With hard work and determination, he ultimately became an inspirational keynote speaker, executive coach, best-selling author and marketing leader who helps ensure the success of others.  Today, Marques energizes audiences with such riveting keynotes as The Success Cycle, Performance Driven Leadership for Success, The Power of Perseverance and Resiliency, and Diversity & Inclusion.

Discover your blind-spots and awaken to your true potential with:  Dr. Steve Taubman, Empowerment Expert

Dr. Steve’s early years were plagued by crippling anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. Despite graduating valedictorian from one of the nation’s top chiropractic colleges and running a thriving practice, Dr. Steve found that his outer success did little to calm his inner turmoil.

Thus began a thirty year journey to understand the root of his suffering. His exploration of Western psychotherapy, Eastern teachings of mindfulness, hypnosis, and the science of neurology provided profound insight into the universal nature and cause of suffering; the subconscious mind… which ultimately led to the creation of his successful UnHypnosis system and bestselling book.

Blending his teachings with a long time passion for comedy and magic, Dr. Steve developed a series of insightful, fun presentations about mastering the subconscious mind which were quickly embraced by organizations for their ability to get people in action.

Since then, Dr. Steve’s excitement, motivation and enthusiasm have earned him fans from every profession as he continues to enthrall audiences worldwide, helping them remove mental barriers to achieving their dreams.
