Fasten your seat belt and hold on tight as one of North America's most entertaining and motivational speakers presents his renowned Making a Difference™ presentation. This insightful and dynamic session focuses on the conscious choices we make every day that impact the lives of others. It's an eye-opening and heartfelt message detailing how to positively influence people in every imaginable way, regardless of our position or status. Each of us has the potential to transform the culture of an organization through our actions and attitudes.

What South Dakota state employees have said about Steve Gilliland:

“Steve's presentation was the all-time best seminar that I have ever attended. He presented the material from a different perspective with many "Ah-ha" moments. His shared personal experiences enhanced the ability of his audience to relate to the speaker and his message.”

“If you ever want to motivate a state employee, keep inviting Steve Gilliland back to speak. He was an awesome speaker. “

“He made me laugh, almost cry, and gave me a lot to think about. He was the best speaker BHR has had in all the years I have attended this event.“

“I liked the way he used humor in his presentation and related life experiences.”

“Great motivator and also had very good ideas to make you realize what you can do better as a leader within your organization.”

“I could have listened to Mr Gilliland for the entire 1 1/2 days of the conference instead of only the half-day session. He brought many people around me to tears with his powerful stories and method of expressing his message.”

“If this man can't motivate a person, I can't imagine who could.”

Making a Difference™
centers on three empowering dynamics:
  • Purpose: It's what drives you!
  • Passion: It's what fuels you!
  • Pride: It's what defines you!

While we don't always know what challenges face the people we meet every day, we do have the power to bring them hope. That hope can multiply a thousand times over and spread throughout the world exponentially-and it all begins with you. This is the essential, motivating truth behind Making a Difference™.
