Steven S. Little is a much sought after expert on the subject of business growth and the future of opportunity. As a former President of three fast-growth companies, he now advises thousands of leaders of growing organizations and communities each year. For over ten years, Steve was Also a Senior Consultant for Inc. magazine.
He is the author of the best-selling books The 7 Irrefutable Rules of Small Business Growth and The Milkshake Moment: Overcoming Stupid Systems, Pointless Policies and Muddled Management to Realize Real Growth.
His book Duck and (re)Cover is the ultimate business owner's guide to prevailing and prospering through tough economic times. It questions much of the "conventional wisdom" we all hear about recessions and instead offers an irreverently common-sense approach to survival and growth in the midst of economic uncertainty. This book focuses on the most significant challenges and opportunities facing embattled businesses today.
He also regularly speaks for some of the world's leading organizations, including UPS, Microsoft, FedEx, Bank of America, SunTrust Bank, Echostar, National Association of Home Builders, Consumer Electronics Associations, National Sporting Goods Association, Million Dollar RoundTable, American Banking Association, Associated General Contractors, Retail Industries Leaders Association and over 80 chambers of commerce. His style has been described as "real-world" "highly credible" and "uniquely engaging."
From 1988 thru 1999, Steve was President of three fast growth companies. Both FAME, Inc. and Erb Industries, Inc. achieved profitable growth rates of over 500% during his tenure.
Steve is a graduate of Miami University and has studied at The Institute for Management Development in Lausanne, Switzerland and The University of Houston's Future Studies Program. Steve and family live in sunny Wilmington, NC and historic Merida, Mexico.
Over the last few years, we have used Steve as a speaker at over 35 Sprint events held for business owners interested in growth.
Our post-event surveys indicate that customers and potential customers had a higher opinion of Sprint after the event, much due to Steve's unique ability.
We had the privilege of working with Mr. Little to create a one-of-a-kind high level management program for the top leaders of our industry.
Unlike so many of the other speakers we’ve hired, Mr. Little truly did his homework. After personally visiting many animal hospitals, reading through materials about our industry and interviewing some key leaders within our organization, Mr. Little truly delivered a especially customized message.
I believe your business acumen and presentation style are perfect for Chamber audiences. Being both charismatic and dynamic, you pulled the audience in from the beginning. You were so well received by our audience that they are anxiously awaiting your return to Northern Kentucky.
