A Short Documentary about Steven:
Steven grew up in the United States Northwest. Born in Seattle, raised in Idaho. He loves the city and understands small town values. His father was a minister and his mother a school teacher. That might explain why he is so comfortable on the stage and devoted to providing content that leads to real life change. He is an entrepreneur, as well as an effective communicator.
Steven’s experience in leadership roles has included non-profits, business news, employee recruitment and founding his speaking and leadership development firm – Aurora Pointe. Steven Iwersen is a Professional Member of the National Speakers Association. He is a Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) – a recognition earned by only about 500 speakers worldwide. He is currently serving as the Co-Host for Voices of Experience (VOE) the NSA’s audio & video magazine. He served as the Chairperson of the National Chapter Leadership Committee in 2013. During that time he was presented the Presidential Award of Distinguished Service.
When he is not traveling the country delivering his programs, he enjoys being at home in Kansas City with his family. He also enjoys fly fishing, jazz music, writing, early morning walks, bike riding, great coffee and spending time with his closest friends. He raised three boys and now is a young grandpa – he has six granddaughters and two grandsons to adore!
PERSONAL NOTE FROM STEVEN:
I believe that it is “as bad to tell a lie, as it is to bore people with the truth.” When I speak to a group of people (a small group of 10 or thousands), I know that the best way to convey a truth, inspire action and have long-term application is to be genuine and entertaining. We will have fun. It will not be a lecture or just another presentation. It will be more of a conversation. You can count on stories, genuine energy and I will involve the audience in a variety of ways.
People frequently tell me, “It felt like you were talking just to me.”
That’s my purpose – to speak to the heart and encourage people to take action on the things that matter most.
