In 2010, Steve retired from medicine to devote more time to his other passion, engaging audiences all around the country with his unique brand of personal experiences and practical humor. Steve has spoken to thousands of people since 1987, throughout the United States, Canada and Israel. Through his passionate keynote speeches and dynamic workshops, Steve’s inspirational stories and concrete examples help professionals, general audiences, and our youth learn how to communicate and connect in these challenging times – making it possible for them to rediscover their passion and joys of life.

Session One: This insightful and humorous workshop will give you powerful new ways of dealing with even the most difficult people and situations, so you can keep your serenity and walk away with a smile on your face — no matter what anyone else says or does. For this session, Shama applies his knowledge to business settings and dealings within the art world.


Session Two: Are you anxious, fearful, or just not feeling confident about your next speaking opportunity? You can really look forward to it by attending this fun-filled session. Learn how to bring passion to your public speaking by choosing topics that are close to your heart, and connecting with audiences in a truly unforgettable way. Bring ideas for your presentation, and we’ll add a few “ingredients” that will make you eager and excited to share yourself and your ideas with the world.
