From senior executives and managerial staff, to students and non-profit members, his ability to craft a focused message specific to your needs is unrivaled. ABOUT STEPHEN With successful careers in professional audio, digital media, video production, online market research and winemaking, Stephen's entrepreneurial journey has seen him deliver world-class results across multiple industries. Having traveled to 42 countries on six continents, as well as all 50 states, his style of delivering focused inspirational messages enhanced by entertaining real-life anecdotes ensures your audience will enjoy an unforgettable experience. Author of the forthcoming "Dream. Build. Believe." memoir on the founding of Notaviva Vineyards, Stephen's ability to interweave seemingly disparate events into fascinating story threads leaves audiences spellbound. Named Loudoun County, Virginia's "Entrepreneur of the Year" in 2012, winner of International gold medals for his Notaviva Vineyards wines, and winner of a Silver Telly Award for his Mesh Multimedia "Valor" video production, he is continually striving for higher degrees of personal and professional excellence. From touring the world with musical artists such as Bon Jovi, Matchbox20, Julio Iglesias, and Amy Grant (to name just a few) to overseeing the launch of a market research software development division in New Delhi, India to co-starring in the reality television series "Dream House" on HGTV, to founding Notaviva Vineyards, Virginia farm winery and Mesh Multimedia, a creative agency all while starting a family, Stephen's drive and tenacity in overcoming seemingly impossible odds are inspiring. Described as accessible, down to earth and grounded, his style instantly puts audiences at ease and captures their imaginations. His vision and courage along with wife Shannon in creating the world's first winery that pairs wine with music has created an entirely new concept in an industry thousands of years old. Articulating the challenges along the way as well as the lessons learned have proven to captivate, motivate and move audiences from all walks of life. TOPICS The Journey (Keynote) Learn about the leaps of faith taken and the challenges faced in leaving a small town in Virginia for the bright lights of the professional audio and entertainment industries, and how those risks ultimately culminated in the purchase of an abandoned cattle farm on a romantic whim to found a Virginia farm winery. Learn how entrepreneurial vision, focused dedication, and unstoppable belief in one's self can alter the course of your life and your business. Wine Paired With Music (Entertainment) A unique experience invented by Stephen in 2009, your audience will conduct blind wine tastings while listening to various music playlists in an effort to decide as a group which music track is best suited for the wine being tasted. Complete with an overview of the underlying neurological processes that create these sensory perceptions as well as a few hilarious "roadie stories" this exercise will leave your audience with a new respect for the impact of music on human emotion as well as its impact on enological sensory perception. Design a Winery Brand (Teambuilding) A teambuilding exercise conducted around a brand-building challenge, this interactive contest has proven to be both a highly entertaining as well as educational business experience. As host and judge of the contest, Stephen's ability to challenge your team - as well as create a little friendly competitive tension - will provide a wonderful bonding opportunity for your group. Technological Innovations for Rural Enterprises (Educational) By leveraging social media and emerging technologies, rural and small business owners can level the playing field and compete at a whole new level.
