Stephen Kenney is the Principal Consultant of Neon Vita, a business focused on delivering innovative safety communication programs. He also volunteers as CEO for Meal-a-day, a Not-for-Profit that provides support for some of the poorest communities in Asia Pacific. Stephen’s journey from boffin to safety storytelling evangelist started in high temperature fluoride reaction engineering, a pursuit he found interesting, not personally fulfilling. From there he discovered three of his major passions: • Water and environmental management, • OHS and Process safety, and • Emergency response. Prior to his current role, Stephen was the HSEQ manager for a Central Queensland explosives manufacturer. It was during these seven years that Stephen started to really appreciate and use the power of storytelling to advance a culture of teamwork and trust. Currently it’s Stephen’s mission to elevate storytelling to a core skill used by HSE and Process Safety professionals to advance their organizations safety culture.
