Meet Steele Curry
For more than 15 years, Steele Curry was actively involved in the youth mentoring field. He wrote the Citizen of the World Guides to give young individuals the recommendations they need for making the most of their lives and careers, regardless of their background or lack of experience. The www.COTWguides.com website was set up to make this information available free in the fastest, most direct way possible for everyone to whom it would be of immediate benefit.
In order to maximize their success, many young individuals seeking to enter the workplace today have a hunger for knowing how to properly conduct themselves in a wide range of different social and work-related situations. Their parents may have been unable to pass on some of this information, their schools and colleges might not have done so, or they may have recently come from a country with an entirely different culture and language. The Citizen of the World Guides were developed to address this knowledge gap.
Visitors to our website are encouraged to contact Steele with any comments, suggestions or questions you may have. Contact Steele here.
Steele has more than 40 years of business experience, including being the CEO of a successful publicly traded retail organization, starting a tool rental business with The Home Depot, owning a restaurant (always a humbling occupation), and serving on the board of directors of a number of corporations and charities. He was the board chair of the Alberta Mentor Foundation for Youth (2003–2008) and vice-chair of the board of directors of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area (2008-2016). For 16 years, Steele served as a mentor to high school students in Calgary under a program known as “mPower Youth Mentoring”.
Steele received a B.A. from Stanford University and an M.B.A. from Harvard University. He has lived in Canada, France and the U.S. and traveled extensively to most parts of the world, including Asia, South America, Europe, Africa and throughout North America.
Born in Winnipeg, Canada, Steele is married to Judy Kaganov who has a Ph.D in psychology. They have three children and live in Calgary, Canada. Every summer, the Currys spend two to three months on a Greek island in the Aegean Sea. Apart from mentoring, Steele's passion is books.
Steele is extremely interested in receiving your ideas and thoughts about the Citizen of the World Guides and www.COTWguides.com. Contact Steele here.
