What they are saying about Steve's speaking gigs


  • AN ENDORSEMENT OF STEVE RAE What is the difference between a ‘good’ public speaker and a ‘great’ public speaker? We have all experienced both. A ‘great’ public speaker is one who has an engaging personality and can reach his or her audience. He or she has an awesome command of the subject material being presented and presents the material in a colourful and entertaining manner. A great public speaker has an interesting story, a strong voice and noticeable presence. Steve Rae is a ‘great’ public speaker. He has great passion for the topics he chooses to speak on, and clearly loves to speak about these topics. I recently instructed 4th year students at Ryerson University in Broadcast Advertising and Sales. When Steve Rae accepted my invitation to speak to the class about “What makes people do the things they do”, I had several colleagues in the industry ask if they could join the class and listen to Steve speak. His reputation precedes him. If you ever have the opportunity to attend a presentation by Steve Rae, don’t miss it!! Maxine Armstrong CHUM Radio, Account Manager

  • Dear Steve
    Dear Steve; I could thank you for taking time out of your day to speak to our students. But I'm not going to do that. What I am going to do is thank you for inspiring our students to do and be better. Since your presentation, I've seen a powerful improvement in the copy coming out of my writing class. The students that "hate" writing are now showing an infectious enthusiasm for the power of the industry thay are about to enter. You influence has reached far beyond the individuals that were in that room. Your comments, concepts and observations are spreading through the entire program like sunshine at sunrise. I hope the experience was as positive for you as it was for us. I'd love to have you back! Sincerely, Sivana Babchishin Instructor, NAIT Radio/Television Program Edmonton, Alberta
