Speaking

When meeting planners choose me to deliver a keynote, they’re giving audiences a powerful experience that blends engaging stories, real-world examples, and practical advice.

Many of these meeting planners also have me deliver a workshop immediately following the keynote, expanding the benefits received by participants. Watch the video trailer to the right to see me in action.

It has been my pleasure to work with Scott when he delivered keynotes at two conferences. One in Singapore via video conference and the other in-person in London. Scott is a true professional, which made the process quick and effective, and a knowledgeable, articulate and engaging speaker, receiving superb feedback from our delegates. I fully expect to work with Scott again and, frankly, look forward to it.
