What Clients Are Saying
Steve has certainly changed my life and its purpose. He is the rare individual who navigates complex topics with easeâ€¦ who can impart groundbreaking ideas with charm and subtlety, allowing participants to remain open to his unique message. Iâ€™ve personally witnessed a â€œcold roomâ€ become charged with purpose, due in no small part to delivery as well as sheer force of personality. Iâ€™ve observed Steve in front of hundreds of strangers, in formal rounds and in small peer groups and noticed in each a man who masters the resonant art of communication with an unparalleled grace.

I have had the privilege of working with Steve Fredlund in many settings â€“ large groups, small groups, cross-cultural settings and one on one. Steve constantly brings excellent content. His warm, friendly style engages with audiences of all ages. Heâ€™s comfortable talking with a group of national leaders in Rwanda, Africa or training a group of Our Response volunteers in East Central Minnesota. With natural leadership and an easy smile he makes the necessary inroads required for passing along important information.
