Picture M*A*S*H's Hawkeye Pearce as a financial consultant instead of a surgeon and you'll have some idea why laughter rang through the walls for an hour and a half outside a Tuesday workshop on pharmacy cash flow.

Steve LeFever, MBA, CFE, Chairman and Founder (click here for Steve's Keynote brochure .pdf) Steve LeFever, part comedian, part financial manager, former commercial banker, current entrepreneur ― and 100% world-class presenter. Steve drives home his message with a no-nonsense, laugh-out-loud approach that makes him the top-rated presenter at virtually every conference he attends.
Driving financial discipline and initiating change in diverse types of organizations (distribution networks, trade associations or franchise groups to name a few) can be a big challenge ― and in this area, Steve LeFever can do it like no one else. The thousands who hear him speak every year applaud his distinct "tell it like it is" perspective on independent business, financial management, and commercial banking. But it's his interaction and connection with his audiences that brings his message home.
Whether your goal is to hit a 'home run' with a keynote convention presentation, to introduce BRS' trademarked Fiscal Physical® process to your network or inspire your corporate staff to build stronger relationships with your members or customers ― Steve will do the job.
I have had so many people tell me how much they enjoyed your presentation style, particularly your sense of humor. (Some were absolutely amazed that they could have a financial address delivered in such an entertaining fashion!) Even now, some six months after the event, I still hear convention delegates singing your praises.
