Nearly 80% of organizational problems can be traced back to lack of open, honest communication. You can’t fix a problem you don’t know about, and you can’t move on an idea that no one tells you about. The key is to get the unsaid, said.
No one knows this better than keynote speaker, Steven Gaffney. As the leading expert on honest communication, he has helped thousands of people understand the costs of withholding information both at work and at home.

Steven’s inability to speak as a child forced him to learn the importance of effective communication at a very early age. By age three, he mumbled only a few words, and a doctor advised his mother that he should be placed in special classes for mentally handicapped children. Steven’s mother did not accept this diagnosis, and doctors eventually discovered that his inability to speak was caused by hearing impairments (brought on by multiple ear infections). The problem was corrected and no one has been able to silence him since!
Steven is now a Certified Speaking ProfessionalTM and esteemed member of the Million Dollar Speaking Group of the National Speakers Association. He has been a regular contributor to some of the most respected national television, radio, and print media outlets; and he is the author of several publications: “Just Be Honest”, “Honesty Works!”, “Honesty Sells”, “Guide to Increasing Communication Flow Up, Down, and Across Your Organization”, “21 Rules for Delivering Difficult Messages”, and “The Fish isn’t Sick…The Water is Dirty”. His latest book, “Be a Change Champion”, is the only one of its kind, dedicated to leading and maintaining successful change.
