"I invited Steve to give a guest lecture at Harvard Business School on diversity in the workplace. He was fantastic. He was able to successfully engage the students on a sensitive topic without offending anyone. Many, myself included, came away thinking differently about the value of diversity in the workplace. His presentation was so much more than the platitudes that many of us have come to expect from a diversity talk. Of particular value was a discussion of concrete strategies to successfully create an inclusive environment beyond just setting quotas. I can highly recommend Steve."
"I had the opportunity to hear Stephen speak at a Toronto conference in March, during the middle of his preparation for the upcoming London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. He described succinctly how to create policy and process that embraces diversity and inclusion using the example of his work at LOCOG. The speech was brilliant. The candor of his comments was refreshing."
"Steve Frost spoke as a keynote at the March 2012 Multicultural Forum on Workplace Diversity in Minneapolis, talking about the creation of a diverse and inclusive 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games. In about 40 minutes he held the 600 diversity professionals in attendance spellbound as he recounted the opportunities and challenges of the first truly inclusive Olympics. He also challenged them to do the same within their own organizations and left them inspired to rise to Olympic heights. I have a received kudos and high praise for inviting him to speak, but the kudos and praise belong to Steve Frost!"
