Today, Stephen works exclusively in education in the following roles;

– Chair of the Queensland Principals’ Roundtable
– Chair of the Queensland Senior Leaders Roundtable.
Stephen’s approach to life is guided by three fundamental beliefs. Firstly, that culture is a true reflection of the leadership available to it; secondly, good, bad or otherwise, you cannot not influence a culture; and finally, cultural change will only ever commence once you have changed yourself. It is for this reason that he created The 15 Disciplines to enable leaders to gain mastery of the influence they have on their cultures.
To relax, he enjoys time spent with family and friends and mountain bike riding. His love for the ocean and need for speed, has allowed him to jet ski most of the coastline between New South Wales and the Whitsundays. Stephen lives in Brisbane with his wife Cassandra and they have one daughter Erin.
