Speaking | Scott B Harris


For a long time Scott has been learning how to overcoming adversity. 

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 choices he has made have defined his life and carved a new path for him to follow.

To overcome adversity, Scott had to have the right mindset and perseverance to achieve his goals. Since then, Scott has dedicated himself to inspiring others, to help them overcome adversity 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’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

I’ll start by telling you a quick story. So it was mid-2016, about seven and a half years after my accident, and I really wanted to buy a hat.
