Steve's Story

After graduating from Harvard, Steve spent several years in New York as a struggling singer/actor. Steve began his business career selling computers for IBM and excelled in the highly competitive New York/New Jersey marketplace.

For over the 25 years Steve has served as trusted advisor to professional services firms, corporations of all sizes, and entrepreneurs - across a wide array of industries - in both in the USA and UK.

Helping professionals understand how to develop the kind of relationships that inspire trust and confidence and win work is a main focus of Steve's work. Clients value Steve's business and people acumen, along with his clear insights and ability to hit the ground running to produce results quickly. They also like his relaxed but no nonsense style. They consider him challenging but easy to work with and appreciate his ability to deliver difficult messages in a sensitive manner.

A second area of concentration is helping clients develop as managers and leaders. In professional services firms, he often coaches junior staff on their journey to partner.

A final area of Steve's focus is helping busy professionals improve their personal productivity. When Steve began the company in 1985 he pioneered a unique program called Kaplan's Time Factor™. For the past 25 years the program's simple and direct on-the-job approach has consistently enabled countless numbers of professionals and their administrative counterparts to become totally organized and have more time, less stress and a better life/work balance. The program has been modified and refined over the years but its core principles remain unchanged. KTF is as highly workable as ever in today's "always on" business environment in which the demand to maximize personal productivity is stronger than ever.

Steve's clients include medium and large international accounting firms (including all of the Big Four) and law firms and a range of corporations of all sizes across most industries, as well as entrepreneurs.
