Direct, Fun, Lighthearted, Informative

So you have an event coming up and you need to make it the best one ever.  The venue is under contract, the caterer is coming up with the menu.  The entertainment is putting their act together.  All you have left to do is get the best keynote speaker possible within your budget.  Where do you go?

What are you looking for in a speaker?  Entertaining?  Knowledgable? Lighthearted? Fun? Informative? Great story teller? Someone who will keep the audience engaged?  Does this person even exist?

You may be tired of the same canned presentations you have heard time and again.  You really want someone with real life and relatable stories that will touch your in a special way.  In other words, you want the speaker to make you look good.

A Little About Steve Reed, Keynote and Conference Speaker

Steve is no stranger to being up front and on stage.  It seemed like the tradition was to bring the preacher’s kids up front any opportunity that availed itself. I lost track of the number of times I was “volentold” that I would be doing something in the upcoming program.

In the early 1990’s, Steve was introduced to Toastmasters International.  He found a home.  It was there that he started to work on his craft.  For over 25 years, Steve was at a Toastmasters meeting almost every week.  One of the fun components of the organization was the contests.  He lost track of all the awards received at different levels.  Steve learned how to develop 5 to 30 minute presentations. Steve have even been known to do one hour+ presentations.

Over the years Steve developed a number of different types of presentations, from the serious and technical to the fun and somewhat humorous.  One of his favorites is a speech titled, “Wow, I didn’t see that coming.”  It’s all about the first 6 months of marriage and dealing with kidney stones, herniated discs and shingles.  He loves to make people laugh, and this one fills the desire.

As an executive coach, licensed through the Ziglar organization, Steve enjoys opportunities where he can be an encourager, bringing a plan for success.  As a conference speaker and panelist, Steve is experienced at engaging with both others on the panel as well as keeping the audience focused on the material being discussed.

    Steve is a very knowledgable coach and guide

    Steve is a very knowledgeable coach and guide. I took his “Ziglar Choose To Win” coaching course. He shares real world experiences, brings humor into his coaching. I personally enjoy our discussions around how relevant the teachings of the Bible is in real life each and every day in ALL aspects of our life. I didn’t realize how much I needed some coaching to get back on track. Life has too many distractions and we forget how important it is to feed our mind and soul to stay grounded during good times, bad times, slow times and busy times in our life.

    Thank you Steve for reigniting my persistence to feed my mind and soul and keeping me accountable. Personally, professionally and spirually, I am more aware of who I am, where I am and where I want to be. This has helped open more doors and be a positive influence to others. I highly recommend Steve Reed if you are looking for someone who can coach you in many areas of your life. He is blessed with a calling to help others.

    He helped guide them to a more positive self-image...

    “I met Steve several years ago and can tell you that he is passionate about people. I have watched him work with people in an intimate and safe environment helping them to acquire a better understanding of what motivates them, how personal negative tapes they listen to have been a defeating influence in how they feel about themselves, and why they instinctively react to certain life situations the way they do. He has helped guide them into a more positive self- image and learn positive truths about who they really are.”

    “I have been working with Steve for about a month now. I have been so blessed that I was able to connect with him in my life. He is guiding me to know what true joy is in my life. He brings me back to the basic of who I am and who I was created by. He reminds me to slow down and take care of myself and remember that God is always with me and he will walk with me through anything that comes my way. I am excited to continue my journey with him to finally feel like I am living as my true self and the life I was meant to live.”

    Steve's coaching techniques led me to discover my potential...

    “A coach helps others to discover their own definition of life and success. Their purpose is to help people grow and improve both personally and professionally. Steve Reed, my personal coach and mentor, has guided me to find the missing paradigm that has kept me from growing personally and professionally. Steve’s coaching techniques led me in discovering my potential, my calling and more important, my passion and vision. Steve powerfully, yet gently, guided me in an empowering, effective and energizing process to help me find skills that I never knew I had. Steve Reed continues to help me discover my definition of life and success.”

    ~Harold H. Educator, Executive Coach

    Steve lives and breathes encouragement...

    About your Coach

    Steve Reed is a certified life, marriage , & pre-marriage coach with nearly 30 years of experience.  He is skilled at identifying issues and peeling back the layers to get to the core of what’s holding people back.  It could be something someone said or did that caused you to build an artificial ceiling or roadblock.  Until the issue is identified, they will never reach their full potential.

    Life Coach

     Balance. Better performance. Goals. Progress. Success. Positive mindset.  These are just a few of the topics busy people need to work on.

    Do you seem to be stuck in the past, holding on to past hurts and roadblocks?  You have probably heard the phrace, “You can’t see the forest for the trees.”  That’s where Steve comes in.  With his decades of coaching, he has the ability to observe and help people make course corrections. Abert Einstein said, “We can not solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”  Is it time for a new way of thinking?  Would a second set of eyes help you see things more objectively?  Maybe it’s time to get unstuck and hire a coach.

    Licensed Ziglar Choose to Win Coach

    Executive Coach

    In 1981, Steve was first introduced to the master motivator, Mr. Zig Ziglar.  This event set Steve on a course of learning from one of the best teachers he could have had. After reading Mr. Ziglar’s books, listening to his tapes & CD’s, and attending events where he was speaking, Steve was well on his way to implementing many of the tried and true ideologies.

    In the early 90’s, Steve started coaching friends, clients and his sales people helping them understand their personality temperaments better by using the DISC methods. Very quickly, he found himself coaching and mentoring people, sharing many of the same insights that he had learned from Mr. Ziglar.

    Fast forward to the summer of 2019.  Steve’s friend Tom Ziglar, proud son of Zig Ziglar, launched his first solo book, Choose to Win.  Shortly after the release of this great book, Tom put the call out for success focused coaches to teach the Choose to Win mindset.  Steve was invited to be in the first licensing class of Ziglar Choose to Win coaches.

    Today, Steve uses this time proven process to help clients become better in seven key areas of their lives:  Mental, Spiritual, Physical, Financial, Family, Career, and Personal all while helping them maintain balance.  In addition, Steve helps people develop their “why” and the grit they need to succeed.  He wraps his coaching up with the “perfect start” to each day and helping clients with a better understanding of what their purpose is in life.

    Steve hosts regular FREE webinars designed to share some of the richness of the Ziglar mindset with perspective clients.
