Frequently Asked Questions
As time-efficient and helpful as my offer will be for you, I’m aware a few people looking for a healthcare speaker still won’t call. Perhaps I failed to answer a question that was important to you…
Here are answers to the other questions I’m frequently asked…
Steve, will you be a good fit for my group?
I’ve spoken at a very wide range of corporate and association meetings. Addressing diverse audiences ranging from urgent care physicians to lawyers. And from CEOs to senior administrators.
My program is ideal for everyone who tackles challenging problems or makes tough, stressful decisions. Also for anyone looking to enhance their emotional intelligence so they can managing the emotional tone of their healthcare team.
The most common conference themes are leadership, sales and customer service, change management, teambuilding, creativity and personal development seminars. Perspective PowerTM strategies turbocharge performance in all these areas. You can be confident that my message will weave seamlessly into the theme and general direction of your healthcare meeting.
What are your a/v requirements?
Ridiculously simple and inexpensive...
- I need to be easily seen and heard. I got a standing ovation at all of my speeches in 2008 & 2009…except one. (That’s right. You’ve guessed it. The one exception was when I couldn’t be easily seen and heard.)
- I also need an 8 by 12 foot stage area with the front row of your audience up close. That’s because I bring people up on stage during my speeches—as many as five at a time.
- FYI: I don’t use PowerPoint. It’s crushingly boring and (once you throw in the projector and screens) prohibitively expensive.
How long is your speech?
I’m generally invited to speak for 45-75 minutes. (I also have half- and full day programs, what do you need?)
Steve, can I get some references?
Absolutely! Give me a call (972 352 6622) and I'll hook you up with some of my clients.
Steve, can I get your online video on DVD to show my committee?
Sure, give me a call (972 352 6622) and I’ll pop one in the mail.
Steve can I book you directly or should I contact a speakers bureau?
The easiest way to hire me is to call. If you're already working with a bureau my National Coordinator (Krystal Simpkins) would be happy to, well… “coordinate” with them.
Still have unanswered questions or lingering concerns? Please call (972 352 6622) or email. I will address your concerns personally.
PS: Here are more people who – just like you – had questions, got them answered…and are thrilled they did!
On behalf of the HFMA, I want to thank Dr Bedwell for the most intriguing, fun, and motivating session we have seen. He was the best speaker I have heard in years--he made it fun and informative and I could not leave my seat!

Dr. Bedwell’s keynote session set the tone for our entire conference. The energy, laughter, and positivity Steve shared carried over into all the remaining conference sessions. We look forward to having him back for our next event!
