Mobilising as a positive force in society has become an essential prerequisite in business. It requires extraordinary agility, deep courage and connection with a clearly articulated and enduring purpose (its north star). 

Did you know employees of a purpose-driven company are more engaged, more satisfied and 3x more likely to stay? Or that 89% of clients believe a purpose-driven company will deliver the highest quality products and services? What’s more, meaningful brands connected to human well-being outperform the stock market by 120%. 

Purpose-driven companies attract and retain the best talent, build loyalty and trust with customers, and increase returns for shareholders.

Identify a higher purpose for enterprise and generate profitable, sustainable growth.

Stephen offered our business the insight, clarity and direction to truly co-create meaning with our people. The opportunity to create a movement rather than deliver a top-down communications campaign affords an important step-change for leaders and communicators alike. Rebekah Miles, Head of Communications, Sanofi Australia & NZ

Stephen is one of the most remarkable human beings I’ve ever met. His dedication to creating purpose-driven cultures is fueled by a sizzling intellect and deep compassion. Stephen understands culture is the lifeblood of every community, and organisations intentional about culture create an environment where all can thrive. Cameron Burgess, Impact Investment Strategist

Stephen is a gifted communicator who imbues his views with an infectious passion. His understanding of how social media, social marketing and movements are built from the grass roots up (rather than the boardroom down) is second-to-none. Ashley Howden, CEO KJR

Stephen’s command over the way influence spreads in the digital world is industry-leading, as is the methodology he’s developed to track, measure, map and turn this information into a tremendously useful decision-making tool. Jonathan Fields, International bestselling author and founder of Good Life Project and The 108 Conscious Business Collective.

Stephen has a gargantuan breadth and depth of knowledge of social business, trends, behaviours and analytics. He has a unique ability to capitalise on the opportunities that present to enable us to engage and create meaningful connection. Will Noble, Managing Director, Human Systems International
