Steve Prentiss

Steve Prentice is a consultant, author, university lecturer, and keynote speaker. For thirty years his expertise has focused on the place where people and technology crash into each other in the workplace. With a professional background in organizational psychology and project management, his clients bring him in to learn how to work with new technologies and techniques, which most recently have included hybrid workplaces, cybersecurity, and generative AI, but which stretch all the way back to the introduction of Windows computers and the global threat of Y2K in the workplace. 

His key skill is the ability to explain the complexities and ambiguities of technology in ways that people can easily understand and become comfortable with.  

In 1994 he founded the Bristall Company, which continues to deliver professional development workshops and soft-skills education to busy corporate teams across North America and around the world through innovative online and asynchronous teaching methods.  

Steve is the author of three business books and one novel and has ghost-written 10 other books for industry leaders. He lectures regularly in the Continuous Education Department at Ontario Tech University and is the host and producer of podcasts for some of his corporate clients, as well as his own, called CoolTimeLife.  

Academically, Steve graduated from Concordia University in Montreal in 1989 with a B.A. in Communications Studies and was Valedictorian of the 1989 graduating year. Steve attended Law School in Toronto between 1989 and 1991 and was the official Rhodes Scholarship Candidate for York University for 1991. He returned to York University 10 years later and obtained his degree in Psychology. 

He also works regularly as a musician, playing in the corporate events band Absolutely Jack, as well as performing as a solo singer and guitarist.
