Scott Steinberg ON Speaking Back to top


Innovation isn’t rocket science, and staying ahead of the curve is far simpler than it seems...

SPEAKING.COM: What do you want people to learn/take away from your presentations?

STEINBERG: That innovation isn’t rocket science, and staying ahead of the curve is far simpler than it seems when you look at opportunities and challenges from the right perspective. Far more often than not, simple changes or slight tweaks in thinking (i.e. evolutionary changes) can prove every bit as powerful as game-changing breakthroughs and discoveries (revolutionary changes) on a day-to-day basis.

I’ve interviewed literally hundreds of market-leading experts and authorities on the topics of future-proofing and new trends. The most common pieces of advice for success in life and business they give are "don't be afraid to fail," "think positive," "take action," "learn and improve from your efforts."

You don't need legions of case studies, journals, white papers, etc. to transform a business, transform a life, or transform a career - you just need to change your mindset. Study after study shows that the attributes that matter most are skills that anyone can learn and possess like improvisation, communications, strategy and resilience - nothing more, nothing less. In other words, anything is possible when you put your mind to it.

SPEAKING.COM: What kind of special prep work do you do prior to an event? How do you prepare for your speaking engagements?

STEINBERG: We interview clients, key stakeholders, and event attendees extensively to make sure we’re getting the story straight from the horse’s mouth, and to make sure we’re equipping them with the actionable tools and insights that they need to be more successful - before, during, and after these programs.

We conduct in-depth research into the shape of changing industries, markets, trends, and behaviors. Most of all, we make a point to make ourselves available throughout the journey to help add value wherever possible. Being in the business of education and empowerment, we love helping people succeed!

SPEAKING.COM: Have you had any particularly memorable speaking engagements / unusual situations arise while on the road?

STEINBERG: Recently, I gave a speech to dozens of the financial sector’s most preeminent business leaders. I was explaining how everyone has the power to innovate and succeed despite disruption and pointing out that in today’s topsy-turvy business world people are in fact unknowingly practicing basic principles of innovation and disruption already. During the program the presentation being displayed to them kept cutting out due to a faulty projector’s technical malfunctions. Afterwards, several of these decorated executives walked up in amazement and chuckled, telling me how much they loved the way in which I seamlessly kept the narrative going – and flowed into a joke illustrating how I was practicing these talents right as we spoke.

Motivation, inspiration, and practical, real-world solutions are what we bring to the table.

SPEAKING.COM: What types of audiences would most benefit from your message?

STEINBERG: Anyone that’s looking to make a positive change, seeking to grow or operate a business more successfully, or determined to find ways to adapt to whatever the future will bring. Motivation, inspiration, and practical, real-world solutions are what we bring to the table.

SPEAKING.COM: Which of your keynote speaking topics are your favorites and why?

STEINBERG: Leadership. Innovation. Change Management. New Trends and Technologies. Marketing and Sales. Most of all though: Resiliency and how to do more with less.

The research is staggering. Organizations like Amazon and Google create competitive advantage by consistently experimenting with and learning from new ideas. Individuals are proven to succeed more frequently by thinking fast on their feet and resiliently forging ahead despite setbacks - not by possessing greater IQ or inborn talent.

Constant, ongoing change and evolution seem to be crucial ingredients for both personal and professional success, and with a little strategic thinking and forethought, anyone can make them work in their favor. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you’re persistent and open-minded.

Once you realize what’s happening out there, you can’t turn away, as millions of people’s lives literally depend on it.

SPEAKING.COM: What inspired you to start doing speaking engagements?

STEINBERG: A passion for educating and empowering others – giving people the insights, tools, and capabilities that they need to succeed isn’t so much a profession as a calling. Which means you don’t choose this career path so much as it chooses you. I’ve been an entrepreneur for 20 years: Every day you wake up to face uncertainty, risk, and not knowing what the future will bring. Change has always come naturally. But in fast-moving and highly-disruptive times, especially economic downturns, you start to get a sense of just how unnatural the concept may seem to others.

Likewise, you also begin to realize – especially seeing how many friends’, family members’, businesses’, brands’, and households’ fortunes and lives are often overturned – that we receive few formal tools, training, and education to deal with these kinds of upheavals. If you look, study after study shows that flexibility and resilience are key to survival. Once you realize what’s happening out there, you can’t turn away, as millions of people’s lives literally depend on it – you make a point to speak up and do something about the situation.

SPEAKING.COM: How do you keep your audience engaged and actively listening during your keynotes? Do you use case studies, personal stories and/or in your speeches?

STEINBERG: We use it all: jokes, stories, surveys, polls, fun and entertaining tales and examples. The key is to keep audiences guessing, and provide practical, meaningful stories to which they can relate. After all, these case studies and metaphors are the equivalent of mental shorthand, and offer an engaging medium through which to provide others with all sorts of little pearls of wisdom that they can take away and remember. Just because it’s educational and informative doesn’t mean it has to be boring!

SPEAKING.COM: What are some of the successes you've helped clients achieve?

STEINBERG:

  • Helping hundreds of government officials reengineer the shape of tomorrow’s cities.
  • Transforming the way in which literally millions of people look at the concept of innovation.
  • Providing the leaders of today’s largest finance, banking, technology, insurance, and real estate firms with the tools they need to create cultures of creativity and ownership.
  • Turning an entire online app store’s outlook around.
  • Helping today’s most successful associations and businesses find more effective ways to connect with new generations, and fundamentally redefine the way in which we look at risk, management, teamwork, and leadership strategies.

    Scott Steinberg: Change Management Speaker


    Scott Steinberg reveals that one of the biggest mistakes people and organizations lies within how they react to fear. When confronted with hard times or dips in a brand’s popularity, too often companies refuse to try new things, instead grounding themselves in the same old ways in which they’ve built their past successes.

    Unfortunately “more of the same” is the equivalent of business suicide in a world where markets, technologies, and competitors are constantly evolving. “If you remain static while the roadmap has shifted, it’s the equivalent of putting yourself in cruise control and going headlong into a tree,” Steinberg relates. “Because if the path sits there in front of you and it changes suddenly, you’ve got to be able to react.”

    Scott Steinberg: Innovation Speaker


    Drawing from his latest research, Scott Steinberg shares how some of the biggest companies have stayed on top of their game for various decades. He spotlights energy giant Shell. Instead of getting stuck in old ways leaders there focus on keeping alive that entrepreneurial spark that has gotten the company so far in the first place, viewing everyone in the company as an innovator.

    Shell’s empowerment training is built on a very simple analogy, he explains: “Teaching tomorrow’s leaders that celebrating tradition is not about worshipping the ashes, but rather finding ways to constantly tend and kindle the flame.”
