Founder of Bully Back Off

Steve Andrews


Steve has had over 25 years working with children and youth and the past 14 specializing in “Bullying” and how to deal with it. Having now reached thousands of professionals, parents and children,

His programs a have won; The Solicitor General’s Award for Community Safety , The Society for Children and Youth Award for Child and Youth Friendly Communities,  Youth Action Award from The BC Attorney General’s Office as well as society and corporate awards.


Constantly bullied as a child and teen, and never telling anyone (not even his parents).  Steve takes you through the constant battle that was his life.  Engaging, funny, touching, and rewarding.

Steve is able to take you there, to the very incidents. Close your eyes and you will be a bystander, a participant, even a victim.  As an adult his child-hood bullying affected his relationships, his work and informs his work today. Let him tell you how. You will be amazed how anger and fear can drive the bullied!

Then he moves on to; “Bullying! How did we get it so wrong?”

What we are doing about it and why it is not working!

And then he provides real solutions.  Participants leave with a new understanding of bullying, cyber-bullying,  and more importantly, real skills they can use themselves or teach their children.

And the bullying will stop!

•             I just want to thank Steve and tell him how much he meant to me.  He's really changed a lot in my life. I don't love school, but I'm not afraid to go anymore. I now have a best friend who cares about me, and my marks have gotten way better in school. And my self-confidence has raised to the sky.
