Steve Chapman

Adventurer in spontaneity & creativity, Blogger & Artist

Steve’s talks have a reputation for being something rather special.  Rather than lecture, he invites the audience into his world, to join him on an adventure to explore some important and profound questions as to what it means to be a human being, particularly in these things we call organisations. He brings playfulness, curiosity and creativity to any subject.

“Attending a Steve Chapman talk is like a annual dose of connecting with what it is to be human again.  Amazing talk and a privilege”

Steve is a rare creature – someone who has all the corporate credibility and status that you could wish for, but manages to retain his essential and creative self at the same time. He is a walking advertisement for what he espouses, which is the blending of process and systems with pure creativity and play. The energy he injects into the room with his persuasive good sense and infectious enjoyment of his subject lasts a long time in the memory. Worth seeking out!”

Once again, Steve’s talk was the highlight of the entire conference.  Brilliant

“Steve’s session has altered me in ways that I still haven’t fully made sense of.  I found it inspirational and moving and a great example of the learning that can be accomplished in a very short time given the proper experiential learning environment”

As a speaker Steve is engaging, inspiring, funny and most of all really made me think about the constraints I have put on my imagination and creativity since I became a grown-up.
