Keynote Topics

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Turn up the volume on diversity, equity, and inclusion! Steve will spend an interactive music-filled hour with your team, showcasing how amazing things can happen when organizations embrace DEI. Steve will take your group on a musical journey to discover:

  • How a washed-up 70s hard rock band collaborated with an upstart hip hop act to revitalize their career and send hip hop into the mainstream.
  • Why an obvious mistake was left in one of classic rock’s greatest hits, and why it is is so important to give yourself permission to experiment… and even fail.
  • Where countless legendary bands went to soak in a special culture and create amazing music.
  • How Paul Simon went all-in on diversity and inclusion, even risking lives to do so.
  • The magical place in the deep south where Black and White worked as one at the height of America’s mid-60s racial unrest.

DEI is normally a dry topic that people find uncomfortable discussing. But using inspiring stories and an incredible soundtrack, Steve makes diversity, equity, inclusion, and all aspects of great culture, rock!

Based on Steve’s best-selling marketing book Brand Like a Rock Star, this keynote energizes, entertains, and educates. Through stories, songs, and videos, Steve leaves your team with some key takeaways such as:

  • The one thing even more important than quality to your business
  • The secret to staying consistent in changing times
  • How your company’s goals could be putting your success in jeopardy
  • How to use your competitor’s strengths against them in order to fuel your success

This high-energy presentation will leave your group charged up, and it can be highly customized to suit any industry, including financial services, entertainment, health care, and tech.
