Not your typical business keynote speaker, Steve Haffner has a fascinating background and talent stack that infuses his presentations with a unique perspective and valuable insights.
Steve had a successful 30 year career in information systems as a program developer, systems engineer, and product manager. He was a business analyst for a Fortune 500 insurance company and held the title of Vice-President of Performance Measurement Systems for a healthcare information corporation.
In 2011, he forged a new path by launching his own entertainment business, performing magic and mentalism shows across the U.S., captivating audiences with psychological illusions.
Through his study of magic and the psychology of illusions, Steve discovered how the subconscious mind invisibly affects human behavior and decision making.
Steve explores the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral science to gain a deeper understanding of cognitive biases, heuristics (mental shortcuts), and other illogical and often irrational impulses that guide how we think, feel, and decide.
Steve has discovered that these insights have valuable applications in the domains of leadership, relationships, culture, communication, productivity, and creativity.
In 2020 Steve became President of the Kentucky chapter of the National Speakers Association.
