Steven Monahan Seeding Greatness.


Some people change their ways when they see the light; others only when they feel the heat

Hi, I’m Steven Monahan. I am the Licensee of TEDx Dupree Park. Former fortune 100 executive. CEO FIDOS DOG FOOD & FIDOS WATER COMPANIES. Founder Director GPA Charities.


For the past two years, I have also been a TEDx licensee and creator of TEDx Dupree Park. TED events are uplifting gatherings of people sharing and seeding their ideas of greatness with the world.

Every day I feel joy and awe for life. We live in a truly wonderful world. While we are living through some trying times right now we are still truly blessed and fortunate. They say life is a journey. And it has certainly been an amazing one for me. I have risen to the heights and walked through the depths of the valley of death. Each struggle brought with it a new awakening. A higher rising, becoming more in love with the magnificence of life.



Each of our special and unique lives is a work in progress. There is both light and dark in each of us. But with a desire to live a good life, service to others curiosity for life, we can rise above the dark, into the light becoming more, awakened, compassionate, and loving every day.

Possess a curiousity, openess and reverence to life and you will open a portal to a world of wonder & awe.

We produced two TEDx events in 2020 & 2021

The theme of our TEDx Dupree Park Events in 2020 & 2021 were Seeding Greatness. Based on one of our guiding life principles summed up in this ancient Greek quote

“Great societies grow, and blossom when its people plant trees, they know they will never sit under.”


Happy picture of our amazing TED speakers who came from across the globe to speak on our TEDx Dupree Park stage in December 2021.



We and our team believe that, across the globe, community elders, leaders, and people must come together and step forward to fiercely and eloquently speak their hope and passion for Peace & the future of mankind. We are awakening and remembering our story of oneness with all; humanity, animals, nature, and this communal blue dot we all call home. Soon we will grow stronger, blossom, and become closer together as a community, humanity, and world”.
