Steve Sue, Story Guy, Biz Maker & “Chief Lemon Head”
Steve was a story guy, then became a biz maker and is now dedicated to empowering youth entrepreneurs.
Steve first learned the art of business storytelling in Burbank, CA as a theme park and live entertainment production designer. He went on to become a “hired gun” conceptualist and high-stakes pitch guy in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas. For a decade, he was an idea guy for national foodservice, retail, technology, entertainment and product brands. And for another decade, he was known as a top conceptualist of mega-resort casinos around the world.
Autodesk, maker of AutoCAD, provided a key turning point in Steve’s career when they turned his signature hand-drawing style into software to convert technical drawings into artistic presentations. Through Autodesk, Steve gained an appreciation for software development which spawned a quest to make better business software.
Steve is the author of BizGym® Entreprenuer’s Growth Software and Bizgenics® Business Genome Project, a business neural network theory that decodes the genome of business. He’s also a partner in Honolulu-based RankHI Digital Marketing Agency and LeiHut.com Online Store of Hawaii Products.
