOG) saw these strategies in action, the decision was instant - these same techniques were to be used again at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.
Steve has a Masters Degree from the University of Alberta.
He is a highly sought after keynote speaker, and seminar leader where he combines humour with practical insights into specific strategies to improve corporate culture and customer service. Steve’s presentations consistently rate highest – for his practicality, his informal approach, and his capacity to motivate people into action.
Steve’s clients cover organisations across a wide variety of industry sectors - from the Flight Centre to General Motors, from Dover Court International School in Singapore to the Royal Yacht Britannia in Scotland, from the University of Western Australia to Australian Institute of Management.
