Keynote Speaker - Stephen P. Duncanson

Stephen P. Duncanson (Steve) has been actively involved in the process of positively impacting the hearts and minds of people, both young and old for more than 20 years. From an early age, he recognized his unique ability to communicate a message and create a picture that would cause people to challenge their present state of being. He believes that if you can help people see themselves beyond where they presently are, to where they ultimately want to be, you can be successful in helping them shape their very destiny.

Steve's background and accompanying strong personal values taught him early in his journey that everything and everyone in life has a purpose. His pursuit of that purpose led him to become a member of the New York City Police Department, after majoring in Police Science at Manhattans John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Steve retired as a highly decorated member of the N.Y.P.D. in the rank of Sergeant in May 1996 and was recruited to work as the Chief of Staff for Outbound Operations, for a major non-profit organization. This position afforded him the opportunity to travel and to speak to audiences throughout the United States, Africa, Europe, Australia, and Singapore.

Steve is now a member of the Les Browns Speaker's Bureau and an Affiliate of Leadership Development Group, Inc. His company is True Destiny Communications (http://blog.truedestinycommunications.com/), where his primary focus is leadership training, personal development and motivational speaking. Steve is also the co-author fo the new book: "Unleash the Leader Within You."

Steve's philosophy is predicated on the principle that the only way to impact society corporately, is by impacting people, individually.
