Steve "Shep" Shepard's 31 years of worldwide military service, combined with over 10 years of speaking to military, civilian, and multinational audiences, has enabled him to use the spoken word to inspire audiences regardless of topic. He has a unique ability to connect with audiences whether remembering our military heroes or facing a leadership challenge that needs to be put into context for solution.
One of his passions is America's veterans. He has committed himself to spending time with our veterans, focusing on the World War II era, to capture their experiences for future generations. As he hears their stories, he learns lessons that not only tell of the value of freedom, but also provide tangible examples for everyday life in leadership and public service.
During his career, Shep built a proven record achieving highest levels of productivity in resource constrained environments both at sea and on land. One of the Navy's first Information Warfare Commanders, he is a recognized naval innovator in meeting today’s national security challenges. He translates those experiences of innovation, problem solving, planning, and management skills to audiences seeking to improve their individual or organizational performance.
