Some Speaking Testimonials

“Attending a Steve Chapman talk is like a annual dose of connecting with what it is to be human again.  Amazing talk and a privilege”

Steve is a rare creature – someone who has all the corporate credibility and status that you could wish for, but manages to retain his essential and creative self at the same time. He is a walking advertisement for what he espouses, which is the blending of process and systems with pure creativity and play. The energy he injects into the room with his persuasive good sense and infectious enjoyment of his subject lasts a long time in the memory. Worth seeking out!”

Once again, Steve’s talk was the highlight of the entire conference.  Brilliant

“Steve’s session has altered me in ways that I still haven’t fully made sense of.  I found it inspirational and moving and a great example of the learning that can be accomplished in a very short time given the proper experiential learning environment”

As a speaker Steve is engaging, inspiring, funny and most of all really made me think about the constraints I have put on my imagination and creativity since I became a grown-up.

“Steve is quite exceptional.  His style of speaking and presenting in a simple and humorous way ensures everyone is able to absorb his message and leave with an abundant amount of food for thought.”

“Steve totally embodies his subject matter – creative, vulnerable, experimental, good humoured and, most importantly of all, human.”

“Dressing as a pirate to give a talk on rediscovering our child-like creativity and sense of adventure is the most committed thing I have ever seen a conference speaker do.”
