Steve LeFever, Profit Mastery Program Founder
Finance = boring. For Steve LeFever, this equation doesn’t work.
With a superior command of his subject material, he makes finance compelling, interesting, and funny. Steve’s unique ability to take complex topics and translate them into plain English separates him from the crowd.
Our clients routinely tell us they never expected to take away so much new knowledge from a keynote speech. Steve has a rare skill – being able to motivate business owners and advisors to enthusiastically explore the financial workings of a business and change the areas that need changing. Steve will make you believe that finance ≠ boring; instead you’ll agree with him when he says, “Finance is fun!”
Part comedian, part financial manager, former commercial banker, entrepreneur, and 100% world-class presenter, Steve drives home his message with a no-nonsense, laugh-out-loud approach that makes him the top-rated presenter at virtually every conference he attends. For over 20 years, Steve has combined humor and practical knowledge in hard-hitting, substantive presentations. His ratings currently rank him as the highlight of our clients’ conventions in a wide spectrum of industries. An internationally-recognized author and advocate for independent business, Steve’s book, “Profit Mastery: Knowledge- Driven Financial Performance” has sold over one million copies. Steve has travelled widely, and the Profit Mastery program has been presented on three continents in eight languages over two decades to hundreds of thousands of business owners, managers, commercial bankers, accountants, and business coaches.
