Speaking | Scott B Harris


For over eight years, Scott has been to learning how to be resilient.

From the moment he woke up from a coma, Scott had to make a choice – he had to decide which road to walk down after his life was changed forever. The choice he made back then has taught him the true meaning of resilience.

To overcome adversity, Scott had to have the right mindset and persistence to achieve his goals. Since then, Scott has dedicated himself to inspiring others to be resilient and achieve their goals in life.

"From Scott's speech, it has really made me appreciate what I have in my life and to look at things in a more positive way, as there are some people in the world who are suffering from many things. He has also encouraged me to go out of my comfort zone and that I am capable of achieving my dreams."

I admire Scott’s authenticity and his courage to share his story. The lessons he shared with us today have a direct connection to where we are as a team and as a business, and the importance of having that growth mindset. His presentation has had a profound impact on me personally and the team today as well. He really took us on a journey and stripped himself bare in terms of where he’s come from what he’s learned along the way. What a brilliant presentation.

I found Scott’s presentation inspiring, uplifting and his use of humour was both unexpected (given the gravity of the situation) and very clever. His professionalism and the warmth with which he communicated with the audience were excellent. I loved the way he shared his story and my experience was of being touched, moved and inspired. Scott you have a very powerful message and one that makes a difference

Scott Harris has come back from the dead. His story is both compelling and inspiring.

Mesmerizing from the start to the end, Scott is a storyteller of the highest order. His journey is raw and inspiring refusing to shy away from the topics that can upset people, I would highly recommend Scott to speak at any event you are having

- Ayden Shaw, Sport and Recreation Manager

Scott’s keynote was presented very well. I found it very motivational, and Scott’s message to keep having a go no matter what resonated well with the entire room. A good measurement of a successful presentation is the number of questions the audience feels they can ask, and the strong engagement in question time really showed us that.

- Mark Taylor, Chief Executive Officer
ACE Radio

Thank you so much. I won't ever forget today and will always remember you. You are a wonderfully talented presenter. Well done and keep up the great work. All the best to you and your family.  I feel privileged enough to have met you and appreciated you opening up to us. I'll continue to follow you on social media.

An important lesson I have learned from my journey – a journey I hope you’ll never have to take – is about mindset.

The Choices We Make

The choices we make in life can either make us or break us. I have made two significant choices in my life that have broken me and made me into...

My Journey

My Journey

Over the coming weeks I will be writing a series of blog posts about my journey and how far I’ve come.

This is what a book should look like after it’s been well read! Pages bent, water logged and bunny ear! Thanks for the photo @kasia__xox. We are taking this book into schools around Victoria so that students can learn some huge life lessons from the safety of the class room. Thank you @kasia__xox and Gabrielle Panozzo for helping me out with this, and out of kindness of your heart too! I’m going to try my hardest to pay you back in any way I can! Forever grateful! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! With a fresh start to the new year, we’ve got a new look! A redevelopment of my brand - Scott B Harris - check out the outstanding job that’s been done on my website thanks to The Refinery in Melbourne. Check it out @ www dot ScottBHarris dot com dot au and let me know what you think? This has definitely given me motivation to achieve my New Years Goal. My New Years Goal in 2020 is to KICK ASS!! To kick ass in everything I do!! This doesn’t mean winning or being the most successful or being the best, but to simply doing my best at everything I do. Putting in 110% effort in EVERYTHING! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! We’re wishing everyone a safe and merry Christmas! Today is a day to spend with family and or friends! Hold them close :) (p.s. you have permission from me to stuff your face with as much Christmas food as you want!!!) It’s Christmas and the tree finally went up! Most of the presents are bought and wrapped thanks to @jasminelabrie so all we have to do now is enjoy the season! Merry Christmas everyone and I hope everyone has a great summer! I just spoke to a great bunch of year 9 students @aquinascollege, about achieving great things in life! We would be blown away if we knew, deep down, what we were truely capable of. Nothing great was never achieved in someone’s comfort zone! • Speaking is what I do and goals are my bread and butter. I motivate students to aspire for something big through goals! In the middle of nowhere, 20k’s from nothing, down into the valley and over the bridge, we found this special little gem. From the heart of Montana, I present to you... GREAT FALLS!!! Really... there’s not much to say about this place beside our car broke down and the people thought our Australian accents were funny... y’all. If you’re ever in that neck of the woods be sure to drop in and be laughed at by the locals. • Traveling the world solo with a traumatic brain injury was pretty damn hard but I found comfort behind the lens to hide my social anxiety! Yes, thanks right, I was hiding. But hey I took some pretty cool pictures along the way right? The camera became my little safe house and spat these out in return.
