In 2005 Steve was nominated by UniSA for an Australian University Teaching Award. A PhD Graduate of the University of Adelaide, Steve's PhD examined the use and impact of the internet for marketing activities within the value chain of the South Australian Wine Industry and identified a marketing planning framework for the firm and its interactions with other firms in its value system.
