Throughout his life, Steve Fredlund has made profound impact as an award-winning actuary, humanitarian, coach, consultant, author, podcaster, entrepreneur and leader of African safaris. Now focused on keynote speaking, Steve combines the richness of his eclectic success with his personal authenticity and desire to serve his audiences.
As “The Safari Dude,” Steve helps people learn to approach every area of life as if it were an African safari, leaning to realize that life, itself, is an epic adventure, not just something that happens between the adventures. Along with others who are living “The Safari Way,” Steve realized that there are five factors (the “Big Five”) that not only lead to a more epic African safari, but lead to a more epic experience in our life, work and leadership.
As a two-time TEDx speaker, Steve communicates through compelling stories and memorable phrases that keep his ideas front-of-mind years into the future. His captivating and humorous approach keeps audiences engaged and longing for more. Steve has been called “genuine”, “hilarious” and “the only actuary, in the history of actuaries, you actually WANT to sit next to during dinner.”
Steve earned fellowship in the Society of Actuaries and holds a Masters in Business Administration. When not working, he can be found on the disc golf course, playing a poker tournament or suffering through another season as a Minnesota sports fan.
