Reading your customers and identifying what they are feeling or thinking requires a unique skill set.

Change is inevitable. We live in a world of challenge, conflict & adversity. Those companies that identify and embrace change become the dominate market leaders in their field. Those that are reactive miss opportunities and are constantly playing catch up. In Steve’s powerful keynote Building strength and resilience he illustrates not only how to embrace change and build positive outcomes in the face of adversity but how to thrive.

To make your event a success the keynote speaker you select has to be the right fit for your organisation or conference theme.

When a company employs a speaker for their event they expect several things; value for money, a return on investment, audience relevance, to be entertained and to walk away with several key take-aways. These key ingredients are crucial to the success of any conference.

Having presented hundreds of keynote presentations at seminars, conferences and events world-wide with audiences ranging from 80 to 3,000 attendees Steve is committed to making your event a memorable and talked about success long after your event.

Gain An “Edge” When Interviewing, Selling Or Negotiating… By Deciphering Messages Hidden In Body Language.

After assisting police in 76 homicide investigations and 2 serial killer cases, the media gave Steve the moniker “The Human Lie Detector”. In order to help police read people Steve developed his unique 4 stage process together with his hugely successful “60 Second Profiling Technique”. Steve has trained intelligence agencies, homicide detectives, the Defence Security Authority and Department of Defence personnel in how to read people and detect deception by analysing verbal, non-verbal and paralinguistic behaviours. That same process is now taught by Steve throughout the world to CEO’s, business executives, recruiters, portfolio managers, the banking & finance industry, customer service reps, investigators and sales professionals to do their jobs better. Steve’s training helps you succeed at the negotiation table… read people like a book… cultivate deeper relationships… and dramatically increase profits.

Detect Deception By Looking “Between The Words”

Knowing how to analyse the content and structure of language gives you a distinct advantage. In any conversation — with staff, prospects, clients, vendors or candidates — you can detect the difference between what’s said and what’s true. And this knowledge is power.

What people are saying.

“Without doubt, the best conference presentations I have ever seen were the two by Steve van Aperen at an event in Tehran in August 2017. He was engaging, sophisticated, entertaining and above all, the content was superbly educational and useful, a far cry from the usual motivational pseudo-psychological dross delivered at big conferences.

He kept the audience totally spellbound for three hours.
I am considered to be a top conference speaker, but Steve’s presentation put mine in the shade.”
Professor Malcolm McDonald MA (Oxon) MSc, PhD, DLitt DSc, Emeritus Professor, Cranfield University School of Management Chairman of six companies.

“Steve is an extremely interesting individual…He is an expert in the non-verbal cues to look for when people may be saying one thing but thinking something else. He specialises in reading and analysing distress signals and facial expressions. I would certainly love to have him by my side in the business world, where his powers of observation would be a fantastic resource.” Steve Waugh AO Australian of the Year 2004 Former Australian Cricket Captain
“Steve van Aperen is a man who studies the way people answer questions and at the same time their body language. He makes his living out of sorting truth from deception.” Mike Munro, Journalist & Former 60 Minutes Reporter
I attended the 27th Annual Association of Certified Fraud Examiners Global Fraud Conference in Las Vegas and was lucky enough to see Steve’s presentation to an audience of 3,000 which was brilliant – insightful, entertaining, and very informative. My focus, however, completely changed when I witnessed his presentation and noted the many ways in which he skillfully and hilariously consolidated the art and science of assessing and interpreting human behavior: delightful and compelling. Colm Martin Adjunct professor at Golden Gate University, San Francisco
“Dear Steve, Your presentation to the CEO Clubs of New York City was amazingly informative and entertaining. It is not often that we have a speaker that can keep command of the room the way you did today at the Harvard Club. The buzz in the room was that you were one of the best speakers we have ever had.”Gary M. Anzalone, CEO Clubs New York City
“Steve presented at our IBM conference and his delivery was world class. Strong content interwoven with anecdotal stories and a few clever jokes which had the 1,000 people plus sitting on the edge of their seats.”Leon Paul (IBM)
Have you heard of Steve Van Aperen? Well, if you haven’t yet, you will very soon. Steve is right up there as one of the best key note speakers that I have had the privilege of working with. As an expert in human behaviour, reading body language and detecting deception Steve has some amazing stories to share and is really entertaining for audiences of any size. What I love most about Steve is his ability to share his technical knowledge in a way that’s engaging, memorable and very funny – I’m talking laugh-out-loud, sore cheeks and watering eyes kind of funny. I have no doubt that this is the reason that Steve has become well known all over the globe.Soozey Johnstone, Author, Thought Leader, Business Builder.
