I have struggled with stage fright all of my life. Debilitating, paralyzing, irrational fear. Stephen has spoken profound truth to me and has been my coach in helping me experience freedom and joy when performing in front of people. He has helped me immensely and I am grateful. I highly recommend him to anyone who desires to be free of the mental and emotional lies that prevent one from functioning at their highest level. Thank you, Stephen. YOU ROCK!!!

Trevor Blake
New York Times Bestselling Author, Three Simple Steps:

“Above all other things, Stephen is authentic, and his integrity flows over into how he structures and runs his business. He is more interested in the success of his client than in his own needs and that brings results and a high level of satisfaction. In the last ten years I have built four successful virtual companies and hired probably close to a hundred consultants from time to time. That this is the first endorsement I have made on linkedin should tell you everything. It is true to say that Stephen is now a friend more than he is a consultant to me, but such relationships come only from experiencing total quality, consistently.”

“You made stepping in front of the cameras easy with the wonderful advice and insight you provided! Thanks again for all your great help”


Dr. Howard J. Fullman, MD

Medical Director and Chief of Staff at Kaiser Permanente, West Los Angeles:

“Thank you so much for all your great work preparing some of our physicians for the media launch of our new facility!” You were great in every way and were really sensitive with the doctors in helping them advance rapidly in their presentational skills. You helped make the launch a great success and we’ll call upon you again!”

Ron Seubert

Chief Executive Officer, Applied Precision, Inc.:

“Your practical, enthusiastic approach made such sense and you made it easy to communicate passion for what we’ve accomplished here at Applied Precision in public formats.”

Stephen Yamada-Heidner

Principal at Olson Kundig Architects:

“Stephen was hired to provide presentation and public speaking coaching to selected group of members of our staff. Drawing from his presentational coaching experience as well as casting/theatrical work, he directed the individual staffers to draw on their own personalities and personal experiences in their speaking styles. This in-house course was well received. We look forward to doing more with Stephen.”

A Michael Adams
President and Principal, Adams Financial Concepts; host Friday 4-5pm “About Money” Show AM1300 KKOL; Board SIFF:

“Even if you are a sophisticated accomplished orator, it is imperative you use Steve as a media coach. He spent several sessions of three hours video taping and coaching me. If my radio program has been a success, and I believe it has been, much of the credit goes to Steve. His insights, understanding, direction, and wisdom have been key to an effective program. If anything Steve is underpaid for the value he brings through coaching.”

Ann Marie Pomerinke
Cheif Executive Officer American Cancer Society Western Regional:

“Stephen, I can’t thank you enough for all your great help in making my address a great success. You were so easy to work with and had such insight! You actually made the process fun! Thanks again.”
